There's not a lot of change from last week to this week's COVID data, except that number of of new cases, hospitalizations, and deaths per day is stabilizing, rather than continuing to drop.
The number of new cases is down. New hospitalizations are down. Deaths are also down, but they show worrying signs of stabilizing at levels higher than I would want to see.
Too much going on around here with the end of the school year and working from home. I'll have an update this week, likely published this weekend.
"No mask, no service" is only controversial because the people affected by it are used to being on the giving end of such restrictions, not the receiving end.
Not all opinions are created equal. Opinions that are informed by facts, data, logic, and science are better than opinions that are not. And opinions that are based on fantasy, misinformation, wishful thinking, and ignorance are the least of all.
Contrary to what the anti-stay-at-home activists claim, Governor Polis' mitigations were effective. They worked. And they saved lives.
Another week of data, another update to the COVID-19 observations on data variability, backdating noise, and maybe - maybe - a little bit of very cautious optimism.
Backdating continues to confound Colorado COVID-19 data to the point that we still can't justify the relaxation of the statewide stay-at-home order.
No COVID-19 data from the last week should be used to make any irreversible decisions about COVID-19 policy in the state of Colorado, and based on the analysis below, data from as far as two weeks ago should be considered suspect.
