Kann mir mal eine/r der hier auch vertretenen JournalistInnen sagen, warum in (fast) allen Nachrichten zu Covid19 in Ländern nur die absoluten Tages/Gesamt Zahlen und nie relative Zahlen (pro 100.000 oder pro 1Mil. Einwohner) genannt werden…
Verschleierung oder Dramatisierung oder die großen Zahlen oder einfach nur JHU?

Da laufen dann Millionen in Indien gegen Hunderttausend hier. Tolle Information, denn die Inzidenz 7 Tage/100.000 in DE ist ca. 3 in Indien 14? wäre ~ 2x wie Frankfurt am Main


@vilbi Yes. I'm tired of having to look up populations of various places and do the arithmetic all the time.
I know it's not *accurate*, but it's a lot more useful than some stupid absolute number of deaths comparing e.g. monte carlo to germany. Grrrr.

@gemlog people love records... the fastest... the greatest ;-) ... the most infections and deaths is so a logical result.
But as we both know it has no value beside that for the dead people and theire relatives every single count is a high loss.
To generate value, to calculate individual risc or to differ the countries with high active spreading from those with lower spreading the absolute numbers of countries don't help.

@vilbi Yes, good one. Seems like momo, which I do use euromomo.eu/graphs-and-maps
Doesn't include the continent which contains some of my favourite skin though...

@gemlog this side shows only EU... but I have seen on JHU slso when I remember right some mortality data...
