Declines in WA, FL, NY, MA, SC, MI, TX, VA
Hello all – Happy Mother’s Day. It’s also my wonderful wife Monique’s birthday, and Fred Astaire’s birthday.
We’re going hiking for a few days, so the next report will be Wednesday or Thursday. I expect current downward trends to continue – we haven’t seen anything anomalous for a while now. The IHME model updated today, and they painstakingly moved a lot of the death data to date of death, so now show peak deaths pack on April 16.
We now have about 19 states that have relaxed restrictions (I looked a few days ago, could be more now). I’m not seeing any pattern differences between states that are opening up and states that remain with full restrictions – that’s good news, but we’ll keep watching carefully.
As always, feel free to send me your questions about my assumptions, methodology, or logistic modeling in general.
