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 recently:
Tennessee moved up to 2nd in the number of new cases in the US, as they hit a record high of 1,777 new cases yesterday. Arizona similarly moved from 29th to 6th, as they hit their highest ever day with 1,135 cases. Oklahoma went the opposite way and moved from 15th to 33rd, dropping back to 164 new cases after a one-day spike of 495.
The state of Tennessee also hit another record with its highest ever day of new cases at 157% higher than where we would have expected based on what had been a relatively flat curve.
Lake, Shelby, Davidson, and Hamilton counties were the largest contributors to that change, as each saw their highest days ever.
Ups and Downs Internationally Too
Pakistan is seeing an increase in their case count. Currently, the country is 27% over expected and accounts for 3% of the cases confirmed yesterday globally. The Prime Minister has rejected calls for a complete lockdown.
Great news for Quebec! The Canadian province has seen a reduction in the number of new cases confirmed in the last several weeks. Most recently the decrease is 20% lower than expected.
DC Currently Sees a Decrease in New Cases
The District of Columbia continues to reduce the number of new cases daily. The most recent downward trend is 45% below expected based on the previous upward trend, and their cases account for just 0.1% of total new cases in the US.
