The Financial Times has a bunch of COVID-19 graphs in an article. Here is one.
Note the blue, ‘Washington state’, now recording 50 daily deaths.
What does the Washington state government site say?
Well, that is curious. Washington state has never had a daily death count above 20. Is the data FT is relying on coming from a dodgy source?
How are the model predictions going? When will Washington state expect the peak number of deaths? Maybe 50 is just around the corner? Here is the answer from an article titled ‘Pandemic’s Peak – Here’s The Date for Your State‘.
Well, that’s encouraging; the peak has passed. The worst day, according to the models was 27 March.
Oops! In true climate science reporting-speak, “The lowest since records began.”
