The trend of Recovery-Rate (Rt) for the last 12 days has shown a silver lining amidst gloomy cloud of 100,000+ Covid-19 deaths. The Rt was on 14th May - 78.54%, and on 22 May, it was 80.50%. 26 May had Rt of 82.68%. Increase in Recovery Rate (Rt) in 8 days from 14 May to 22 May is nearly 2% (1.96%). Increase in Recovery Rate (Rt) in 4 days from 22 May to 26 May is slightly more than 2% (2.18%).
Rt of 2% is now taking half the time than it took previously. It means, next 2% Rt shall take only 2 days,i.e., 28 May. Then, Rt shall become 84%. It shall become 86% on 29 May. Then, it shall take just 12 hours to become 88%. It shall be 90% in next 6 hours. By 21st hour, Rt should be 92%. It shall be 94% by 22.30 hours, 96% by 23.15 hours, 98% by 23.37 hours and 100% by 23.48 hours! Which means, if trend of time required for Rt of 2% becoming half continues statistically, the USA shall have achieved 100% Rt on 30 May...
But, practically speaking, Rt increasing by 16% in a matter of just 1 day seems impossible.
So, the more judicious interpretation would be - 2% increase in Rt every 2 days may become a consistent pattern. If that happens, we may see the bridging of differential Rt (100-82=18) for the USA reaching 100% from 82% on 26 May in next 9 days,i.e., 4 June, 2020.
Of course, the reality may or may not tally with the statistical conjecture deduced above; partially or fully. But, what it certainly does show is: Things are looking better now, we are certainly out of Woods and the USA shall certainly see almost 98-99% Recovery-Rate by middle or 3rd week of June, 2020 if the present statistical trend/pattern continues.
This is a welcome sign which means many things: Rt is improving, healthcare system is becoming more effective by every passing day and Corona-19 virus is degrading in its scope and lethality in terms of its continuously decreasing Mutation-Rate (Mt). Of course, the contents of this brief research paper imply also, inter alia, we must not let our guard down in our unparalleled fight against Covid-19...!
