Covid-19 Statistics Part V: Flattening the Curve

The numbers:

Difference in number of cases: 487,857 (32% increase)
-1% decrease rate

Difference in mortality: 38,351 (43% increase)
10% increase rate

Difference in recovery: 148,773 (45% increase)
28% increase rate

Total of “unknown” outcomes: 1,391,095
Ratio of mortality-to-total-known-outcomes: 1:5

280,000 mortalities projected from current number of unknown outcomes

We have our first negative percentage rate, appearing in the total number of cases, which is good news. The curve is starting to flatten, though the mortality rate is still persistent, which is unfortunate. Keep doing what you’re doing and the world will get better.

Be careful, stay positive, and as always, follow the CDC guidelines for staying healthy during this trying time.
