Mapping the spread of the coronavirus in the U.S. and worldwide

Mapping the spread of the coronavirus in the
U.S. and worldwide

.With their far-reaching and Pulitzer Prize-winning resources, the Washington Post is keeping a database of the number of confirmed coronavirus cases and deaths from the virus.  This way Conservatives can finally accurately track their leaders ability to contain the spread of the virus and mitigate the number of deaths (of which there were already over 108.

 

The number of reported cases of covid-19 continues to rise in the United States, where testing was slow to begin. The disease, caused by a new coronavirus, has been confirmed in every state.

Confirmed cases 7,323

   The best site for actual information about Covi-19 spread is via John Hopkins:   https://www.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6   

 

    For those that want disinformation and lies, check out the far right sites ( donald's favorites) that are full of bs.  they  are pushing donald's gaslight message etc.     People who go down that road may be blind (unable to read) or just plain stupid.    Try looking up the history using Wikipedia.  

 

   donald et al continue to spew nonsense, meanwhile the John Hopkins group has data going back to 1 Jan 2020

Mapping the spread of the coronavirus in the U.S. and worldwide

 

We should assume the numbers we see each day represent 14% of the actual cases.

   Until test kits are available to all professionals who are actually qualified to perform the testing,  I will remain a pessimist.    If a state wants to keep their numbers low:   then keep the availability of test kits low.    https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/18/us/coronavirus-florida-desantis.html

 

    Magically the State of TX just reported that it could double the number of test kits available.   Expect the numbers to increase as testing becomes considered a good thing in all States.

Yep,  the limited availability of test kits and the requirements that have to be met for a person to qualify for testing have skewed the numbers showing how many people are infected with this virus.  The first person to test positive in my town was a prominent lawyer. He stated later that you have to fight to be tested, that he insisted on a CT scan of his lungs. The CT scan  and it's results are what qualified him to actually be tested for the virus, without the scan he would not have been tested.  His concern is that may people of a lower economic and social status simply would not have been tested and counted in the number of people with the Covid-19 virus.  I think he is right. WE need millions of test kits available and the criteria for who is tested needs to be expanded to cover many more people.

To date the numbers are:103,945 Covid-19 tests given.

 

Of those 11,723 were infected.

 

89,197 not infected

 

3,025 are awaiting results

 

And 160 are dead

 

Want more, my eyes say It ain't happening from me.

Looks like (11,723/103,945=) 11.3% of the population MIGHT be infected - hopefully lower, as testing is concentrated in Urban areas and simple separation out here in the boonies SHOULD lower the infection rate... EXCEPT for the fact ToadPOTUS lied about the danger for 63 days, and GOPerGovs and Mayors were slow to ignore tRumps LIES so large gatherings continued, like Mardi Gras and Spring Break were allowed to happen. 

 

All that "laisse le bon temp roule" may have infected enough party goers to carry the Covid19 all thru "flyover country", which is home to a lot of people who practice Toadworship at the expense of being informed.

 

Seems all those greedheads who were going to vote for Toad just because they liked the look of their 401k's MIGHT be wondering  if they should reconsider and NOT ignore the obvious fact he's a psychopath with the emotional and intellectual development of a 6 year-old.


The fact the confidence Toad instills in savvy investors was such that every dime of gain since Jan 2017 has been errased and the Covid19 is spreading much faster in the US than it is in countries with adult supervision in Government should also cost donny a lot of votes among indies and diehard BernieBros.

Think I'll be ignoring their numbers for awhile, not updated with sufficient frequency.

 

My go to's are Johns Hopkins and https://ncov2019.live/data

 

For more accurate numbers. 
ncov is a data scraper for feeds.and does list 147/195 countries in the world.

 

When you check your state numbers and their off, I tend to fall back on more accurate numbers, with one recovery.

Good information; thank you!

 

What we need is a source that shows the number of tests provided AND the number of those waiting for tests that have been noted to be in the millions.

 

Thanks for your good information Frozenoem!!!

The only suggestion I might have as to number of test kits out, and number actually used on patients, would be checking on Individual states usage.

 

CDC don't run the tests only the states do, and then it's a matter of the individual hospitals in those states.

 

want a breadcrumb - Memorial Hermann in Houston today Wednesday ran 387. Or at least I think they did, slightly bleary eyed at this stage.

 

Don't ask me Which Memorial Hermann  though🤣, that came from scraping or twitter feed from them.

 

The CDC reported on 8 tests being conducted Wednesday period. There is a slight discrepancy between both reports.CDC only updates between the hours of 8-4 Mon- Fri, at T's request I think? Happiness in numbers for the his masses.

 

But, if I said what I was thinking I'd be cussing and banned. Check out John Hopkins and follow the links from there, believe I mentioned them recently somewhere on the boards.

 

Think I've been on phone to long vs at computer with screen I can actually see.

 

And 3 days pending results aren't reported.

 

Feeds too many to check, and hours to go before I sleep.

 

Or try this link

Because of tRump not planning for this and only reacting to it, we are way behind. There aren't enough test kits to rapidly identify everyone with this virus and because of this many will be infected, the numbers are starting to multiply rapidly. There is one person who tested positive to the virus in my town today and there were two more who were tested awaiting results. We knew it was coming but we aren't any more prepared than other towns are, thanks to tRump not getting test kits early.

 

It's in all states now and the numbers are really increasing rapidly. I urge everyone to be safe and cautious.

He had to remove any put in place under Obama administration like early response to pandemics.

 

If he hadn't killed the research by Bill Gates and pandemic response in 2017 before taking office - yeah, we'd be better off as a country and wouldn't be 12-18 months away from a possible for public release vaccine.

 

I know in my guit that with the first mumbling of a virus in China and Wuhan, live cultures would have been getting tested by bio research type here now, and we'd be closer to that 12 mnth testing period for finding safe vaccine for population, and wouldn't be dealing with all these BS maneuvers by the GOP and him. 

 

Unless your wealthy step to back of the bus on getting safe vaccine. Gotta be the right type person - rich.Billionaires first.🤬

 

Gotta leave before I really say what I'm thinking.

Many appreciate your wise insight, Frozen.  Thank you.  There ARE a lot of feeds to check as you said, still MILLIONS of tests are needed....we need to protect our most vulnerable!  Or as Fox say's, see if you can hold your breath for 10 seconds.... LOL!

 

Thanks again....
