About Me

Female. Retired. Wife-Mom-Grandma. Approx. 30 years in broadcasting, at least 20 of those in news biz. Taurus. Loves chocolate - preferably without nuts or cocoanut. Animal lover. Rock-hound from pre-school age. Proud Democrat for life. Ardent environmentalist and pro-choicer. Hoping to use my skills set for the greater good. Still married to the same guy for 40+ years. Probably because he's a proud Democrat, too. Penmanship absolutely stinks, so I'm glad I'm a fast typist! I will always love Hillary and she will always be my President.

So out of morbid curiosity, I did some math to see when we might hit a million confirmed cases.

Assuming the last figure of Monday evening, confirmed cases US, 987,367.

The first figure of the morning I had, at 9:29am, was 975,006. An arbitrary start of the day, since we slept in.

If you subtract that figure, 975,006 from the last such stat of the evening, 987,367, the difference is 12,361.

Okay, then, using that number (12,361) as the day's increase, seems to me you can make a somewhat educated guess based on that. Assuming we'd see the same increase in Tuesday's numbers, you'd add that number (12,361) to Monday's final figure (987,367), and get 999,728. Which is only 272 less than a million.

Therefore, based on this set of calculations, we're likely to reach a million confirmed COVID-19 cases sometime Tuesday, late in the day.

Judging on the rate of increase, I wouldn't expect it to take Wednesday to reach that dismal milestone.

Tomorrow will tell.

So much suffering...

The marker that some in the media have pointed to is the 58-thousand dead from the Vietnam War. We're gonna pass that figure this coming week.

Just awful. Painful. Stupefying. And Horrifying.

Yep, there ARE irregularities and inconsistencies in this entirely NON-scientific sampling here.

Definitely.

There are different data sources. CNN has its own system of metrics. MSNBC has its own. And there are all kinds of variables in rate of reporting, AND the rate the reporting is disseminated in the media.

I've been tracking this stuff unofficially for awhile now, and I've noticed the graphics aren't always regularly available so you can make note of changes at the same time every day, for example.

And frankly, your humble tracker here sometimes has internal variables as far as not being up and "on duty" at the same times every day, and not monitoring continuously to note every change in real time. Sometimes I grab photos of the graphics when they're on delay on our TV because we rolled back on the continuous record mode (or whatever you call it) so I try to get the time check that's ON the graphic itself, rather than depending on exactly when I actually took the photo.

I'm assuming I can get at least some consistent comparisons by relying on a single source for the data. Just happens to be what MSNBC is running because that's what I wind up monitoring a majority of the time.

Long windy way of saying this is not exactly a precision-scientific polling effort. Really more aimed at watching the numbers and the trending within timeframes.

OY. Again...
