    1. Thanks for the question! Currently, we haven’t had much luck developing a vaccine for a coronavirus. The CDC has been working on it since the SARS outbreak in 2002. Maybe with so many health professionals and researchers working on it, we will have some success. It is really hard to know though if we will be able to even develop a vaccine but if we do, expect it to be at least a year before it becomes available to the general public. If you are really interested in the problem, here is an article by the National Institutes of Health that helps explain why it is so hard. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16035944

    1. The positive information coming out right now is that more people are recovering than are dying so that is good. Hopefully we will continue to find ways to treat patients and help them recover. Thanks for the question though. There are a lot of crazy information out there. Check out the post about misconceptions for more information. http://www.georgiastem.com/covid-19-misconceptions/

  1. The death stats will change with time. The graph of the point of infection is unknown, which will be out of sync with the confirmed, morbidity, and healed. SARS when running was 3-4%, but finished at 9.6%.

    This for quite awhile was 2% with all the experts declaring it’s fatality rate was only 2%. It is now locked in at 3.4% and rising. When the cases eventually peak, there will still be thousands or tens of thousands of severely ill. A good percentage of those will pass. The fatality stats will continue to rise after there are no new confirmed.

    The Chinese stats are not accurate. Mid Feb they posted 13000 in one day, decided to include the ones that were in hospital, had all the symptoms including pneumonia, but had not been tested. Many died at home that were never tested. How many had minor symptoms, never tested?

    South Korea with their aggressive transparent testing has the best chance of getting closer stats to reality.

    Regardless, based on SARS stats, this has more of a chance of finishing over 5% than less.

    1. The data all comes from the CDC, WHO and Johns Hopkins. We also pull directly from the Georgia Department of Public Health. We added the raw data to the post so you can see the actual numbers that go into each graph. Thanks for the question.

  2. There is something weird going on with the map. Why were there 1600 and something cases on Thursday night and then only 1200 something on Friday?

    1. Yes- there are many states who just stopped reporting data for a 24-48 hour period. The data looked weird. We believe in most cases, it was so they could get databases and dashboards set up to track the data. Most have since appeared back on the map, thankfully. We will continue to monitor the data and post as it is updated at COVID Math and COVID GIS MAP Thank you for your question.

  3. Is Georgia specific information available? Will GDPH publish positive COVID-19 by county? Will there be a way for the public to be aware of hotspots?

    1. Thankfully, GDPH released a new web portal today. We did lose access to presumptive cases but we still get the confirmed cases as well as the county the case is in. Georgia STEM is going to update the COVID Math page everyday at noon with this information as well as the COVID GIS Map Thank you Mrs. Spence for the question and for following the posts.
