⊗ 12/1/21: County reporting continues to be inconsistent, logging for the first time fewer deaths than previous day: Yesterday 972 cumulative deaths, today 969: September from 101 to 99, August from 67 to 66. Previous days numbers continue to change frequently, therefore we have instigated a buffer for reporting of no sooner than 2 days before as the previous day numbers change nearly 100% of the time.

Daily death rate falling rapidly. All averages falling. Chart↓

All averages rising steeply and rapidly; e.g., weekly average has spiked from 1.4 in early August to a current 1.58. Weekly Graph↓

November monthly average already higher than October with the average monthly death rate rising from 1.42 at the end of August to the current 1.59. September had the third highest average daily death rate with more than 3⅓ deaths per day on average including 4 days of 6 deaths (8/31/21 also had 6 deaths reported). Monthly Graph↓

11/1 entry on improving numbers negated by County continuing to report higher numbers on previous days including previous months. We continue to report the death rate in the past 24 hours as the difference between the total deaths reported for the previous reporting day. Today we are reporting 8 deaths in our headline: the total reported yesterday was 925 v. today's 933, though County reporting 1 death yesterday and 2 deaths day before yesterday with a number of other previous days rising back to September. Data Table↓

⊗ 11/05/21: County revising previous death totals daily. Death totals up 5 today from yesterday though County reports only one death in previous 24 hours. Earliest day total revised back to mid-August. We continue to report the change from the previous day, i.e. we report in out headline above 5 deaths for the new total change instead of 1. Date reported for previous 24 hours remains as County reports. i.e., number of deaths per day most recent date same as County stats. both in Chart↓ and Data Table↓

⊗ 10/25/21: County death number reporting inconsistent across reporting portals. Numbers vary between posted table, downloadable spreadsheet and API. Nearly all previous days are reported as 0 deaths while the next day reporting reports larger numbers for previous day. This has not happened in reporting with County before the past month. Numbers coming in from deaths of residents not in the Washoe County at the time of their passing and slow reporting from county hospitals may account for this. Previous month deaths change near-daily, sometimes from one number to another and back to the first number the following day over and over again.

This makes previous day number of deaths reporting unclear. For example, one day recently the previous days deaths changed the following day from 0 to 3. Another day, a total of 10 deaths were added to the monthly count but the previous day was reported as 0 deaths. In that instance we reported previous day deaths as 10 more, though 10 people did not die that day.
