Time to double the number of deaths Sunday, June 7: US 72.1 days, NJ 88.8 days, NY 284.4 days

Why did the doubling time accelerate in New York?

In the last few days, the doubling time of death has decreased – an apparent acceleration. Why is that? Well…more people are dying now, in particular in New York. It’s not apparent in other states. Could be a backlog of reporting, in which case the doubling time will get back to lengthening soon. For now, we must assume that there’s still a problem.
