A Different Look at the Statstics – from Lucy Weber


As rosy as our statistics are here in NH, the latest NY Times analysis provides some food for thought. Here is the comparison, by county, of the number of COVID cases per capita, compared with two weeks ago. Here in Cheshire County, the rate is very low–0.8 cases per 100,000 residents currently. But that represents a 33% INCREASE over two weeks ago, when that rate was at 0.6 per 100,000.

Four counties have LOWERED their rates of infection:

Belknap: 1.6->1.2

Carroll: 3.7->1.2

Grafton: 1.0->0.5

Sullivan: 1.0->0.7

Two counties have stayed the same:

Coos: 0.9=0.9

Merrimack: 0.9=0.9

And four counties have Increased their rates of infection:

Cheshire: 0.8<-0.6

Hillsborough: 4.0<-2.9

Rockingham: 1.4<-1.2

Strafford: 0.8<-0.5

Now is not the time to let down your guard. Wear your mask, keep your distance, wash your hands, and keep well.
