Progress in Covid 19 Deaths




DATA SOURCE = https://ourworldindata.org/grapher/total-daily-covid-deaths



The number of people dying from COVID-19 has declined since the second half of April. Because we now have so many data points, I plotted half months rather than 7-day periods as before.

Note that March and May have an extra day in the second half compared to April and June.

I hope that the recent surge in hospitalizations in some US states do not mean a return to higher death counts. Of course, the symptoms can be severe for some survivors. Nevertheless, the death rate is in decline.



We are seeing far more infections compared to European nations, which are now going to work and open for international travel. Resistance to safety recommendations appears high in some crowded areas like beaches in the US.

The European data suggest what could happen for the US if people would voluntarily follow the scientific guidance about quality masks, safe distances, and hand washing. Avoiding close contact with infected persons appears to work--of course, since we do not know who are asymptomatic carriers, precautions remain.
