COVID in King County, charts per city (Dec 3, 2020)
I have produced charts of new cases of COVID-19 as
- 7-day trailing averages
- scaled to cases per 100k.

All of my charts and tables are shared in a public Google sheets document:
King County appears to have dropped below the Washington State average since the last few days of November.
Seattle itself is well below the county average.
King County cities ranked as of 12/3/2020
- Only cities with population > 5k
- All of USA, King County, Yakima County in June, and King County at the last recent peak are included as reference points.
Charts for top 5 cities
I chose these the average and 100k transformations to help readers identify how COVID-19 is trending in each chart and to allow readers to make fairly direct comparisons city-to-city.
These charts compare each city against the entire county. This allows us to say whether or not a city has generally been doing better or worse than the rest of the county. I am using the trailing averages and trend line comparison to mitigate the way that testing patterns have changed since the early months.
I generally refrain from speculation about the reasons for each county’s performance in this post and concentrated on simple language: above vs below average and a month to month comparison.
