Germany may have just been able to test relatively more people and so their proportion of deaths to positive tests is lower. The difference in mortality rate may not have anything to do with how fatal the virus is in the two countries.
I thought of that after I posted it. I mused over it for a while, and here are a thought and an observation.This.
I think the data analysts really need to slow their roll until words like "reported" and "confirmed" mean the same thing across every data set. Right now, they just don't ... and that means the data itself is unreliable, which means analyzing it is fairly well useless. Countries that are engaging in heavy, widespread testing are the only ones who have reliable core data. Everybody else is working on presumptions, which are poison for serious reflection.
FWIW, there is a spoiler function/button.... Insert > Spoiler from the 3-dot menu icon in the posting frame. They use it a lot in the American Politics thread on the Leafs sub-board.Me geeking some more. Mods, if we had a "spoiler" function, I could use that to keep from annoying the uninterested. Or I could just shut up, but when does anyone do that on internet forums?
And then at 4 is Duke v. Kentucky, the 1992 regional final. Tomorrow at 4 is Villanova v. UNC from 2016. I hurt myself jumping out of my recliner that night but I should be OK tomorrow.today on CBS, 12 noon 1982 BB title game. at 2 PM 1983 BB title game. I predict both are close games
Look ... do this if you want, but be aware that it's hella annoying and if you use it as frequently as Zeke does on the Leafs boards, we WILL have words.FWIW, there is a spoiler function/button....

I'm not sure why you would think you can't "talk numbers" on this thread. The only thing people have objected to is unattributed speculation. There has been some discussion on whether or not the numbers being tossed around mean what people say they do ... but that is, in fact, a discussion about the numbers ... so ... carry on.I'm not really sure why people can't talk numbers here but if they want to, the Leafs board is open to whatever if it's on topic. I'm a bit of a nerd too and I like to look at numbers. Not like there's much else to do on my days off.
