## Day 100 of World Wide Covid-19 data.

## Finally, the **New York Times** published graphs that show the severity of the Coronavirus death rate compared with average weekly death rates. Here is the graph for New York City, which shows during the peak of the Covid-19 Crisis there were 6,000 more deaths per week than expected from the average weekly death rate, which was approx. 1,000.

## The death rate was 6 times the average death rate. That is a terrifying statistic and explains why we are all in lockdown or are slowly coming out of lockdown. Meanwhile, in the rest of the world death tolls are still increasing.

**Excellent Covid-19 stats update** **here**.

## Many statisticians are using 3-day and 7-day averages to track the Covid-19 death and infection rates worldwide.

## Mathspig is using the total average of deaths per day since stats were first published from 22 JAN 2020. When this average drops … that will be a sign for cautious optimism. But not yet!!!!

Tarantino, being a connoisseur of Fake Blood, used several types of Fake Blood in the film Kill Bill II ranging from good splatter to free-flowing blood. According to one fanzine, in this film, Uma Thurman killed 88 opponents with a sword. So the numbers(above)are in the right ‘blood-soaked’ ballpark. More survival math (The Hunger Games)** here.**

## USA UNITS below. METRIC UNITS here.

# BEAR STATISTICS

**Weight: 550 lb **

**Height: 8’ 2” **

**Top Speed: 35 mph = 51 ft/s **

**Weight: 1,500 lb **

**Height: 8’ 2” **

**Top Speed: 22 mph = 32 ft/s**** **

**Comparing these speeds to the fastest man on earth, Usain Bolt:**

**Usain Bolt:**

**Top speed: 27 mph = 40 ft/s **

# Bears are not dangerous:

………………………………………………………………………

**In fact, more Americans die each year from choking on their own vomit than are killed by bears.**

**More death stats here. **

**Nevertheless, bears are very fast. So you can see why Park Rangers offer the following advice:**

More information at Mountain Nature.

**The reason for waiting until the bear is 15 ft away is to make sure the spray doesn’t disperse in the air. If the Pepper Spray is too spread out it will not stop the bear.**

# BEAR STATISTICS

# Grizzly Bear

**Weight: 250kg**

**Height: 250cm**

**Top Speed: 56kph = 16 m/sec**

**More bear stats here. **

# Brown Bear

**Weight: 680kg**

**Height: 250cm**

**Top Speed: 35kph = 10m/s**

**More bear stats here.**

**Comparing these speeds to the fastest man on earth, Usain Bolt:**

# Usain Bolt:

**Top speed: 243kph = 12m/s**

**So Usain Bolt could out run a Brown Bear but NOT a Grizzly!**

# Bears are NOT as dangerous as:

**In fact more Americans die choking on their own vomit each year than a re killed by bears.**

**More death stats here.**

**But bears are very fast so Park Rangers recommend the following survival tactics:**

# Kilauea erupts in Hawaii MAY 2018.

# The amazing maths of volcano eruptions.

Once lava flows are established new RIVERLETS can run on top of the original lava flow at great speed.

The fastest Lava flows recorded were in Hawaii in 1950 when Mauna Loa erupted. The lava traveled at 6 miles (10 kilometers) per hour through thick forest. But once the lava flows became established and good channels developed, the lava in the channels was flowing at up to 60 miles/hour (97 kph)

# Can you out run a lava flow?

**You are 2 km from the volcano rim and start running.**

**V**_{L} = 97 kph = 1.6 km per minute (k/min)

** = 60 mph**

**V**_{H} = 18 kph = 0.3 km/min

** = 11.2 mph (miles per hr )**

# GRAPH:

# How long will it take for the lava to catch you?

# SIMULTANEOUS EQNS:

# How long will it take for the lava to catch you?
