The data from AZ is frustrating to the point of being almost unusable. points out all of the moving parts. Check the thread for his chart showing the impact that held over reporting has on the visual. 1 death/day for 30 days does not have the same meaning as 30 in one day

The really frustrating part as well is reporters that are selective on the death chart as well. They seem to always choose a chart that has visually skewed values on the x and y axis, and one that also pushes that dates very close together to give the allusion of a huge increase

I like graphs because they are honest, give correct information, and don't skew the values to create a narrative. There is definitely an increase in deaths, but as you can see in his graphic, not some massive, Armageddon type that the media shows.
