Number of deaths chart is not consistent with daily deaths
Yesterday (April 28th)18 new deaths were reported. Today the number in the graph shows only 2 for April 28th. Why the discrepancy?
Another post reported the same issue https://azdhs.uservoice.com/forums/120045-adhs-customer-feedback/suggestions/40250995-daily-covid-19-death-chart
Since it has more votes and comments, I am moving my comments there
From this point moving forward, I am keeping an excel sheet of how death counts change each day in the death chart based on certificate date. This will reveal where the death counts are being placed each day since the report of new deaths has been invalidated by the site reporting.
Today an announcement appeared at the top of the AZ COVID page indicating new guidelines for reporting deaths was a factor to mismatch in data, along with the historical chart is based on death certificate dates, not when reported.
I watched the video, it only gave instructions on *how* (not when) the death should be reported. It still does not address why the discrepancies are so vast.
The logical and reasonable explanation of new deaths reported each day is that they should also be based on death certificate dates. Please be consistent!
Everyone, on May 8th, 67 new deaths have been reported. What will the historical death chart show a couple days from now? I will be back to report the discrepancy.
Also, on my next comment, I will provide links to external sites that are reporting it correctly.
why cant this be fixed. which is correct, the number of deaths reported or the number showing
on the graphs. This is bad, Gives the public -0- faith in who is monitoring this site.
May 6 says 24 deaths. you drop down to graph and shows 2. everyday there is big
discrepency. Who is monitoring this site. sad that info can be this misleading.
Update on May 5, only 4 deaths are showing as reported even though previous comment here shows 33 should be the number. Very alarming!
Today (May 5) 33 new COVID-19 deaths have been reported. All of us should check back in a day or two and see if the historical “death chart” erroneously reports the number for this date. Stay tuned...
10 new deaths were reported May 1st. The death chart now states only 1 death for May 1st.
This is not only inaccurate, but very misleading to any who view chart looking for trends. Please fix this!
The discrepancies continue. On April 30th, this site reported 16 new deaths. The death chart shows only 3 died that day.
Come back tomorrow for more discrepancies. On May 1st, 10 new deaths were reported. What erroneous number will replace it? Find out soon.. I am also taking screenshots each day to prove how false the reports are.
Good thing other sites are reporting death data in Arizona more accurately.
April 29th reported 11 deaths. April 30th shows only 1 death. The discrepancy continues. By the way, what will tomorrow bring? Today (April 30th) the site reported 16 new deaths. What low number will replace it tomorrow May 1st?
FYI - Other sites (sadly) are reporting the number of deaths per day accurately
