I wonder why they scale the states differently regarding the excess deaths? Looking quickly, it appears all states have about the same relative spikes but, when you look at the scaling to the left, it changes.....weird

Gosh NYC is a nightmare....ugh

I guess they just normalized the different amplitudes of the "oscillation"?
Same waveforms, in phase though, following a common dynamic--
I agree 1:1 scale would also be interesting to compare.

Looks like LA county is making a push to discharge as many patients as they can to make room...
Lots of elder people going back to nursing homes most likely....

Hope everything works out... Sucks that yesterday or day before  the FDA released a warning of sorts voicing concerns on reliability of pcr tests. Mainly that they worry the tests aren't catching positives....
What a mess..

That's quite common in infographics. Another way statistics get misused every day...

This looks like another example of excessive and unnecessary use of US police force to me:

Are they so fearful and fragile or is it something else?

Was posted before, I believe. Looks like an internal turf war to me.

What's important, is that she was asked to manipulate Covid numbers. Tells you about the trustworthiness of your government.

It will be hard to prove, but with this kind of retaliation the gov proves they must have a beef with their ex-employee.

The system she allegedly misused, was "protected" by one password for all users. I've also been told the max pw length was 8 characters. There must be a lot of idiots in the group that developed this emergency system...

So they accuse her based on the ip that was used to post?

Another proof of sheer idiocy?

Hey, it was a great thanksgiving, and now merry xmas. The new hyper-contagious strain should help things along, and when Biden's being inaugurated we can also celebrate the record covid death rates. Maybe by summertime those of us still alive can rejoice in herd immunity.

I tend to discount the doom and gloom mainstream news and (dark winter) political messaging. I may be wrong, but that wouldn't be the first time.

Good luck and I hope you can imagine a better future.

Well, here is the future.

But I do have hope, now that the vaccine is stumbling out and there is new leadership with at least a partial national mask mandate, that this is the nadir of our pandemic.
