COVID-19: Mortality Trend Over the Past Four Days
April 3, 2020
From Ahvie Herskowitz, MD
You can see from the chart above that Washington State and California curves are relatively flat. You can also see that while New York State and New Jersey have tripled (3X) their mortality numbers in the past 4 days, NY City, the epicenter of Coronavirus in the US has doubled (2X), likely due to access to more concentrated infrastructure and ICU expertise.
During the same 4 day period, deaths in the entire San Francisco Bay area rose from 49 to 75, and in San Francisco, deaths went up from 6 to 7. Most of the CA cases are now concentrated in Los Angeles.
