Up 40 per day from last week. Deaths/day WE 2-06, 3,433. An increase of 290/day. Six states still account for 26.826% of cases and 33% of deaths: NY, NJ, CT, CA, MA, WA. TX and FL 4,258,611 17% of cases and 66,928 deaths, 16%. It is the 4th leading cause of death in the US. Death rate versus known cases, US infection rate, 2.0361%, mortality rate, .1265%. States with the biggest increase over 10% from previous week: IN,TN and DE. These three account for an increase of 3,120 mortalities. US accounts for 26.259% of known cases and 20,797% of mortalities, worldwide. Comparison to other countries mortalities to population: England .1682%, Italy .1510%, Bosnia .1447%, Mexico, .1334%, Spain .1313%, Peru .1290%, US .1265% France .1204%, Brazil .1069%, Columbia .1106%.. Sweden that didn’t shut down .1176%. Of the developed countries, Australia is holding steady with no new mortalities reported at 908. They’ve lost one person since qw-11-29-2020. These numbers come from the CDC and John Hopkins.
US recovery rate of those testing positive is 98.34%.
There is some good news, to a degree: NY, CA had a drop of 2% new cases per week, FL, 1% and TX stayed level.
It doesn’t stop there. Reported new cases keep dropping dramatically each week 205,298 this week, 176,724 last week 337,654 before that and 206,038 We 1-10-2021. Sadly that isn’t the case with mortalities. There has been a steady increase since WE 1-24 from 3,056 to current 3,435/day. Statistics would dictate that as new reported cases keep dropping the mortality rate should follow. Only time will tell.
With just under 30million doses injected or less than 1% of the US population, I can’t see that affecting the drop in new cases.
