it's a start, but it is barely getting going

almost 50% of states are nearing the per capita new daily count that NY peaked at, while NY was under extreme lockdown.  That means (Given the actual 10x multiplier of cases not counted) that about 1 person per 100 per day is actually newly infected in those states.

Fark user imageWith infection rates like that, and too-littl or too-late, or too-little and too-late mitigation efforts while keeping things "somewhat open" things won't be getting better.


This curve will show a narrow-width double re-crossing soon on the CDFs of cases/deaths in the USA when hospital resources are saturated and deaths pile up due to limited resources

Oh, and FFS, stop repasting graphics where people use trailing averages that they call "moving averages".
They are worthless.

Good thing the death rates are somehow inversely related to the number of cases. If everyone catches it then nobody can die of it!

They will go back to the, "all deaths are being reported as covid deaths no matter how they died!" lie they were using in April and May.

The reason that both cases and deaths are increasing in logarithmic fashion is that there are so many people here who are completely unwilling to take precautions.   It's sickening, scary and depressing.   You'll note that I didn't call it surprising, and that's because it has long been apparent to me that Florida culture is the definition of I don't give a Fork about anyone other than myself or anything other than my self interest.

For most of my life people have seemed to be OK with this, at least I've never seen a public effort made to change this.

It's going to become abundantly apparent over the next two to four weeks what this culture means when it's essential that we all work together.    That is to say, Florida is going to make Italy in March look like a stroll in the park.

Yah, with a slightly larger population, Florida now has half as many total cases as NY and their daily death record is almost 12% NY's record.

Who could have possibly predicted this? It's almost like a spike in infections leads to a spike in deaths 3 weeks later! I'm going to call it a "lagging indicator." What's that you say?
 
2020-07-09 3:29:57 PM  
So the infection rate skyrocketed around June 12 or 14th...  Hmm... wonder what could have happened about two weeks prior?

OH, that's right... "Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez announced that beaches and hotels will reopen on June 1."

FaultyFacetiousness: FTFA: "Florida recorded a record-high single day increase in coronavirus deaths and hospitalizations on Thursday, with 120 deaths recorded, [...] The previous single-day high was 113 people recorded in early May. "

Looks like subby didn't even read the article.


Subby probably keeps his own records based on the New York Times data set and has a reason for his headline.

The Tampa Bay Times added a few dozen deaths on one day that they claimed had been left out of the official numbers. As a result their numbers have always been those deaths higher than the official state, Hopkins, and NY Times numbers.

It also means that, for that day, they had an abnormally high death count, but most of the deaths had actually happened days or weeks before.

Here's the article on that: https://www.tampabay.com/news/h​ealth/2​020/05/05/florida-adds-113-coronavirus​-deaths-a-new-one-day-record/

So, yeah, it's arguable, but I would say the 83 is the highest official count of deaths on a given day.

Hell, NY and NJ dumped hundreds of previously uncounted deaths a few days ago. Nobody considers those abnormally high numbers to be particularly meaningful as far as the trend goes.

I stand by my headline.

Why, yes, I do live in Florida and have been obsessively tracking this for months. Why do you ask?

I'm sure all the people who have died, will die, and will have long-term health consequences would be heartened to know it was worse in New York.

And just a few months ago they had hardly and cases and New York had way more.  I'm sure denying the problem will work out just as well as it did the last time.

It's completely a contest.  They were so happy that all those people died because it proved that liberals are stupid and Ron DeSantis had an airtight plan of _______.

So now that the no new cases thing went out the window, they've moved on to less dead people.  And there probably will be less dead people as a percentage based on improved treatment options.  Doctors will have better techniques to save lives, but this will be spun as something Republicans did with their well thought out plans which will not be described in any detail.

Remember:  it's always a contest to own the libs even if grandma has to die to get there.

Florida banned visitors to nursing homes to protect Grandma.

New York ordered nursing homes to accept Covid patients even if they knew they didn't have the ability to protect their other residents.

You might want to consider who actually contributed to Grandma dying.
