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:
There’s a spike in new cases for Hudson, NJ. While cases had been trending down, suddenly yesterday the county had its highest new daily case count yet. While it’s just one county in one state, it accounted for 3% of all new cases in the US.
Cases are up in Kansas, in fact, the State is seeing a 19% increase over expected which seems due to more testing.
Cases are also up in Iowa. The curve had flattened, but new cases are now increasing at a faster rate. The state is 6% over expected and accounts for 2% of the newly confirmed cases across the US. The increase is driven largely by Polk, Woodbury and Wapello counties which may be due to the reopening meat plants.
Nebraska is trending up for the number of newly confirmed cases at 40% above expected as testing in the state is on the rise. The Cornhusker State accounted for 2% of confirmed cases yesterday.
And, in good news. Poland is flattening the curve and is 13% below expected.
