Florida cases highest since pandemic began, deaths unexplainably dipped to lowest since beginning

Last edited Wed Aug 18, 2021, 07:40 PM - Edit history (1)

What's the deal here? I don't see any other states with this pattern - what gives? I assume DeSantis is behind this, but I doubt monoclonal antibodies are helping this much?





Link to data: https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/usa/florida/

Didn't realize that criticizing DeSantis would upset people here.

Edit: I updated graphs to make it more clear and changed title.

15% of all new cases in USA

0.8% of all new deaths in USA

Odd.

4. They're not reporting deaths . Every day on Worldometers they're the only state with new

cases in the 20,000's and 4 deaths one day, 7 the next . Every other state with mid to high numbers has deaths in the double, triple digits.

5. Deaths lag reported cases by 1-2 weeks.

Wait a week or two, see whether those numbers increase.

All the other states are following the expected pattern - except one. Surprise! It's FL.

10. The deaths in Fl are going up.

Worldometer might have trouble locating FL data.

"The pandemic has reached another crisis stage. The number of new infections in Florida continues its record-breaking spike, with an average last week of more than 21,600 per day, the third consecutive weekly record. Deaths also spiked recently, and Florida had 15,441 COVID-19 patients in the hospital Friday, the highest level of hospitalizations since the start of the pandemic."

16. I think you're right

Been following too, and Florida has been spiking for a good month, their deaths are certainly spiking now too.

I think the data is getting missed. But I wouldn't put it past DeSantis to just outright cover up the data.

20. My guess there is delay in reporting.

They have record numbers of infections and hospitalizations. Somehow I doubt deaths are going to plummet.

23. Almost 16,000 hospitalizations

It's safe to say a high percentage of those 16,000 people are going to die. Whether that's 25% or 50% I don't know.

9. Deaths lag cases by several weeks.

If your diagnosed Aug 1, hospitalized 5th, die 10 days later, Aug 15th. Then a couple of weeks to process the death certificate. Even just 1 week and itís Aug 21st before the case counted as a death.
That July 5th dip in cases is what drove the Aug 4th dip in deaths.

Using active cases as a measurement is an odd choice. How would you know when they are resolved? Most of the graphs Iíve seen use new cases.

12. New cases and active cases track

They were heading up following the recent spike over the past several weeks, then suddenly the cases started dipping for no reason whatsoever. Please go look for yourself before doubting what's different than every other state that I've looked at.

13. Using the google graphs, it seems deaths are not reported every day,

so one days is listed as "0" while the next is listed as "239", making the average between those two numbers. Perhaps there were several days in a row of "0" being reported?

It's not following what we'd expect.

15. Other states are following the same general pattern.

I picked a couple states on Worldometer, Arizona and New Jersey, to see their patterns and they generally follow the FL pattern.

NJ is rising and AZ is flat.

FL dropped from 129 cases Aug 5th to 7 yesterday. Now THAT is a drop.

29. You seem to imply there is a CT behind this.

What is it? If the numbers are being falsified (forget for a minute that Democrats control many of the counties where the health departments giving the numbers) then why aren't the total cases being falsified also?

30. Thus the use of question marks

It seems odd to me, that's all.

I read an article that described how data was not being reported, or was delayed due to interference, I figured others might have some additional information on this. It's really odd. The only explanation I could come up with is the report that they're using monoclonal antibodies on people early in the process as Rachel had pushed many, many times on her show. Could that be the explanation?

32. I think the explanation is this is not a one size fits all disease.

It affects different ages and different health groups differently. Every state has different demographics and cultures. So you are going to see different things happening.

33. But the sudden drop from 100+ deaths on average 1/10th of that is odd

It's a statistical anomaly I'm raising.

FL cases have been running at least 15% of all cases in the USA on average for weeks.

FL deaths were skyrocketing - as expected following the spike in cases. Now they're 0.8% of all deaths in the USA.

15% of new cases.

0.8% on new deaths.

Daily cases - highest since pandemic began:



Daily deaths - tracked new cases, then suddenly fell to lowest since pandemic began:



Not odd to you?

Most deaths last winter were among the elderly. With 90 percent of the elderly vaccinated you would expect far fewer deaths.

It seems many states are holding or not reporting data in a timely manner.

Perhaps FL will to a "death dump" at some point in the future?

34. sh*it in, sh*t out -- a lot of the data is just very raw and inconsistent

50 states counting 50 different ways, divided into however many counties and hospitals and doctors and coroners also counting things different ways. Oh and throw into that they're reporting at different intervals, mis-counting and mis-entering some data.

All that happens _before_ the chicanery, and I'm sure you can guess there is plenty of that in DeSantis-land because heaven forbid he just admit that vaccinations and masks are the way out of this.

I only use these numbers to get a general ballpark of where things are. It's not indicative for instance, of NY/NJ having a bad Covid policy because of their higher deaths / million.

36. Update: Florida COVID update: 901 added deaths, largest single-day increase in pandemic history

UPDATED AUGUST 26, 2021 05:54 PM

Florida on Thursday reported 21,765 more COVID-19 cases and 901 deaths to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, according to Miami Herald calculations of CDC data.

All but two of the newly reported deaths occurred after July 25, with about 78% of those people dying in the past two weeks, according to Herald calculations of data published by the CDC. The majority of deaths happened during Floridaís latest surge in COVID-19 cases, fueled by the delta variant.

It is the largest single-day increase to the death total in the stateís COVID pandemic history.

The jump in the number of reported cases and deaths is due to the newest way deaths and cases are counted. The CDC implemented the change earlier this month, causing occasional one-day aberrations like the 901 additional deaths on Thursday and 726 more deaths reported Monday.

...

https://www.miamiherald.com/news/coronavirus/article253766203.html


They've been backfilling the cases in bulk it seems.

Still odd that other states don't seem to be having the same issue.
