Quoted from razorsedge:
Thank you for putting up that info!
It seems testing/recording started a bit later in India?. Looks a bit like they're still in a drawn out first wave, or just full spread... there are probably heaps more deaths really too, Cv deaths would surely be under reported hey?
Will be interesting to see the direction things go there. They let it loose worse than Sweden did ...
At least two more very interesting points yet to go about those India graphs, that most people might not have really noticed at all?
Like someone here noted, sometimes less is more. Maybe someone else can spot some other less obvious interesting points.
I barely got started... stopped short now though.
Gotta play pinball I'm up!
Here is more data to help, including testing rates as well...
Test per 1000 people
Daily New Cases
Daily recorded deaths
I understand not everybody has an easy time interpreting graph data, so here are some noteworthy points...
- INDIA has about quadruple the population of the USA, and people packed in much tighter. Yet they have about the same number of daily recorded deaths.
- INDIA is performing about a quarter as many tests per 1000 people than the UK or US, but testing about the same Number of People total as the US (since the population is 4 fold, so about 1 million tests per day).
- INDIA must have Vast numbers of unrecorded Cases And Deaths, not reflected in the data, but might still be doing alot better than some other places in the world despite that. UK and US have plenty of unrecorded cases as well of course, but India counts for about 1.4 billion people. Proportions. Per head capita there are 4 times as many recorded deaths in the US than in India. Bearing in mind methodology probably varies between them.
- Comparing daily confirmed Deaths against daily confirmed Cases for India, UK and USA (approx.).. INDIA; 80k cases, 1k deaths (1.25%). UK; 6000 cases, 50 deaths (0.84%). USA; 40k cases, 1000 deaths (2.5%).
- Things are also probably a bit skewed though, for several reasons. For example, some countries are more heavily plagued by unhealthy lifestyle and high rates of obesity, than others. This would obviously increase morbidity, compared to countries where the population is more health conscious. Not all countries situations are easily comparable regarding Cv19 effects.
WITH such massive volumes and kinds of trivial data flying about these days, no surprise it can be tough to find focus or reason. Overwhelming amounts of 'information' to digest. Some real, some not, which is one of the things that makes it so challenging and time consuming to filter through and find reason. Observation or analysis are only as reliable as the data. Garbage in garbage out. India may be doing Alot worse than Anywhere, if the data we're looking at is way out.
