On the individual states, switch from adjusted scale to uniform scale and watch what Florida does.

NYC hit "order the morgue cooler trucks" shortly after their new per capita cases hit and sustained for a while near about 1 per 1500 that was right around 4/1/2020  . That's  "dark red" on this heatmap. At this rate, all demographics are being infected rapidly (given the true multiplier of 10x)

This value strongly correlates with overwhelming the medical system, which combined with the inherent CFR of
the covid, means LOTS of people dying.    If you are surprised by this, you haven't been paying attention.
Even the dipshiats @ CNN have started paying attention to per capita #s.

left to right:
forward in time
right edge, yesterday's data

top to bottom:
states (as well as DC and PR because data is available) in 2 groups
those likely to vote Biden, alphabetically
those likely to vote Trump , alphabetically


color:
red : new covid cases detected in tests that day per capita @ 1 in 1000   (bad. really bad)
blue: new covid cases detected in tests that day per capita @ 1 in 1,000,000 (good. really good, all things considered)   anything even less than that (such as  1 in 10,000,000 or no data given that day) shown at this same color.
show on log10 scale ; log (.001)  is -3

data from
https://github.com/nytimes/covid-19-d​a​ta
https://www.270towin.com/maps/consens​u​s-2020-electoral-map-forecast

It's a way of showing this (below) , but for all 50 states simultaneously.

Here you can see that around April 1st, NY and NJ (shown in blues, here) had their "peak" in terms of new cases per capita at approximately  -3.2 on a log scale (about 1 per 1500 people) , which are values that AZ and FL have been moving towards recently (shown in reds, here)


The important things are
1) at that infection level, you overwhelm medical systems
2) at that infection level, under strict lockdown, it takes 60+ days to see an order of magnitude decrease (1 unit on a log scale), meaning new infections fall to 1 per 15,000 people.
3) In reality, these numbers are off by about 10x, according to the CDC data on likely infected vs actually detected. So In reality, if the plot says your area has 1 new case per 1500 people per day, reallly it is more like 1 per 150 .

comeon, at least suggest a chart/plot type

It's sort of interesting how the patterns don't apply uniformly.

For example, Kansas cases start going up dramatically on June 14. Yet deaths aren't rising.

Unlike Texas and others whose cases started rising at the same time.

Why is Maine included in the headline?  We haven't had increasing cases or deaths.  We had a small spike in new cases on July 4th weekend, but have been declining/holding steady otherwise.  Testing is widely available, even if you have no symptoms.  There are eight Covid patients in critical care, and three Covid patients on a ventilator in the entire state.

Here's the most recent seven day average of new cases per million per day (from worldometers), ranked from highest new cases to lowest. It isn't predictive; it just highlights the latest trouble spots. WTF, Florida and Arizona?

In Elementary school, I learned that all you needed to understand any graph was its title, and the labels on the X and Y axes.

/Just saying.

Yeah that's some god awful data viz

I challenge you to show all the data in a single plot  more effectively.

That's not really my thing. But those charts are terrible and don't quickly and easily convey information

the data is

state (qualitative)
date (quantitative)
infection rate  (quantitative)

this is a static website without 3-D or 4-D volume rendering (not that such would be useful for this data)

comeon, at least suggest a chart/plot type
3-D scatter plot?
50 simultaneous line plots?
pie chart?


up your troll game or fark off.

just because you're too stupid to understand what a logarithm or a per capita # is....

Dude, it's not a personal attack. The graphs are awful and useless for the layperson. If you're a data nerd, and you're used to digesting info this way, awesome. That's fantastic. But it looks like warm ballsack to most of us. That isn't a dig on YOU.

Don't speak for "most of us". I understood these graphs perfectly fine without any explanation and I'm a person who does nothing but lay. I think it's a really interesting way to display 50 charts worth of info in a very concise way.


I mean, you would fit into the other category here. I'm saying that, were I to present that graph to 100 people on the streets, the majority would not be able to parse it without explanation. This isn't an attack on you, Leader, or the data. I get why it's set up the way it is, and why. That doesn't make it less convoluted for most.
