  1. I very much like the updates. However, I don’t get some of the math. Are the university cases counted in the total cases or do they comprise a separate category? Of the 110 Princeton confirmed cases 61 are active and 45 recovered, what about the remaining 4? It doesn’t appear that the fatalities are counted in the 110. Is there an explanation that I’m missing?

    1. Yes Hugh, we don’t get the math either, unfortunately. These are the numbers provided by the town. We have asked several times about inconsistencies when one does the math, but never get very satisfying answers. Some days the male and female breakdown does not add up to the total, or the age breakdowns don’t add up to the total. We can only figure staff are busy and miss some details.

  2. sometimes if a person has several conditions, the cause of death is not obvious. also if a person has multiple addresses, their “home” may not be obvious either. the data is imperfect.
