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:
We’ve mentioned that Texas is seeing an uptick in cases, but we hadn’t mentioned Hidalgo County in Texas before. One of the southernmost counties in Texas is seeing an increase in the number of cases confirmed since June 15th. This county now accounts for 2% of the cases in the US confirmed yesterday.
California also is still on the increase in the number of new cases confirmed. Most of the impact recently has been in Southern California, but yesterday in Central California, Stanislaus County is on the rise. Stanislaus County is home to Modesto and its number of confirmed cases is on a strong uptick since July 7th. Yesterday, the county confirmed over 1,300 cases. This means the county accounted for 2% of the newly confirmed cases in the US yesterday.
Internationally, Indonesia is seeing a slight uptick in the number of new cases as well. Yesterday, the country found that over 2,600 people had contracted the virus in one day, which is the highest number of confirmed cases in one day for the country. This increase is 52% higher than expected and now Indonesia accounts for 1% of the cases confirmed globally yesterday. Cases have topped 70,000.
And, in good news, Honduras is trending down for the number of new cases two days in a row. The country is now 31% below expected.
Iran also saw a dip in the number of new cases confirmed yesterday and is 7% below expected.
