patterns in Covid new daily cases

It goes up for 3-5 days and then it goes significantly lower for 1-2 days. Does this mean reporting is different on weekends? Illness doesn't get a weekend.

The weekend effect has not gone unnoticed, as in the linked article.

If you were sick and your first/only option were to go to a hospital, would you choose Friday night? Saturday? Sunday? Or might you try to hold off until Monday? With Covid there's some element of choice for many people who admit themselves.

Yes. That's why a 5 day rolling total is more important.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
