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:
Big Spikes in the States
Last week, we reported on cases being high in Yuma, Arizona and they saw another big spike, 363% over where we’d expect and accounting for 2% of cases nationally. Reports are saying that it only took one week to double in new cases.
New cases in Michigan spiked by over 700%. Yesterday, they accounted for 26% of all confirmed cases in the US.
