COVID-19 day 135 : 📈 1,831,821 cases; 106,180 deaths : 03 June 2020

This is a "just the numbers" edition

It’s day 135 since the first case of coronavirus disease was announced in the United States. There has been a marked increase in reported deaths, both in daily and seven-day average reports (Johns Hopkins dashboard).

🦠WednesdayJohns Hopkins reported 1,831,821 (1,831,821) cases and 106,180 (106,180) deaths, and increase of 1.08% (1.13%) and 0.94% (1.17%), respectively, since Tuesday (Monday). A week ago, the daily numbers increased by 1.09% and 1.52%, respectively.

  • The seven-day average: 19,043 (18,864) cases and 1,266 (1,330) deaths 

  • Percent of cases leading to death: 5.79 (5.80).

  • Today’s case rate is 559.37 per 100,000; the death rate, 32.38 per 100,000.

  • One week ago, the case rate was 513.34 per 100,000; the death rate, 30.34 per 100,000.

Note: numbers in (.) are from the prior day and are provided for context. I include the seven-day average because dailies vary so much in the course of a week, particularly over a weekend.

1, Case count; 2, What you can do and resources

⓵ Case count

There is a lag between being contagious and showing symptoms, between having a test and getting its results. There is also a lag in reports of cases and deaths making their way into daily results; this lag is visible in predictable declines for both in weekend reports.

🇺🇸 03 June 

  • CDC: 1,827,42 (24,955 new) cases and 106,202 (1,045) deaths

  • Johns Hopkins*: 1,851,520 (1,831,821) cases and 107,175 (106,180) deaths

  • State data*:  1,843,315 (1,823,647) identified cases and 101,192 (100,200) deaths 

  • Total tested (US, Johns Hopkins): 18,214,950 (17,757,838)
    Take with a grain of salt. The CDC and at least 11 other states have begun combining the number of tests for active infections with the number of antibody tests, which boosts the total number of tests and thus drops the percentage who test positive.

The virus was not created in a lab and the weight of evidence is it was not released intentionally. Although early reports tied the outbreak to a seafood (“wet”) market in Wuhan, China, analyses of genomic data in January suggested that the virus might have developed elsewhere.
