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 about yesterday:
Coronavirus Cases in the US Continue to Rise
The US has reached a record high of newly confirmed cases. The milestone today is the highest number of confirmed cases in one day at 40,000.
What is driving this increase day-over-day? Hospitals, the US Military, the state of Massachusetts, the Federal Bureau of Prisons and the state of California are all contributing to this change. At 39%, the biggest contributor to this trend looks like the Veteran Hospitals. What appears to be happening is that Veteran’s Hospitals, the US Military and Federal Prisons all provided a total number of cases since the outbreak, not a daily figure.
By providing a cumulative number, Ohio is now 13% above normal. Ohio just started testing inmates in two prisons in Pickaway and Marion counties.
Several counties are contributing to this increase, but 72% of the increase is from Pickaway and Marion counties. The increase is led by Pickaway at 41% where over the past 2 days this number represents 2% of the total population in Ohio. (Note: Data is cumulative where we normally would show incremental.)
Los Angeles (LA) County is also up 68% over model and is driving 3% of the newly confirmed cases.
Good news out of Europe, where new confirmed cases in Germany continue to decrease. Yesterday, the country was 18% beneath expected and it was the lowest number of confirmed cases since March 15th.
