Source: Covid vs. US Daily Average Cause of Death, Robert Martin on 8 Apr 2020

For those still saying influenza is a much bigger killer than COVID-19 (SARS-COV-2), the numbers don’t support that argument, especially considering there are many deaths that strongly appear to be due to COVID-19 that are not reported as such because the deceased are not tested. The animation conveys the speed with which an exponentially increasing infection rate overtakes other, relatively linear rates of expansion.

Love it. The virus had a hard time beating out cancer there for a little while. That’s encouraging. Also, I like that I now have to worry less about dying in all the other possible ways, including my obsessive worry of getting stabbed in the back of the head waiting in the checkout line at a liquor store. — Paul
