Italy’s struggle is being seen as a tragic warning for other countries to heed, in part because it is paying the price of early mixed messages by scientists+politicians. US is not far behind

We can get lost in the weeds and debate the measurement method all we want, but it appears we’re on a similar trajectory as Italy and Iran

The United States has way more people than Italy. It’s not an accurate comparison.

The average age of death is 76 in Italy. They have the oldest population of any other country. That is not the case in the US.

OP, I think most of us are in agreement with you on the impact and severity of coronavirus, but this chart is a perfect example of how information can be easily misrepresented and explains why there’s so much confusion right now. Let’s use our skills as consultants to weed out the crappy data from the facts

Keep in mind, this trajectory represents none of the actions we’ve taken at the state level or nationally yet. Reported cases is a lagging indicator. This data will get worse before it gets better

Japan has the advantage of Built in social distancing in their culture. They bow instead of shake hands and they are already well established for the online lifestyle. They are also a decade ahead on robots. Japan will thrive in this shake up.

Agree that the chart isn’t fully accurate as US will have much more infrastructure than Italy and chart should be normalized for that, especially if the main inflection point is exceeding capacity of the healthcare system. Some may argue, “but what about NYC!”. Sure, so plot that separately then.
