COVID-19 Update Thru 5-4-2020 May 5, 2020

Posted by geoff in COVID-19, News.

Howzabout a COVID-19 update? Here are slightly modified versions of Worldometer’s daily casualty charts for the world and for the United States:


You can see that the world’s daily deaths are definitely declining, while the United States’ daily deaths appear to be dropping as well, though not as strongly.

Both graphs show a strong weekly dependence, with peaks in the middle of the week, and troughs on weekends. This suggests that a 7-day moving average might be more appropriate in evaluating trends.

I’ll try to get to that tomorrow.
