Maricopa County doesn’t look great. I don’t know anyone there, so I’m not informed on how stressed they really are. It’s a small overall population, but Kings County, California doesn’t seem well suited to its outbreak in the local prison system. ...

[quote]Got it. Is there a meaningful stat that tracks what we would care about in this regard - i.e. hospitals actually getting over-burdened?[/quote] As COVID hospitalizations rise (especially COVID ICU usage), that should prompt us to ask those systems for more information on the nature of that...

re: Florida is crushing it against Coronavirus - Athanatos
[quote]I have never seen this accusation.[/quote] I have. It’s a call back to the GIS data scientist’s allegations in early May about the Florida Department of Health requiring epidemiological oversight before posting data publicly. That was twisted into an accusation that Florida was hiding case...
