Zorgi Score Calculations

Some general comments on the Zorgi Score

First, the Zorgi Score, or ZS, is not a predictive model. It is not like Rt, the current rate of transmission of the virus. Since I am not a virologist, epidemiologist, or scientist, it isn’t my place to construct a predictive model. However, I do have the credentials (even if they’ve only been established over the past 100 days) to describe what is happening now in the data, what has happened over the past few weeks, and what the trends are. That doesn’t require epidemiological knowledge; it simply requires the ability to look at raw numbers and describe which way they are moving.

So ZS is basically a numeric representation of how seriously yours truly would look into a locality to see what was going on, and my overall assessment of how conditions regarding the virus are in that locality. As you read the tables below, you can make up your own mind whether you agree or disagree with my observations and how I judge them.
