Can anyone who follows the CDC tracker explain the anomaly

of them showing almost 200,000 new cases yesterday? I didn't see any of the others anywhere near that. Is it possible they are dumping stuff they hid for Trump in an effort to catch up?

7. CDC site shows right at 195,00 cases for yesterday I think Worldometers showed 162 ish

Last I looked WOM was at 169 for today. One or two days ago they showed 1,800 plus deaths when WOM was about 12 ish.

4. They say that deaths fewer people are dying of Covid recently,

even though the infections have soared. I haven't heard this, but I'm guessing that lower death rate has a lot to do with better treatments. The last figures I saw said that we had 241,000 deaths.

11. yes, Sweden atm, doing some post grad work, I was born in Los Angeles, but grew up in London



Stockholm is back under semi lockdown again, like much of the EU

We have dropped to 50th in the world in terms of cases per million, but 18th (we were at a peak of 6th) in deaths per million, but are dropping there too. We are inverted compare to Denmark, where their cases per million is higher than their deaths per million rankings wise, as they avoided the massive contagion in their elderly care system. Norway is almost dead even (death per million versus cases per million), but far lower than Sweden and even Denmark in both, as they are superb with their test and tracing programmes. They also have an INSAE amount of money to throw at it (and anything). Their combined sovereign wealth funds and other assets (mainly petrol) are flush enough that they could, if they liquidated all over a certain amount of time, make every single Norwegian a US dollar millionaire. The US would need around 331 TRILLION USD in net assets to do the same.

The reason our death rate is so much higher, ranking wise, than our case rate, is that we had the horrid tragedy of our elderly care homes and scattered site elderly care just get eviscerated very early on, that is what drove us so high compared to our neighbours and other nations. 99% of all deaths here from COVID-19 have come from the 50yo and above cohorts. The bottom half of the entire country age-wise (5.06 million people roughly) has had only 31 deaths, no schoolchildren, 2 deaths under 20yo (a 4yo who died 7 months ago and an infant around a month ago, both with massive comorbidites) to date.

We are having a large spike in cases (like most other nations) so we shall have to see how that affects the death rate.

My wife and I are over both 6 months post-infection (we were completely asymptomatic) and still have both solid anti-body counts as well as high t-cell counts (we are still in a large study here at Karolinska Universitetssjukhuset), so that is at least a good thing.

I so hope you and your family and friends are all safe!

10. It has been reported that GA (and likely others) dumped a big update from prev "unreported cases

I haven't had a chance to take a deep dive, but I'd not be surprised.

13. I have suspected Georgia and Floriduh were holding deaths out.

Floridas seemed too uniform like they had an acceptable number. I think Texas dumped some of their backlog today. I have always thought Georgia also was cooking the books.
