🧶 Thread: Statistical data by county with graphics.

1. Looking at the national picture we see that only a few states have death numbers higher than last year's Flu:
- New York,
- New Jersey,
- Connecticut,
- Mass,
- Michigan,
- Louisiana,
- perhaps Rhode Island & Colorado.
2. New York State provides has the most deaths of any state in the USA.

However, When we examine the data more closely we see that deaths are primarily confined to the NYC metro area. (Connecticut's most affected county is Fairfield which is part of NYC metro.)
3. As we look into the NY data more we see are large percentage of deaths (39%) come from over age 80 and 95% of deaths come from people over 50 years old.
4. Looking at NYCs population we see:

- 3.5% of NYCers (300k) are over age 80
- 8% of NYCers (764k) are over age 70
- 18% of NYCers (1.6M) are over age 80
- 31% of NYCs (2.7M) are over age 50
5. Other states are showing a similar pattern of disproportionate deaths. In at least 13 states over 50% of deaths are connected to nursing homes.
6. New England Radio Host, Howie Carr, has distributed similar data which was appreciated and signed by the president of the US.
7. Looking at Connecticut we see that about 50% of the deaths have occurred in Fairfield County which is connected to NY state.
8. Looking at New Jersey we see the statistics we see a higher death rate in certain counties as well. This data could be combed through my thoroughly. (Why do certain counties have higher rates of death than others per total number of cases? I am not sure.)
9. Attached is an New Jersey map showing the concentration of reported deaths in the Northeastern portion of the state. See with data in previous tweet.
