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 out about yesterday:
Parts of Africa See More Cases
Yesterday, we brought up that certain regions in Africa were seeing an increase in cases. Today we are seeing more in the same region in West Africa. Guinea-Bissau has seen a huge increase day over day.
Right beside Guinea-Bissau, Guinea is also 20% above expected.
Brazil is also seeing an uptick in the number of confirmed cases, as the US weighs restricting travel from the country. Yesterday’s data shows that the country is 18% higher than expected and accounts for 8% of the new cases globally.
Back to California
California’s number of confirmed cases is on the rise again. Governor Gavin Newsom is now ordering the closure of state beaches and parks.
Southern California looks to be driving this increase as seen with the Root Cause Analysis feature from Outlier. Yesterday, the Golden State accounted for 9% of all confirmed cases. The City of Los Angeles announced on Monday that any resident in LA County, even those not at the greatest risk from the Coronavirus, can now apply for a test.
France used to be a hotspot for Coronavirus, but the country only reported 2 new cases yesterday and it is 99% below expected. Great news!
