in daily new cases per capita, 7 day moving average.

And accelerating -- the 14 day change is 84% (7 day average thru Tuesday vs. 7 days average 14 days before)

7 day positivity up a bit more to 10.5%

Today's (Wednesday's) report is 3,457 new cases. That's considerably below the NYTimes 4,484 7-day-case-average thru Tuesday, so that will help. The previous Wednesday was 5,265 cases, and that will drop out of the 7 day average next time NYTimes does an update (that 5,265 cases included a lot of backlogged cases. The previous 2 Wednesdays before that were 1,799 three weeks ago, and 2,941 two weeks ago.)

Edited to add Nov 18 2:24 AM NYTimes has Michigan at number 1 again. Wednesday's data now included at NYTimes and it dropped the 7 day average a bit in Minnesota (because last Wednesday, which dropped out of the 7 day window, was so much higher than this Wednesday's). Anyway, I think this drop is a very temporary, because last Wednesday was anomalously high due to a backlog.
