The number of new cases of COVID-19 reported is the most important number. Number of deaths will continue to rise because the disease hasn’t run its course with the people who have just been diagnosed.
In Michigan the number of new cases reported is down two days in a row. And my god I had to pull teeth to extract those numbers from graphs. Either my idiotic governor doesn’t want this number made public or nobody in her administration is good at math.
I would give you the numbers but these kinds of posts have turned out to be Concern Troll magnets. The moment I post them I’ll have some idiot screaming DON’T YOU GET IT PEOPLE ARE DYING!!! in the comments. He will then torture my numbers until they confess to whatever he wants.
Besides two days can not reasonably be considered a trend.
I’ll report back on this at the end of the week. The trend will have either firmed up or I will have been proven to be pointlessly optimistic.
