Data glitch confounds coronavirus totals In Orange County, state

UC Irvine has some other ideas on how to study the data trends. It is a professor of statistics who is leading a team intent on studying the trends of coronavirus in our area. Vladimir Minin, a professor of statistics, leads the team responsible for designing and developing UCI’s new COVID-19 statistical trends website. “Every county reports its coronavirus stats, but useful knowledge can be gained by holding up the numbers against other counties and normalizing by population size, which is what we have done,” Minin says.
