It doesn’t stop there. Mortalities per week had a precipitous drop of 1065 per day from last week. This drops the US to 8th in the world of mortalities vs population.
The potential bad news, new case saw a 100%** increase from last week, 2015,116 versus 440,414 We 2-14-2021.Looking at the last three weeks, this is out of the margin. Perhaps reporting was slow. We see a steady decline from WE 1-1 then a dramatic drop last week to a ridiculous spike this week. Doesn’t look right. Let’s see how the next two to three weeks pan out.
** Correction: Cases dropped 210,851 last week 38% drop.
