Accord to the Texas DHS coronavirus tracking map, as of today there are1,098 “estimated active” coronavirus cases in Walker county.
However, when you go to the website for Walker County itself, it shows precisely 223 listed cases, which it breaks down as “233 reported – 8 duplicates – 2 not county residents.” Indeed it breaks down those number into individual cases, anonymized into case numbers, sex, and age range.
Moreover, it says that 113 cases have “graduated out” (which I take to mean they’ve had it long enough to be considered recovered and not infectious), meaning there are only 110 active cases, which suggests that (depending on the culling boundary for graduated cases), the state statistics are off by a factor of 5 to 10 times compared to county statistics.
There's a lot more, including really interesting things happening with death data that suggests (to me) that the State government agencies are trying to hide a massive screw up in the Prison system.
Figures don't lie, but liars can figure. Now extrapolate this to the entire country. Heads should roll.
