It's literally my day job to track infectious disease and my year has been hell. I spend 40-80 hours a week for the past year and change analyzing death, side effects, compounding issues, associated procedures, comorbidities, and while I have hunches, this damned thing is still throwing me for a loop. I have hundreds of millions of claims data with associated covid data(one case may result in more than one claim for repeated visits), every diagnosis on the claim, every procedure performed, their age/gender demographic, and while there are definitely trends, there are far more outliers than there are with the flu or any other disease I've seen. You expect the outliers to be a very small percent but they're larger than expected. That may be because treatment methods aren't standardized, no vaccine in the early days, or many other reasons. But the point is we just don't have enough data points at this point to know.I don’t understand how it all works.
