Rolling average rises again!

THURSDAY, JULY 23, 2020

Mortality rate, why is thy sting?:
The nation with the best mortality rate keeps racking up more deaths!

We won't be tracking this every day. But after yesterday's "confirmed deaths" were recorded, the 7-day rolling average had rolled upward again:
Daily deaths from coronavirus
Rolling 7-day average, nationwide

July 9-July 15: 696.9
July 10-July 16: 704.1
July 11-July 17: 720.4
July 12-July 18: 742.4
July 13-July 19: 747.4
July 14-July 20: 763.0
July 15-July 21: 799.7
July 16-July 22: 830.7
In the course of a week, our daily average has gone from just below 700 deaths per day to 830. Three weeks ago, right before the July 4 weekend, the average stood at 546.3 (June 26-July 2).

(Update: We've changed our original average for July 16-July 22. The Post has changed its original number for July 22.)

It's amazing to see this rapid increase in deaths from the country with the best mortality rate in the world! And yes, that's what Trump said.

In our world, it remains a point of amazement that Donald J. Trump could claim we have the best mortality rate, as he did four days ago in a major Sunday interview, without any major news org showing the public these numbers:
Total coronavirus deaths through July 23, per million population
United States: 443
Canada: 235
Germany: 110
Austria: 79
Norway: 47
Japan: 8
South Korea: 6
Australia: 5
New Zealand 4
Taiwan: 0.3
Seriously though, folks. Does it look like we have the best mortality rate, given what a reasonable person would think that term must mean?

On Sunday, Trump said we have the best mortality rate in the world. In response to that remarkable claim, no one has shown the public those data—no one from Chris Wallace on down.

It's exactly as we've long told you. Information plays virtually no role in our public discourse.

Our discourse is Storyline all the way down. Basic facts barely exist in the world of our upper-end press corps.

It's Storyline and Whatever Trump Said. That's all they really know.

  1. If the public doesn't know by now that Trump is lying about covid deaths, then nothing Wallace or anyone else shows them is going to convince them.

    Lack of accurate information is not the cause of belief in conspiracy theories about covid.

    1. A GREAT SPELL CASTER (DR. EMU) THAT HELP ME BRING BACK MY EX GIRLFRIEND.
      Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.

    3. When I found PRIEST WISDOM I was in desperate need of bringing my ex lover back. He left me for another woman. It happened so fast and I had no say in the situation at all. He just dumped me after 3 years with no explanation. I contacted PRIEST WISDOM  and He told me  what I need to do before he can help me and I did what he told me to, after I provided what he wanted, he cast a love spell to help us get back together. Shortly after he did his spell, my boyfriend started texting me again and felt horrible for what he just put me through. He said that I was the most important person in his life and he knows that now. We moved in together and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than before. Ever since PRIEST WISDOM helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before. I highly recommend PRIEST WISDOM to anyone in need of help. Email: Supernaturalspell1@gmail.com .

  2. "And the group fueling Biden’s polling surge is seniors and white voters with college degrees."

    Does Somerby's continual criticism of journalists and other people with college degrees tend to help or hurt Biden's campaign?

    Does Somerby think that if Fauci were giving the covid briefings the info might be more accurate? If so, does his continual criticism of those with expertise help or hurt the possibility of having someone with actual knowledge give such briefings?

    Today, Somerby is criticizing Professor Goff, without a fair presentation of his statements and ideas first. His tone is one of mockery and he refers to disappointed and despairing anthropologists. Does this kind of thing tend to help or hurt Biden's campaign? Does it help Trump get re-elected when Somerby mocks black professors? Or is this more "owning the libs" which warms the heart of conservatives, tossing them red meat so they will stick with Trump?

  3. It would be very strange if daily deaths went up and the rolling average did not. I am glad that Somerby is making sure these numbers behave the way they should.

    1. Not strange at all. If daily deaths on some interval you're averaging over start high, drop, and then move up again, then at some point, the tail of the rolling average will move off the initial highs and into the lows between the peaks. The rolling average could drop as it stops incorporating the initial highs and starts incorporating lows, even as it counts new increases.

    2. 4:58 put another way:

      No shit, Somerby.

      It is significant that deaths are increasing.

      It is not significant that the trend of rolling averages is increasing as daily deaths are increasing.

      It is not significant that during a trend of increasing deaths the rolling average could drop due to some aberrant lows.

      There is nothing new about Trump's claims being counter-factual. No one besides Trumpers think that we have the best mortality rate, no one is unaware that we are in the midst of a spike in deaths. Somerby may as well be amazed that toilets flush.

  4. Why does Somerby seem to think that only Wallace can contradict Trump? Lots of people everywhere have said that Trump lies about this stuff. Don't their efforts matter?

  8. I visited my doctor for a second opinion to verify that I am currently experiencing genital warts on both sides of my inner labia caused by HSV which I was not aware I had until the genital warts appeared. I discovered them about 2 months ago and it saddened me to find the warts because I felt it meant I had contracted an STD,I never applied medical drugs or therapies,because I prefer going natural routes first if any are available. At first, I was not sure I’d be able to use anything since the labia is such a sensitive area but I remembered that I had been reviewing series of testimonies on how herbal doctor razor had been curing people of Genital warts, And I had Them on the bottoms of my feet so I decided to try doctor razor herbs. Thankfully, Doctor razor herbal medication seems to be getting rid of the genital warts. When I first began applying it I noticed some slight aching feelings in my vaginal area that I had never felt before. I no longer feel the aches though. I AM SO GRATEFUL TO BE COMPLETELY CURED OF THIS VIRUS.However, I don’t feel the shame anymore and am so grateful to Mother Nature and Doctor Razor for helping a sister out.
