Games with Models, 6/12/20 Data

And… we’re back down to double-digit daily new cases of COVID-19 in Rhode Island, according to today’s data release.  Hospital admissions moved back down to single digits, while discharges increased.  Deaths, as well, remain in the single digits per day, now with a seven-day run.

So, all in all, the outlook is improving.  Within a few days, we’ll know whether the mass protests had a notable effect, and either way, we can all begin demanding our summer back with more confidence.
