GRAPH: Daily Coronavirus Deaths Are Decreasing

Let’s have an honest discussion.

This week MSNBC & New York Times editors made a ridiculous math flub on TV. So, for that reason alone, we should question the media’s basic facts and assumptions.

Media Misleads with Cumulative Statistics & Graphs

The media only uses a cumulative graph to illustrate coronavirus deaths. This is misleading. It shows the number of fatalities continuously increasing, on a time-based graph. But, the number of global deaths per day are decreasing.

When I inform people of this fact, no one accepts it. Instead, people say China isn’t sharing all information.

To that, I reply: What about South Korea?

They rarely respond.

There is a reason the genius scientist & entrepreneur Elon Musk tweeted this:

…and you might be dumb if you continue to believe the mainstream media. They are an abject failure. This virus fear-mongering is just the latest example.

Since I could not find a graph to illustrate the per-day fatalities, I made one using John Hopkins’ raw data on GITHUB.

The virus is decreasing in hotspots such as South Korea, China and Hong Kong (the first to deal with the novel virus). The press tells us it’s an outbreak, or a pandemic on the precipice. Both situations would suggest exponential growth. The actual data doesn’t suggest exponential growth of fatalities at all. The data suggests decline. In fact, the crude death rate is statistically 0.

Also, it’s now being estimated that 80% of individuals that contract the coronavirus are asymptomatic or midly-symptomatic. And in this viral video, Rebecca Fraiser says she “never really felt unwell” after contracting the virus, and it “sounds like it is the case for the majority of people.”
