I’m tired of seeing just the cases and deaths statistics. Every once in a while a number of people recovered has been encouraging. But, I’d like to see other statistics. Here’s one that’s really interesting. Google and Unacast are analyzing cell phone location data to determine how well we are staying home and obeying the quarantine.

The Uncast numbers are the ones that I saw first. Their visualization is really cool. Here’s Florida’s current result:

You can see New York in comparison. The big question is going to be whether or not we will follow their pattern.

Finally, my biggest curiosity is how Wyoming will fare. I didn’t spend much time researching, but at first glance, it looks like they are scoring the worst. So, will they have a bigger, more out of control outbreak?

Google seems to break things out a little more into categories of where people are going. Here’s Florida’s current report:

I almost thought New York started reducing their movements a little sooner than we did, but it’s hard to tell with the different graphs. I think in most areas, it seems like they reduced their movement more.

Here’s the Wyoming Report. From Google’s view, I can’t tell a big difference from Florida. Transit and Parks are different though.

So, you’ll have to keep watching and see how we do with sticking to this social distancing effort.
