I’m not a doctor or scientist, nor am I a right-winger conspiracy person or any of that noise. I’m just putting this out there to help people search for some info.

I’ve made two errors, and I see others making the same errors, and I suspect many are not noticing these errors (because I see few comments pointing them out), so I hope this helps people make better sense of the numbers we’re seeing. The errors I made were:
- Mixing up the case fatality rate (CFR) and the infection fatality rate (IFR)
- Misunderstood a plot, and saw a drop-off in deaths, not realizing it was an artifact of a delay in reporting.
