I found an interesting site. My initial impression is it may be a solid data source.

U.S. Coronavirus Cases

We'll have to see how often it gets maintained (and how accurate it is).
Site doesn't list cases that are recovered. In fact, the John Hopkins site has stopped reporting recovered cases for the US since two days ago. Hard to determine the effectiveness of the US healthcare system without that data.

Chance upon this website, which i think is quite useful. Basically they consolidate covid-19 news from all over the world and also share interesting and funny videos. The global coronavirus live counter is also quite accurate too.



That site seems to be a wrapper for the original John Hopkins site here:

I just crosschecked the above site (54867/782/378) with the John Hopkins site (55041/790/348) for US cases/deaths/recovered. Wonder why the discrepancy.

In any case, here is a plot of US deaths and recoveries. The trend from Mar 16 to present shows the rate of deaths outpacing that of recoveries, which indicates a dysfunctioning of healthcare systems.

Also, we know that testing is lagging and even might never catchup to the infection rate. So while the plot shows the US infection rate hitting 10 million Americans by Apr 15, social distancing should move that out a bit, how much to be determined by testing. The death rate projection of 10 million dead by the start of May, should be delayed some by the social distancing in place now.

One question not asked is have they figured in the 14 day stay on a ventilator into the needs estimates? There are reports from Italy of 20-day stays.

It looks like most (or a lot) of these maps are based on the Johns Hopkins data.

Here is another nice one that is all based on open source components and is highly customizable. You will see the author's discalaimer about an issue in the Johns Hopkins data in the lower right as it opens.

The Covid-19 death rate globally is about 4.5%. In China, 4.0%. In the US only 1.5%. Our recovery rate is low but is getting better...slowly. Hammering those trying to help won't help.

"Anyone who wants a test can get a test." This article is a flat out lie. That's not what he said. Science indeed.

Don't try to pull a Trump and deny something was said when the quote is readily available on multiple outlets and the actual video of him saying it is available on YOUTUBE.

“Anybody that wants a test can get a test. That’s what the bottom line is,” Trump told reporters March 6 during a visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta.
