Data (was posted here yesterday and you responded to it):First, show your data and your math. Second, given a season in which a significant portion of the earth's people were not intermingling, and most of the rest were wearing masks in public and staying away from public events, all I can say about that is that will result in some strange statistics that fall way outside of control limits.
400,000 - 165 = 399,835/400,000 = 0.9996 (99.96% drop).
I would expect a big drop. This, however, is not “strange statistics”; this is a statistical impossibility. Either flu hospitalizations are being misreported or the NPR data is wrong.
