We are worse at governing this than Italy or Greece.

When the best you have us "we're better than, uh...Brazil and maybe Russia though..." that's...ugh.

I'm just not able to handle that thought without getting twitchy.

Here is the chart of confirmed deaths dated to July 1st so the numbers are a bit more accurate

It'll be while until they're actually accurate though.  Texas is reporting a large spike in 'at home deaths'.  Florida has been hiding COVID deaths for quite a while, with 1000 pneumonia deaths this past spring above any previous record.

Calm down everyone.  Trump is on it.  He'll make sure that statue of Confederate General Aloysius Lee Beauregard N****r-Kiiller Butler in front of the courthouse in Cousinfark County, Alabama is not torn down by Antifa.

That's the greatest crisis facing our nation now, obviously.

What, you mean having a federal government whose pandemic strategy flips randomly between 'ignore it and hope it goes away', 'sabotage the sane states' efforts' and 'outright threaten the sane states if they don't open shiat up' is farking stupid? No way.

More than a thousand. I thought it was 4k.

USA is performing 3x the testing of the EU. Of course the number of positive cases show as higher.

Interesting how the deaths are tracking so closely.
 
2020-07-08 11:32:22 PM  
Is there a demographic we haven't started killing off yet? How about school kids? Should we start on them next?

Trump and his toadies in state governments have already been demanding that schools open on the normal schedule. So, yeah.

I think what I saw was through the end of May and the numbers were something like the worst year in the last 10 years was 5,000 Pneumonia deaths but this year was at 6,000

We've got that covered. I'm sure school shootings will pick back up whenever it is feasible to resume in person instruction. :(

All the dotted lines in the more complicated graphs are confusing as hell. Why is "10% growth per day" a slope? It's not helping anyone who hasn't done that math since high school. I admit a high schooler in gr 12 who is learning that stuff can probably parse it, but those of us who are way far out from quant are like, "Is it a 10% growth per day or not? On which days? Why is 10% growth per day happening on the same day as -2% growth per day? Can we just start there?" No wonder some people go cross-eyed.

That line should be even more vertical if you account for the unknown cases.

% of tests that come back positive tends to be the best indicator of whether a population is being adequately sampled. If your % is high, that indicates that you're probably rationing tests, with only likely cases getting them.

Guess which country's % positive has shot back up.

This is because we are testing too much! Slow down the testing and this will all go away, right Mr Trump?

Right?
