Aug. 10, 2020: Another Way to Measure

There are graphs and charts everywhere trying to capture the relentless spread of COVID-19. My data collection effort began on April 7 with the WI primary and in-person voting. This spreadsheet compare its expansion during the 4 weeks between April 14 and May 12 with what's happened since the WI Supreme Court declared an end to the Governor's safer-at-home orders.

I chose an arbitrary number of 20 cases as my marker. Counties that meet or surpass that number are highlighted.

Sep. 8 showed 67 of our 72 counties meeting or surpassing this marker. Last week, Sep. 15, only 7 days later, 55 counties made the cut. 6 days later, there are still 55 although not all the same ones.
