Really, not sure it is that clear. The increase is small and this is clearly cherry picking stats by excluding the two states that make the statistics show that there is no increase.
Clearly there are states that are increasing, but implying that the count in the US is increasing is simply incorrect if one does not decide to only include the states that show make the graph go up. That is like saying that in the first part of the episode that the US was not having any cases because we will exclude Washington State, New York, etc.
I have a friend in FL who is panicing, and he should be worried. But FL, the most "dangerous" state at the moment had a step jump up and then a slower increase every day after that. It is increasing, but it is not exponentially increasing, which is what we must avoid.
It is not a surprise that as states open up, as we have large gatherings and as people go back to work that we will have the cases double, tripe, etc. We will. What we dont want to see is trends like 1000, 2000, 5000, 15000 on consecutive days, that indicates that we need to "flatten the curve" again. Having it go from 500 to 2000 and then go to 4000 over 5 days and then hover around there is bad, but honestly it should be expected when people stop taking the precautions and thousands of people gather together on the streets and people get too close to each other in buildings for long periods of time.
I am going to be more interested to see what happens as the hard hit states (NY, CA, PA, NJ) re-open. Will you see them start to go exponentially up, or just geometrically. PA is now down at a number that is almost what one would call a minimum, what happens when on July 3rd a good part of the high density part of the state goes "green"
