Posted on 05/22/2020 8:30:03 PM PDT by CheshireTheCat
The main takeaway from the massive disparities in death rates so far is their regional patterns. Six months into the global coronavirus pandemic, and more than two months into the widespread lockdowns of American public life, we have lots and lots of data. But what have we learned? The hard data we have today remains flawed, and it can tell us a lot more about the where of the pandemic than the why. But just knowing the where is a start. One of the chief lessons we can take is the difficulty of comparing very different regions of the world. America isnt South Korea or New Zealand, and never could have been. Another is quite how uniquely bad the situation in the New York metro area has been...

Four of the top five areas are in the US, specifically the Northeast.
Why? JFK, Newark, and Logan?
SEIU union workers in fecally-contaminated old folks homes, rest homes, hospices, senior citizen locked up retirement homes.
Hand-to-waste-to-hand-to-mouth/eye/throat. Hours or days in dirty sheets, diapers , seats, and tables.
Need the executive summary.
The fact that none of these regions are showing 50 times over the other , when we are told lock-down and masks reduced deaths by 1/50th . For this to be the case regions with no Lock-downs should be 50 times higher,,and we don't see that .., This should be the takeaway.
What we are supposed to have learned: fiat unconstitutional laws made by any governor are just that—unconstitutional. We have learned nothing.
And add the subway.
Or a biological weapon designed to target certain genetic characteristics.
Looking more likely all the time.
Targeting the retirees/pensioners?
Dont forget the transfer of COVID19 patients into the nursing homes. Havent looked at state policies on COVID19 patients into nursing homes, but off the top of my head - NY, NJ, PA, MI, VA
Breakthrough Drug: Ivermectin Shows 'Astounding' Results Against Coronavirus
What are the ingredients in Tri Heart plus?
Tri-Heart Plus contains two active ingredients: ivermectin, which interferes with the parasite's nerve transmission, causing paralysis and death of the immature heartworms (larvae), and Pyrantel pamoate, which also interferes with the parasite's nerve transmission, causes paralysis and death of intestinal worms.
Works for me...
Here is my latest installment of the updated tracking of size- and time-adjusted COVID-19 deaths at the state and national level. For those new to the data, I standardize each municipality's cumulative COVID-19 fatality count per GitHub by its population, then multiply the resulting quotient by the US' population of 329MM to put everyone on a common/US scale. I then index each municipality's time-series to Day 1, where their size-adjusted fatality count is right before it breaches 1,000 people. This corrects for what I call the "Golf Problem" where broadcasts of the Masters etc have to show not only each golfer's score, but which hole they're at. I also list the Day 1 date and the population for reference. I've posted the history back to Day 1 on my About page.
Note for the US as nation, that Day 1 is March 25, which means Day 58 is May 21 for that row of data. You can do the math for the other municipalities to find out what Day XX means for them in calendar times; as a general rule, the last actual data point is the freshest date, but on a Golf timeline it gives each municipality's score as of the "58th hole."
The sort order is Day 58 for the international table. For the states' data, I sort by Day 51 which generally keeps the relative ranking steady for later days, most notably for the states with higher than national fatality totals.
The relative ranking at the international level hasn't changed in weeks - the last change was Sweden eclipsing Ireland. For what it's worth, I disagree with the NR article's author in mixing and matching country and US city rankings; it is an apples-to-oranges assessment as the municipality level isn't the same. That is, Stockholm is to Sweden what NY is the the US as London is to the UK. Comparing NY to Sweden is bad analysis, but I've come to expect as much over the past few months.
Stateside, for Day 58 the ranking of municipalities adjusted fatalities higher than the US as a whole remains unchanged over the past few weeks: New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, District of Columbia, Louisiana, and Michigan, respectively. Rhode Island, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Illinois and Delaware are the next hottest respectively on the basis of Day 52.
Pray for everyone impacted: the dead, the infected, and the unemployed. And let's open up the country.
|Country||Date of Day 1=day priot to hitting 1,000+ population-adjusted deaths||Population||Day 52||Day 53||Day 54||Day 55||Day 56||Day 57||Day 58||Day 59||Day 60||Day 61|
|Municipality||Date of Day 1 = day prior to breaching size-adj 1,000 COVID19 fatalities||Population||Day 52||Day 53||Day 54||Day 55||Day 56||Day 57||Day 58||Day 59||Day 60||Day 61|
|District of Columbia||3/24/20||672,228||175,508||180,410||183,842||187,764||192,176||196,098||199,530||201,981||204,922||-|
Thanks for the ping. The article on regional variation is very compelling with the available data. Also thanks for your work.
22 May: Conservative Review: The CDC confirms remarkably low coronavirus death rate. Where is the media?
by Daniel Horowitz
Most people are more likely to wind up six feet under because of almost anything else under the sun other than COVID-19...
We destroyed our entire country and suspended democracy all for a lie, and these people perpetrated the unscientific degree of panic. Will they ever admit the grave consequences of their error?
Stay away from the Republic of San Marino, try the Faeroe Islands instead.
In any country where millions of functional illiterates and innumerates can vote, public policy is hijacked by junk science. We are no exception.
I have surmised
Should Not be
On the contrary, weve learned a lot. People will tolerate being arbitrarily deprived of their rights.
It looks to me like the the virus was spread intentionally to areas the Chinese and Iranians thought would cause the most damage... or to areas like Italy - areas the Chinese felt should belong to them at some future date.
Don’t look to the fraudulent leftist media for any Truth - that is a path of Folly.
Simply TRUST THEM TO LIE TO FURTHER THEIR POISONOUS AGENDA.
