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.
What will we choose - bowing down to the terrorists who would reject the states' authority to protect the public from COVID-19, or standing up to them even if that means using the National Guard to do so?
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.
The old normal is gone, and the new normal is yet to take shape through the dense fog of the present.
The only people calling to relax the lockdowns are whites who are among the least likely to die from it. That's white privilege and selfishness.
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.
