Covid-19 death chart is meaningless
I understand why cases data is adjusted when results come in, but deaths happen on a date certain. The fact someone was tested last week, doesn’t change the date of death. Today we had 8 deaths....we started the week on 4/12with 115 deaths, and now we have 150 deaths, an increase of 35 deaths, but bar chart shows just 2....All 150 deaths are on the bar chart but prior weeks have been adjusted to reflect test date I assume, which makes the chart pretty meaningless. How can you see if deaths are rising or declining, week to week or day to day?
Again please look at Maricopa web site. They help the reader understand the meaning of trends they are seeing in the data. There are probably other good statewide models too. I'd love to be able to drill down and see good data for Pima, Maricopa and Navajo counties. Perhaps a UA or ASU grad student or Faculty member could assist you in developing the right template.
And for some reason the bar charts keep clipping off the newest data columns...I use an IPad, Android and pc....have different display issues daily....perhaps because you are trying to fix....but it is still not perfect.
I know you must be struggling, but this is so important to help the public understand where we are in this pandemic.
