Wealth is a vector
 Thatís what sociologist Tressie McMillan Cottom tweeted last week, in reference to the spread of COVID-19 across both the globe and the United States. Wealth is not the cause of every concentrated outbreak dotting the United States. But itís the common denominator of so much of its spread outside of major urban areas. Itís the reason why so many of the coronavirus hot spots in the Mountain West ó Sun Valley, Idaho; Gunnison County, Colorado; Summit County, Utah; Gallatin County, Montana ó overlap with winter playgrounds for the wealthy. The virus travels via people, and the people who travel the most, both domestically and internationally, are rich people.

US sets record for single day covid19 deaths at at least 1169!

some great visualizations of the data on Covid-19

https://informationisbeautiful.net/visualizations/covid-19-coronavirus-infographic-datapack/

somewhat comforting is the Case Fatality Rate in the us (2.6) is a lot lower vs other countries in the world (avg 4.6)
but collection and accuracy of data is suspect

Important note on that graph
CFR is unreliable during an outbreak

100+ people per day die in traffic accidents in the US daily. 12,000+ are injured enough to require medical attention. That has to be way down these days, right?

More than 38,000 people die every year in crashes on U.S. roadways. The U.S. traffic fatality rate is 12.4 deaths per 100,000 inhabitants. An additional 4.4 million are injured seriously enough to require medical attention. Road crashes are the leading cause of death in the U.S. for people aged 1-54.

This thing is going to end up killing a hell of a lot of Biden voters.

i think it's going to kill a lot more trump voters.

1) the governors who listened to trump and delayed enacting stay-at-home rules are all exclusively from pro-trump states, as far as i can tell.

2)


I'm talking about inner city (Detroit, New Orleans, Atlanta, etc) diabetic (and other conditions) black people, who disproportionately have existing medical conditions (and 96% of those dying have pre-existing conditions). The older white people (i.e. Trump voters), primarily live in suburbs and rural areas, where they will be able to more easily socially distance. Not saying Trump won't lose some of his flock, but a disproportionate amount of black people are going to die from this.
Anecdotal as hell but I have several aunts and uncles who are huge Trumpers. None are socially distancing. Total survivorship bias.

Lansing ó At least 40% of those killed by the novel coronavirus in Michigan so far are black, a percentage that far exceeds the proportion of African Americans in the Detroit region and state.

The first statewide release of mortality by race in Michigan, among the first in the nation, suggests that the actual percentage of blacks killed could be significantly higher ó the race of nearly a third killed has yet to be disclosed.

In Michigan, just 14% of the population is black. And while the coronavirus outbreak has been centered in Metro Detroit, African Americans make up less than a quarter of the six-county metropolitan area.

I found the Hidden Brain podcast on the 1918 Flu situation to be informative....
