Among our values at Outlier, most important are the people we have in our lives, as we are parents and contributing members of the public like you. In addition to taking actions in our local community during the Coronavirus pandemic, we realize that the Outlier platform can bring you daily insights to understand the impact of the epidemic.
In today’s stories, analyzed with automated business analysis, we are reporting more findings based upon data shared by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University (JHU).
Here’s what we found yesterday:
Even though France has been under lockdown since March 15th, the country is still on the incline in the number of cases confirmed. This segment spiked to 11,102, a day-over-day increase of 114%, which is 141% higher than previously reported.
In the US, the Southeast is still a hot spot. Georgia has a lot of confirmed cases. With Root Cause Analysis, Outlier automatically shows that Dougherty and Gwinnett counties are the highest contributors to this increase. The public health emergency is now extended through May 13th in Georgia.
Newly Confirmed Cases Are Trending Down Globally
For some good news, worldwide confirmed cases are trending down. A trend started April 5, where this metric has averaged 6% lower for the past 3 days.
Countries on the mend include the Netherlands. The country saw a day-over-day decrease of 20%, which is 12% lower than expected.
More good news for Asia, the Philippines also sees a decrease in the number of new cases. The country fell from rank 20 to 46 in the last few days.
New York state is starting to see a decrease in the number of confirmed cases. The state decreased to 8,060, a day-over-day decrease of 7%, which is 4% lower.
New York’s decrease is mainly being driven by Westchester, New York, Nassau, Suffolk and Dutchess counties. It’s great to see that New York State is seeing a decline finally.
