Yesterday's "hitch" in new cases doesn't pay out.
as the US creeps still closer to Italy's path:
New cases in one day:
Italy 6,419 (14%)
US 6,982 (35%)
Canada 239 (22%)
US cases per capita are 9.2% of Italy's; a week ago we were at 2.2%.
But US cases per capita are now 2.1 times the same number for the rest of the world:
Finally, I should mention how I calculate my numbers. Instead of using WHO's data, which are given day-by-day for a full day, I use the current data that appears on Worldometer, owned by the software company Dadax. Since I don't look at the data every time the same day (but usually do so between 5-7 am, depending on when my cats want breakfast), I normalize the numbers to 24 hours. So if X new cases appeared in 25.5 hours, the number I report is (X/25.5)*24.
