We were turning a corner, led mostly by the Northeast (especially NY and NJ, but for sure also MA) getting the case counts down. Unfortunately far too many states currently have their case numbers going up, and we're actually starting to see as many cases as we were before but with the epicenters being in the South, Southwest, and California. California and Texas both had over 5000 new cases yesterday and they're going to head down different paths:harbo wrote: ↑Mon Jun 22, 2020 9:40 pmhttps://ourworldindata.org/grapher/covi ... RI~TTO~USA
The struggle continues. We are s.l.o.w.l.y making headway as this interactive graphic shows us making slow progress with our new cases doubling about every seven days. Only Brazil, Russia, India and Mexico seem to be in similar or worse shape among the larger counties around the world.
Newsom announced he wants mandatory masks in California.
Abbott said he needs another month of data before he can make a decision, despite admitting things aren't going well.
It's hard to track the country as whole because of how different the various areas are doing and handling it all. I'm hoping we don't see more terrible numbers on the death side...but those numbers tend to run behind cases by 2-3 weeks. And AZ (for instance) is approaching 90% ICU capacity after being in the 70s 2 weeks ago.
7 day moving average is climbing quickly again.
