COVID: Need death data

| December 30, 2020 1:00 AM

So Gov. Little and the state health care districts continue to quote sterile numbers as a tool of COVID-19 management. Well, this is still a bit like saying one has properly managed what one is wearing, but not noting the fact that one isn’t wearing anything below one’s waist!

The missing garb with COVID-19 data is age demographic categories for those who’ve been hospitalized and died, and comparative percentages to the gross numbers being reported. CDC releases national data on this, e.g., Why not state and local?
