Happy rainy Sunday!
And you know what that means… it’s bragging-rights-and-$100-to-your-favourite-charity contest time!
Yes… whoever guesses closest to the total number of C19 new cases (Saturday, Sunday, & Monday) that’ll be revealed tomorrow wins! Just enter your best guess in the comments below.
To clarify the rules… there will be exactly one $100 prize awarded, and it will go to person who guesses the closest answer first. If there’s a tie (and there are many versions of ties), whoever was first will win. It might be worth it to scroll down the list of guesses before placing your “hopefully-not-a-duplicate” entry.
Here’s the recent data, leading up to today, to help you a bit…
Apr 24,25,26: 2,729
May 1,2,3: 2,174
May 8,9,10: 1,759
May 15,16,17: 1,360
May 22,23,24: 974
May 29,30,31: 708
June 5,6,7: 482
And just to confuse things… the last three days of numbers before the weekend — the appropriately-named collection of WTF: 481
Hmmm… basically a flat line all week, on average. Indeed, hello Delta variant… what do you have in stock for us?
Fortunately, probably not a notable increase in hospitalizations or death… but certainly in cases. Not ideal, but at least it makes for a more-interesting contest.
