It would appear the CDC is cooking the numbers so badly now

that 1point3acres is nearly useless. They are steadily falling behind Worldometers in total US deaths. I believe it is about 2,000 at this point. I've noticed it steadily grow since about Monday or Tuesday. Have others noticed the change also. There have always been variations, but this seems pronounced.

but they HAVE been ending up with totals that mesh with four other sites I monitor.

AND their data is not dependant on CDC as a single source.

is growing. I've always seen variance but they usually caught up and remained fairly consistent. I don't see that this week.

I usually look at the numbers from Worldometer, Johns Hopkins and Infection2020. What sources are y'all looking at?
