COVID19 WAVEWATCHER 2020-05-23 DATA REVIEW

May 25, 2020 — Wes Monceaux

Here are the charts based on #covid19 data from 2020-05-23.

I have changed up the charts to use the JHU data. Additionally, the case and death rates are 14-day averages. I feel this will provide the best indication of if things are truly moving in a positive or negative direction.

Good news is that it looks like every state has increased their testing rates.


The new chart contains the reported rate (green dots) of testing per 100,000 people in a state/region. The red dots represent the rate of new cases averaged over the previous 14 days. Similarly, the black dots represent the rate of deaths averaged over the previous 14 days.

While the 14-day averages will create some lag in signal, it will make any up or down trends be more representative. What we would like to see is a large rate of testing with low rates of new cases and deaths.

States with fewer than 25k cases

While the United States, overall, appears to have a decrease in the rate of new cases, I thought it would be interesting to look at the states that have fewer numbers of cases than those of New York, New Jersey, etc. The list of states falling into this category can be found here.
