King County Coronavirus Daily Prediction: 5-7

I’m back!

Let’s start with the charts…

The models still have good fit. However, over the past two weeks, numbers haven’t really declined. Here are the last two weeks zoomed-in. Pretty flat.

So what should we expect moving forward? I expect that line to remain pretty flat, even as Jay Inslee starts to open up Washington. “Super spreading” events are not going to take place: big events, large groups, choir rehearsals, etc. While people will be out more, the impact to R0 should be low.

What do the models say:

  • The polynomial model is pretty optimistic, predicting 28. I think the predictive power of this model will drop off pretty quickly.
  • The logarithmic model is predicting 66. Which seems pretty optimistic at this point as well but we’ll see.
