Today's numbers over/under

NCC 6843 + 49
KENT 2183 +16
SUSSEX 5630 +22

Hospitalizations 45 - 1
Critical 18 + 7

As you can see by my mistakes this is not the most important thing I do every day. I will keep it up as long as I can, but I am going to encourage anyone who has more than a casual interest in this to go to the coronavirus.delaware.gov website. There are a ton of interesting stats about this virus and the breakdown is fascinating. I have to admit that once I saw that the numbers changed and I could not go back to reconstruct them, I totally zoned out. If I can't go back to what the site published - it seems like a fools errand to me.

Nuts, you've been a good sport to post the #'s every day, but I hope that you won't feel obligated to continue. As you've indicated, we all have the ability to go onto the DE site to check the #'s. I can only speak for myself, but this could go on for quite a while and I know I can definitely understand if you are ready to stop posting daily.

Whatever you decide, I just wanted to let you know it has been appreciated and to thank you for all you've done.

CD shouldn’t be a chore. And we’re a looooong way from done. All the info can easily be found online.

You can sign off as a having done a great job.

All of you have been so kind and I know it is a lot easier to just read the summary, so I will keep it going for a little while. I really think this will be with us well into next year. The losses incurred here are staggering to say the very least. On one hand as I've said before, the traffic does not really bother me, but it has been noticeably lighter this year. But I do fear for the many businesses that are struggling so badly and worried about what the face of Rehoboth Avenue is going to look like next year.

Not sure if you saw this: https://whyy.org/articles/rehoboth-b...e-in-visitors/

We forwarded it to a friend in RB who is a business owner. He told us it’s pretty accurate, from his perspective.

If you have not already seen post #465 read it. It is regarding the losses in Rehoboth. That is only from 76 out of 1200 business owners surveyed.

This year is also a struggle for many because the J1 students did not come. We usually get around 1000 give or take per year. Many of the shops wanted to stay open longer to at least see if it would help the bottom line, but for many it meant 60 hour weeks. We have heard that there are 9 students here. We made a decision to suspend the church dinners and bike program for our own safety early on.

Today's numbers over/under

NCC 6868 + 25
KENT 2199 + 16
SUSSEX 5656 +26

Hospitalizations 45 - 1
Critical 8 - 10

I am telling you the critical care units must be amazing. It must be in the miracle category. Here are the numbers for the past 3 days.
Day before 11 no change
Yesterday's 18 plus 7
Today's 8 down 10

There were no new deaths reported. I guess it is possible that 10 people who were critical are no longer, but it certainly seems to be very unlikely. I think the reporting of this data is slow at the very least and maybe when all is said and done accurate, but I now have little stock in these numbers.

I did read that post. It was very sobering. It seems like we have no good choices we can make with this pandemic, and people have differing views on how we achieve the “least worst outcome.”

On a 2nd note, I hope everyone at the beaches fare well through tomorrow’s storm.

You should be posting the numbers of the bordering states along with DE. Considering the transient population, porous state borders and the larger numbers at all adjacent states, using DE alone doesn't give an accurate picture. I'm not a professional statistician, but wouldn't you want to pull a sample with a circumference that captures the most interaction in a population? 4/10 people I work with live in neighboring states. People come here and get sick, but I doubt they're going to stay in the hospital here. Along with that, there are a lot of people that dont want to go to a DE hospital. I don't think anyone is forced to go to the hospital in your residential state.
