As previously reported India had rocket propelled swords in the late 18th century!
I can't tell if Microsoft wants me to use Edge.
Cases and Deaths by Country Yesterday
Cases and Deaths by US County Yesterday
This post is updated daily with global and US county level coronavirus data from Johns Hopkins University. Four videos show both cumulative and daily progression of the disease together with four images that show a snapshot for yesterday.
Cases and deaths are shown simultaneously using blue for cases and red for deaths. Where both are high a region will be a shade of purple. Regions with no data are dark gray.
The daily incremental visualization is useful to see the history and current state of the spread of coronavirus. Each region is shaded based on the highest number of daily cases and deaths for that region. For example if the highest number of deaths reported on any day in San Francisco county is 3, then any day that has three deaths will be the brightest shade of red. This shows where COVID-19 is relatively bad but should be used to compare regions.
The cumulative visualization is shaded relative to the highest total death and case count for any region. This does show the relative severity between regions (based on total deaths and cases, not relative to population).
As the location and date of the peak in daily and cumulative cases and deaths change over time the videos will be different each time you watch. Bookmark this post and check back for daily updates.
(This is the third version of this post as I have changed the data source and methodology several times. I usually preserve the previous version of any post but the changes are large enough that in this case I have removed them).

If you're going to ask for something be direct, don't beat around the bush.
So I'm confused, Microsoft. Do you want me to use Edge? After installing updates Edge wants to 'Get started', on a nice modal with no cancel button or even any little x to close it. Must be some mistake right, not quite ready for prime time if they forgot the 'Don't get started' button. Maybe I'll try it when the kinks are worked out.
Ah, right clicking the icon and choosing close would work, right? Nope. Feels more and more like malware.
You can kill it from task manager so at least someone was paying some attention to usability.
Don't I remember some settlement with the DOJ after an antitrust judgement for forcing browsers on someone? That was a while back, must be remembering a different company.

Use of Force (Scot Harvath #17) by Brad Thor
I've been trying to put my finger on why Scot Harvath is only OK and I think it's because he's so awesome that he never really suffers from any setbacks. Everything kind of clicks into place for him and he always remembered to bring the right tactical dodad for the job. Nearly there...
Bone Silence (Revenger, #3) by Alastair Reynolds
The Revenger series comes to a close and my only regret is reading the books when published - with a sizable gap in between it can be a challenge to come back up to speed. It's a thrilling swashbuckling ride and wraps up the mystery of the quoins and the occupations. I hope he comes back to this universe at some point.
