Cohort Analysis Updated Again

By January 27, 2021Commentary

An updated look at hospitalization or death rates in the cohort analysis, which takes cases from a week and identifies hospitalization and death rates attached to that cohort.  The state and the CDC should explicitly do this, but don’t.  This is very, very important to identify trends.  A weakness is that we are relying solely on reported cases, so some infections are missed, which would make the rates lower and might change the trends because testing strategies and levels have changed, but we also know that some reported cases likely aren’t real cases.  Be really nice to have more accurate information.  Thanks to DD again.
