COVID-19 Still Exponential Growth, Worsening, Idaho Back to Stage 2


Idaho has gone back to Stage 2 of the Covid response plan. Two weeks away from health care overwhelm. Churches still fully open. Thanksgiving less than two weeks away.

The growth characteristics of Idaho and the whole of the USA look like they may actually be accelerating on the log plot of deaths and cases, which is quite bad. 

The USA deaths has remained steady, still bad, but means that the percent rate growth is staying the same (about 1%), while the Idaho death and cases curves, which were remaining steady, appear to have stepped up into a faster rate of growth.

This means that more people are getting sicker faster, and are infecting more people and at a faster rate. We want to see these curves go flat and start to drop downwards, not keep climbing or start climbing at a faster rate.
