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:
Cases On the Rise
One county in Iowa accounts for 2% of the newly confirmed cases in the US. Buena Vista county in Iowa reported over 430 cases of Coronavirus overnight where two Tyson meat processing plants are located.
Wisconsin saw a big increase overnight too and the highest tally for any one day. The state is 22% higher than expected and accounts for 3% of the cases reported in the US.
Neighboring counties, Racine and Milwaukee, are contributing the most to this increase.
Internationally, we see more cases too. South Africa is seeing a steady increase with the most recent value at 54% above expected. They account for 2% of the cases globally.
South Korea saw the number of new cases nearly double overnight, which is currently 96% above expected. Lockdown restrictions have now been restored.
