I just downloaded the latest data from Ontario’s site. Over 553,000 records. I correlated the data by age, deaths and cases and overlaid the charts to get this illustration. I also was able to plot the deaths by city and visually illustrate this using Excel. It’s interesting to see that younger people saw the majority of “cases” but by far, the lowest mortality. This proves we really don’t need to concern ourselves with positive cases that Doug Ford keeps reporting. Positive cases are not an indicator to be used for deciding if we lock down or not.

As a naturally curious person with an analytical mindset, I have found myself drawn to the complexities of data presentation and the impact it has on our decision-making processes. I am particularly intrigued by the potential for mismatched framing to mislead in areas as diverse as health, politics, and finance. Beyond the desire to access accurate information, I believe in the importance of clear communication and aim to help others grasp the nuances of absolute and relative risks. Continual learning is a cornerstone of my philosophy, and I strive to stay updated with current events. This is reflected in my active participation in discussions on various topics, ranging from the pharmaceutical industry to the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic. My hope is that my ability to think critically and commitment to uncovering the truth can offer something of value to readers. Please note that while I strive for accuracy and clarity, I'm always open to other perspectives and willing to engage in respectful discourse to broaden my understanding and appreciation of the complexities around us.
