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 recently:
Coronavirus Numbers Rise with Reopenings and Increased Testing
Texas recently opened up the state, as well as increased testing, and is now seeing a record high in the number of counties that are reporting new cases in a day. Over 100 counties of the 254 counties in Texas are reporting cases. That’s 42% of the counties in Texas with a Coronavirus confirmed case yesterday.
Maryland is seeing an influx of cases and reported 9% of the new cases yesterday from the US, four days after reopening the state. The state is 29% higher than expected.
Prince George (40%) and Montgomery (37%) counties are the primary drivers of this increase.
Increases Exist Internationally Too
Egypt has an increasing number of newly confirmed cases after a night curfew and other restrictions were eased. The country observed new confirmed cases 34% higher than expected.
Recent reporting in Tajikistan indicates a step-change in the number of newly confirmed cases for the country.
India has spiked to the largest amount of confirmed cases ever reported there in a day. The country observed new cases that are 14% higher than expected and accounts for 6% of the world’s cases reported yesterday.
There’s No Place Like Home
Great news for Kansas as it moves into its Phase 2 reopening plan. Their number of confirmed cases is on the decline. The state opened up earlier this month and is reporting 67% less cases than expected.
This decline is led by Finney, Seward, and Ford counties.
