Why the cases of coronvirus increasing even if we are in quarantine ?

Because it takes time for symptoms to show up. The people who show symptoms now were infected days ago, even weeks ago. People can spread the virus even when they have no symptoms.

More testing availability means more tests which means more cases. Even though most tests are negative.

First of all more people are getting tested and secondly not everybody is in quarantine.

It's obvious that the quarantine nonsense should stop because it's not helping and businesses should get back open. Once the virus has spread then everyone will get immunity so this quarantine lark is just slowing down the process of the virus running out of steam.

Because not everyone is in quarantine. Some are spreading it not realizing they are infected and there are still stupid *sses who refuse to follow the President's and the CDC's messages about social distancing, washing the hands, etc., staying at home except for essential shopping, etc. and they go out and about, frolicking with people they don't know and bring the virus home with them.Source(s): Fact.

because quarantine does not work. this is why. if there was no quarantine THE SAME AMOUNT OF PEOPLE WOULD DIE. it would just take shorter time. and then the whole thing would be over. with quarantine government is just prolonging the agony and ruining the economy. thy should have quarantined china when it started instead of bringing out chinks with foreign citizenships. they re to blame for everything

Because no one is in total quarantine. People still go to the grocery store. They go to pharmacies. And there are still some states in the US where their governors haven't placed any restrictions on activities; I'm sure that will change once the virus hits them more strongly. There are people and industries who are essential and they must remain open and their employees must continuing working. Those in the health care field especially and health care workers are picking up the virus and taking it home to their families.
Every time we make contact with someone, we are risking their health and ours. The virus can live on door knobs, elevator buttons, places we probably don't even think of.
I'm sure many people have been exposed to the virus without even knowing about it at the time and are exposing others to it - before they themselves come down with the symptoms. Not to mention all those people who are symptom free or whose symptoms are so mild they are unaware they have the virus.
Not everyone practices good hygiene; they don't think they need to wash their hands as frequently as they should - or as long as they should.
Plus it is, quite simply, a strong and deadly virus. And is probably mutating.

Not everyone is quarantined. Not everyone under quarantine is observing it.
