Curious that you chose not to go with daily new cases which is more reliable and more current (death lags).

Now that COVID-19 is running rampant through nursing homes and other communities, the Swedish government has had to backpedal. Others who may be tempted by the “Swedish model” should understand that a defining feature of it is a higher death toll.
We do not do this with the flu, which killed 80,000 primarily elderly Americans in 2017.
Many of whom were vaccinated.... This is a manufactured crisis at this point and I'm still trying to figure out the reason why.
Follow the money. Large, incompetent companies were bailed out.
It seems as if this will need to be judged over the entire course of the the virus, months/years, pre-vaccine.
We have a new flu strain now.
To be clear, we have a new "cold" (SARS) strain
It is really hard to not compare it to the flu though. We've had less deaths than a bad flu year without a vaccine. What is the big deal? We've likely had less flu deaths now because of this as well. I still struggle to wrap my head around WTF is going on right now. Nothing adds up.
