Is Massachusetts In A Post-Thanksgiving Coronavirus Spike? It Depends On Who You Ask
WBUR - 12/08/2020
Sam Scarpino, assistant professor of network science and head of Northeastern University’s Emergent Epidemics Lab, said the case increase in Massachusetts has been building for months.
“If you just basically fit an exponential growth curve to the data in October and then just run that line forward through November, it kind of cuts right through the middle of the testing patterns during Thanksgiving and pretty much exactly predicts the test positivity rates that we’re seeing over the past few days,” Scarpino said.
