Covid-19 Update July 2, 2020: Case Fatality Rate (CFR)

Per the request of my mother the retired epidemiologist: the Covid-19 CFR by country. This comparison method helps (somewhat) to filter out very large discrepancies due to unequal amounts of testing and/or reporting across nations.

Next up: moving averages.

Moving-averaged data will further smooth rate changes, and also help to reporting rate effects, i.e. weekend when data are not reported will create less impact on daily computations (in my .GIFs thus far, I’ve kept it at one day/frame.

Updated on 7/26/20 – changed “mortality rate” to “case fatality rate.”
