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 from over the weekend:
New Cases Trending Up Globally
Kuwait now has 1% of the newly reported cases. They are 164% over expected with this recent increase.
Bangladesh too now has 1% of the newly reported cases. They are 9% over expected with this recent increase.
South Africa is seeing an increase in confirmed cases. The country is 16% higher than expected. According to news reports, Cape Town and the surrounding Western Cape province seem to be the hotspots.
Egypt continues to see an increase in the number of new cases. This new trend is 22% over expected for the past month and a 13% increase over expected for yesterday. Cases spiked after restrictions were relaxed.
Sudan and Cameroon show an increase in the number of new cases. Both move up in rank from 66 to 41 and 102 to 35 in rank, respectively.
US Cases Continue to Drop
The US is down in the number of confirmed cases. The States account for 77% of the world’s new cases reported on Sunday and are 7% below expected. Some states are starting to re-open.
This recent drop in new confirmed cases is largely driven by reduced cases in Illinois, followed by Massachusetts and New Jersey.
More good news! Minnesota is seeing a reduction in the number of newly confirmed cases as well. The Land of 10,000 lakes is now 19% below expected and has 2% of the confirmed cases for the last day.
