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:
Unexpected Increases in Countries
Globally there is more testing happening and we see an increase in the number of newly confirmed cases, but the unexpected growth is not in countries that you might expect.
Outlier’s Root Cause Analysis feature shows that Brazil, India and Columbia are contributing the most to this increase in case count globally.
Increase in States
Since July 2nd, the “Show Me” state of Missouri has seen an increase in the number of newly confirmed cases. This recent increase is 54% above expected and accounts for 2% of the cases confirmed in the US yesterday.
The increase is largely being driven by Kansas City and St. Louis counties.
Indiana is trending up as well. Since July 3rd, the Hoosier State has seen an increase in the number of confirmed cases. Currently, the state is 13% above expected.
Marion, Hamilton and Monroe counties are contributing the most to the increase.
Trending Down in Arizona
Great news for Arizona and Maricopa County. This county had been a hot spot for newly confirmed cases. The home of Phoenix is trending down now since July 13th. Their current decline is 8% below expected and the county only accounts for 2% of the newly confirmed cases in the United States yesterday.
