Charting Covid: Purely Data for Data Sake

Daily Death Rate
This charts the day-to-day death rate. The death rate provided in this chart is calculated by dividing the number of deaths on a given day by the number of brand-new cases for that day. Not an exact indicator of the rolling death rate, due to the fact that this chart utilizes the 14-day rolling average of deaths and cases, it is rather representative of the actual death rate.

March 21, 2020, I began tracking COVID– specifically the everyday numbers. I undertook this task for a number of factors: I enjoy information, I wasnt going anywhere for a while, however more specifically so that I could discuss it smartly.
Clearly discernable trends have emerged over the last 7 months. “Waves,” as some call them are plainly noticeable in the charts.
In this white paper I want to supply the charts that have developed from my nighttime tracking. No conclusions are drawn, no commentary is offered, and no opinion is provided. This is simply information for data sake. You should draw your own conclusions, supply your own commentary and develop your own opinion.
Approach
As mentioned, the details utilized to develop these charts have been tracked and taped NIGHTLY because March 21. All details utilized as part of this tracking program is taken from WorldOMeter.com, Johns Hopkins and numerous state websites. Each of these details sources undertake to provide proper data, neither they nor I can ensure the information.
Because one day does not constitute a pattern, these charts use the 14-day rolling averages. Utilizing a 14-day average removes the extreme spikes and valleys that exist in daily counts and even the spikes found in a 7-day rolling average. When this 14-day rolling average is NOT used, the description of the chart specifies that a different technique is applied.
The time period tracked in these charts is the somewhat more seven-month period in between March 21 and October 31.
The only commentary I offer is a description of what info is graphed by the chart.
