Stats help to Prepare well...Facing the Pandemic for Health Care

Updated: Jul 12, 2020




The #activecase numbers are very significant for looking at adequacy of #hospitalbeds


The #doubling of active cases is trending with increased #leadtime.


It has been improving from 11 days to 18 days to currently trending at 30 days.


By end of June it may be 50 days & by end of July it may be 90 days. Deduced by expecting a certain higher rate of recovery percentage.


My guess is by September end we might be seeing #downward #trend, ie,#reduction in active cases.


Means, by June end we will have 1.9 lakh active, by July end 3 lakh active and by August end it may be 3.5 lakh active


This means that we need to #rampup our hospital beds accordingly.


The #distribution across the #country has to be based on respective #states #infections rate increase and #recovery percentage


My #caveat is that, this is just a crude attempt for a #prediction looking at our past #statistics of infections rate and recovery percentage increase.


Of course this will be influenced by the #testing quantity per day. If that gets increased faster than the current rate, the figures will change


Idea was to #pindown a #figure for #preparation.


Hope govt must be having much more accurate #predictions both at #aggregate level and #granular level
