States reported ~43k new cases today, a near record. These numbers are a result of increased testing capturing the rapid spread of the virus across a large swath of the country.

It's important to remember that diagnostic testing only captured a small % of the actual infections in the Northeast outbreak. Though we are setting records for *confirmed cases* — there were almost certainly more total infections at the spring peak than there are right now.

That said, the curve of each region's cumulative chart is telling. Outbreaks began at different times across the US.

You can see the ways that the outbreak has shifted since March in this timeline of cases per million people.

This is the state of things now. (Note that OR, KS, KY LA, PA, NH, and RI did not report any new cases today.)

Nevada had never reported more than 500 cases in a day. Today, the state reported almost 1100. The positive rate and hospitalizations in the state are rising, too.

Georgia also reported a record high in cases at almost 2000. The 7-day average for cases has nearly tripled since late May. Hospitalizations have also gone right back up after falling from May into June.

Florida also reported a record number of cases today—close to 10k. Florida remains one of the few states that does not report how many people are currently hospitalized.

Deaths have continued to fall, even as cases and hospitalizations spike across the South and West. Here's what we do and don't know about the death trends:

Hopefully we've built a herd immunity to the more aggressive strains and that these strains going around now are basically an after shock. Wishful thinking, I know. And I'm not a Covid truther or "open up" advocate. Just wishing and hoping, for everyone's sake.

I actually don't think this is that weird. I think we kind of might have killed a lot of people by putting them on ventilators as a first response. I think we're not doing that anymore and it's saving lives.

If deaths continue to drop amid case spikes, then it's likely it may be herd immunity but I still think we should be cautious and wear masks/wash hands/use hand sanitizers until we see cases dropped. We shall see what happens between now and mid-July.

The peaks from week to week looks stalled. I expect the rise will now happen but hopefully not as extreme as positive tests.

I would fully expect deaths to still fall. Cases nationally were falling 4 to 5 weeks ago. Current deaths reflect cases 4 to 5 weeks in the past.

There is risk but look at this. It is a virus it will come and it will go. Practice what we have learned. It is not about what DJT is not doing (He was a the forfornt stop blaming him, blame ourselves). It is in our hands to take care of ourselves.

How come this chart isn't consistent with your spreadsheet that shows 2500 deaths on June 25 (188,031 -116,031 on June 24)

Re: death rate stats: In addition to lag time & younger folks sick, don’t miss impact of learning in the medical field. saves lives through treatment gains. So, it is a bit like surviving HIV. Also, long term impact on cardio, lungs: unknown.

I doubt this graphs takes into account “deaths with” vs “deaths from”.

That's because deaths are offset by 5-10 days.
