28/6/20: COVID19 Update: US vs EU27

Updating charts for the pandemic development in the U.S. and the EU. Take your pick...

You can see acceleration dynamics in the U.S. cases in the chart above, and in rates below.

The U.S. is now a case-study on how not to do public health response. Now, daily cases and deaths:

There are some big revisions, especially in death counts, in the data. Both, U.S. and EU27 reporting remains shoddy and lagged. Even 7-day moving average (mid-point of 'prevalent' duration of contagious stage for COVID19) is pretty volatile. One additional caveat is that deaths do not fully reflect health impact of COVID19, since those who recover from the disease often suffer catastrophic long-term damage to their lungs.
