Can you name 500 US cities and towns? What about 300 Canadian municipalities (cities, towns, villages, etc.)? For what you can name, can you picture their flags?
NAVA New American City Flags Survey Analysis Visualization
A few days ago, I shared a data visualization I did for the North American Vexillological Association (NAVA) to support their international press release on a flag survey they did in late 2022. Today, I have the analytical one ready, intended more for research, or to find things to research and answer among the results.

NAVA New American City Flags Survey Results Visualization
A few days ago, the North American Vexillological Association (NAVA) released results from their New (since 2015) American City Flags Survey to media in the 312 cities who had flags in the survey. They also released the results to select other media outlets they have relationships with for decades. Supporting this news release was a data visualization I did to show the full results in an interactive way, including images of the flags discussed.

Americans Will Be Stunned at their COVID-19 Numbers Soon! (An Educated Estimate)
So will the rest of the world unless you’ve been piecing things together.
Next to no testing for weeks with sufficient number of cases going around, from government direction to a health care system that doesn’t incentivize doing so.
People can spread for 5 days without having any symptoms, never mind once they do and still don’t get tested.
People ignoring social distancing and actually bragging about it! Though they’re not ignoring stocking up on toilet paper, apparently, and bragging about it, too! Typical American bravado of we’re better, can’t happen to us, or at least me, we got it covered, etc. We’ll see about that, one way or the other.
So how much will be the shock? My best guess from learning about the DOTS model for spread, with parameters for COVID-19, is it’s going to easily outnumber China’s peak by summer, if not sooner, pending how much testing will actually be done. It’s easy to say you don’t have a lot of cases, and be “honest” about it, if you don’t test to know… kind of like now.
But please do NOT spread like fear mongering rumour. I’m not claiming to be an expert. I just believe I have enough to know to put out a plausible guess, to see if that self-assessment is correct, or incorrect, and to what extent.
So this is “for the record” to look back upon.

All jokes aside on the term and name, this is a very real phenomenon, which is why you should learn to think about, be aware of, and use this term!
