again, here's the data. from GDH website. as of yesterday.xtrawildcat wrote: ↑June 30th, 2020, 5:02 pmDo you understand the lag time in the Georgia Department of Health new case data or not.
You can study the numbers and figure it out yourself if you don't beleive the AJC. And the AJC Covid data page lists both sets of numbers. Use the GDH website numbers if you like. They also explain the 14 day delay before numbers are accurate.
But it is a fact Georgia case numbers have more than doubled in the last week and the number of deaths is a lagging indicator.
what makes you think I don't GET the lag issue? it's CLEARLY identified in the graphs. there is the VERIFIED data 'in bold' and there is the 'yet to be verified' data that's 'translucent'. it's all 'there'. it's labeled as the '14 day window' right there on the chart for heaven's sake.
I SEE the verified data and also the potential 'future trend' of things to come. Have been watching this site for a long time now.
fact, here's the FIRST graph I shared with all... from well over a month ago
I understand the lag time numbers. I am wondering if YOU yourself do. it's such a simple concept.
so, again, what do we SEE? first peak. then testing ramps up. we test more. we are testing more. that is a clear driving factor of more cases being reported, observed. along with outcomes of riots/peaceful protest gatherings. but what's KEY is that deaths ARE on the decline.
it's a FACT that total deaths are going up. statistically total deaths just can not EVER go down. RATES however can and ARE. So the numbers clearly indicate.
agree? disagree? what do those charts say to you about death RATES as a reality. and as a function of total tests? perhaps, you look at the charts and are ASTOUNDED that clearly there are so man y more deaths than reported cases? (sarcasm clearly) did you take note not of the shape/amplitude of the relative graphs but also the scale of the y-axis? (again, sarcasm). but when you think I don't 'get the data' tell me. what am I not getting that you 'clearly are'.
I understand the numbers. what are YOU missing? tell me. enlighten me. 'learn' me.
here's a few interesting points to also consider: when was George Floyd killed/murdered? when did protest gatherings start/take place (dates)?
George Floyd died on May 25. protests started right after. then Rayshard Brooks was shot (atlanta). keep tabs on 'that' date and the multi-week lag yet to show up on the chart.
