2:00PM Water Cooler 5/29/2020

By Lambert Strether of Corrente. “Well, it’s been a quiet week in Lake Wobegone….” * * * Patient readers, I got wrapped round the axel on COVID19. I have to add more material on events in Minneapolis. –Lambert UPDATE All done! #COVID19 At reader request, I’ve added this daily chart. The data is the John Hopkins CSSE data. Here is the site. Today I thought I would look at Southeast Asia: South Korea, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, and the Philippines: The vertical scale is...

By Lambert Strether of Corrente. #COVID19 At reader request, I’ve added this daily chart. The data is the John Hopkins CSSE data. Here is the site. Today I thought I would look at international data. Brazil, the United Kingdom. Sweden, China: The vertical scale is scaled to the highlight, Brazil, and so the league leader, the United States, is not visible, but the differences between other states that otherwise are all jammed together at the bottom of the chart are now visible. While Brazil...

By Lambert Strether of Corrente. #COVID19 At reader request, I’ve added this daily chart. The data is the John Hopkins CSSE data. Here is the site. Today I thought I would add several charts: The vertical scale is expanded so New York’s enormous debacle is cut out, but the differences between other states that otherwise are all jammed together at the bottom of the chart are now visible: I picked California, Texas, Florida, and Arkansas (for the pool cluster). California’s signal was, I...

By Lambert Strether of Corrente. #COVID19 At reader request, I’ve added this daily chart. The data is the John Hopkins CSSE data. Here is the site. The vertical scale is expanded so New York’s enormous curve is cut out, but the differences between other states that otherwise are all jammed together at the bottom of the chart are now visible: Michigan, Wisonsin, Georgia, and Texas. “The Coronavirus Is Deadliest Where Democrats Live” [New York Times].

By Lambert Strether of Corrente. #COVID19 At reader request, I’ve added this daily chart: The data is the John Hopkins CSSE data. Here is the site. I have changed to a linear scale as a default for US States and territories (see below). At some point, the enormous discrepancy between the course of the pandemic in New York and its course in every other state is going to have to be addressed and explained. We do have a slow acceleration in states like California and Illinois, which I suppose...

By Lambert Strether of Corrente. #COVID19 At reader request, I’ve added this daily chart: The data is the John Hopkins CSSE data. Here is the site. I have changed to a linear scale as a default for US States and territories (see below). * * * I changed the default from log to linear because of this post in today’s Links: “The public do not understand logarithmic graphs used to portray COVID-19“: [W}e find that the group who read the information on a logarithmic scale has a much lower level...

By Lambert Strether of Corrente. #COVID19 At reader request, I’ve added this daily chart: The data is the John Hopkins CSSE data. Here is the site. I have changed to a logarithmic scale for US States and territories.

By Lambert Strether of Corrente. #COVID19 At reader request, I’ve added this daily chart: The data is the John Hopkins CSSE data. Here is the site. I have changed to a logarithmic scale for US States and territories. Here is the state COVID cases by day in linear form. If I were the governoir of Florida (or Georgia) I might indeed take the view that “one of these things is not like the others,” especially if I were business-oriented. The nest ten days to two weeks will tell. Readers? “As...

By Lambert Strether of Corrente. Patient readers, at Rev Kev’s suggestion, I redid the format of the Google snippet. The genre change makes the snippet much more fun to write. Thoughts? –lambert #COVID19 At reader request, I’ve added this daily chart: The data is the John Hopkins CSSE data. Here is the site. I have changed to a logarithmic scale for US States and territories. Alert reader Richard played around with the chart and came up with the anomaly above. Looks like a data error to me,...

By Lambert Strether of Corrente. #COVID19 At reader request, I’ve added this daily chart: The data is the John Hopkins CSSE data. Here is the site. I have changed to a logarithmic scale for US States and territories. I though I’d look at countries. The United States is in good company: Brazil, Russia, India (three of four BRICs — Hi, Goldman Sacsh [waves]), Chile, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, and of course, us. * * * See Vice, “How to Read the Coronavirus Graphs“: Quantities that grow exponentially,...
