CORONAVIRUS UPDATES

As of 2021, I extended this color chart to reflect the full CDC mortality count since the U.S. Patient Zero on Jan. 4.*

People will talk and write about the year 2020, 2021, and COVID-19 for a long time. I hope this color-coded chart will be helpful.

So! How well are you doing so far?

UPDATE: *As of April 3, 2021, the CDC has decided that Patient 0 in the U.S.A. did not occur on Jan. 4, but two weeks later in the week of Jan. 18 with three separate Patient Zeros.

Mutiple media sources report that the first COVID-19 death did not occur in the U.S. until February 3, 2020, but as of April 2021, CDC maintains that C-19 deaths occurred in January.

NYT reports that the first death by COVID-19 in China happened on Jan. 11, 2020. CDC reports three deaths in the U.S. by Jan. 18, 2020. NYT maintains that the first death in the U.S. did not happen until Feb. 29, 2020 - Leap Year day. NYT also maintains that, due to the inherent incompetence of the Chinese Government, precautions, cautions, and other measures to limit the spread of COVID-19 were intentionally bungled by the Chinese bureacracy.
A Timeline of the Coronavirus Pandemic (Way Back Machine at archive.org).

National Public Radio (NPR), claims that the first death in the U.S. was both on Feb. 29, 2020 in Seattle, Washington, and Feb. 6, 2020 in Santa Clara County, California.

The Center For Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP) of the University of Minnesota, confirms the first two U.S. COVID-19 deaths on Feb. 6 in Santa Clara County, California.

This is not meant to be either a damning or glib statement regarding conflicting news from various sources. What's important to remember is that no one source has all the answers and believing otherwise is a matter of faith. The spread of such faith in single sources for news leads to misinformation.

Throughout the 14 months of doing this graph, and the 10 months of making it public here, I arbitrarily locked the updates whenever I felt a curious change took place. Please note that my curiousity factor in archiving these frozen moments is due to my personal filter and so empirical.
