    I just received a note from a Canadian pal in his cabin near North Bay, in isolation, snowed in with his wife...


    ďWe are a week into self-isolation and it is really upsetting me to witness my wife standing at the living room window gazing aimlessly into space with tears running down her cheeks.


    ďIt breaks my heart to see her like this. I have thought very hard about how I can cheer her up.


    ďI have even considered letting her in - but rules are rules.Ē

    The reports in the press have not shown useful data, just total numbers of cases and deaths. To try to make sense and gain some knowledge I created my own spreadsheet that massages the numbers:

    Country Total cases New cases Cases per 1M New Cases %
    Turkey 3629 1196 43 33
    Belgium 6235 1298 538 21
    USA 85435 17224 258 20
    Austria 6909 1321 767 19
    UK 11658 2129 172 18
    Canada 4043 634 107 16
    Portugal 3544 549 348 15
    Germany 43938 6615 524 15
    Brazil 2985 431 14 14
    Spain 57786 8271 1236 14
    Netherlands 7431 1019 434 14
    France 29155 3922 447 13
    Australia 3050 374 120 12
    Israel 2693 324 311 12
    Sweden 2840 314 281 11
    Norway 3372 288 622 9
    Denmark 1877 153 324 8
    Iran 29406 2389 350 8
    Switzerland 11811 914 1365 8
    Italy 80589 6203 1333 8
    S Korea 9241 131 180 1
    China 81285 67 56 0

    The first two columns are raw data that really don't tell you anything. The fourth, New Cases %, shows the new cases as a percentage of all cases. This normalizes the data for population size. Now it starts show something useful. Even though the US has the highest number of cases, it is "only" the third worst in new cases as a percentage of the total cases. Basically we are out of control, but not as much as Turkey and Belgium. At the opposite end of the spreadsheet it shows good news for Italy because there are few new cases, even though the total number of cases is very high, so they are getting the situation stabilized.

    The third column, cases per 1M shows how big a percentage of total population is currently a case. If it is low, you either haven't started seeing the infections explode, or you have gone through the peak and you have the situation under control. South Korea and China are in the best shape. But this doesn't mean that they are in the clear, because nobody knows, for any country, how big a percentage has become immune. If it is low, then when you relax your control you go into a second wave, or a third, or a fourth....

    The US numbers are very bad and I think we are in for a really bad summer, especially if we go back to business as usual by Easter Sunday.

    The USA numbers are also misleading since they are based on incomplete testing. Now that testing is finally, although slowly, ramping up, we may have accurate numbers in a few weeks. But at the moment our country has significantly under counted the number of cases. For example, in Ohio, where I live, the governor's office suggests that there are 100x more cases than counted thus far. So although 867 have been verified via test, we likely have 86,700. And see NY City where the numbers have exploded, as has the testing.

    That’s a scary, and very sobering, thought.
