This is a two axis chart. The pink hued line charts the number of confirmed cases recorded in New York City each day. The dotted magenta (bright purple) line is a seven day moving average trend line that smooths out these day to day variations. The green line charts the number of new hospitalizations each day. The dotted green line is its corresponding seven day moving average trend line. Both these series are vertically scaled with the right axis.
The light blue columns show the number of confirmed deaths from this virus each day using the left vertical axis for scale. Please note, the numbers plotted in these columns reflect only the confirmed deaths (tested positive for COVID-19) and do not include probable deaths (as listed as the cause of death but not actually confirmed by a positive test result). The dotted blue line is a seven day moving average trend line that smooths out the variations in these numbers from day to day.
When a city is embroiled as ground zero of a pandemic outbreak, this chart is the kind of daily scorecard that affirms their efforts have not been in vain; that their adopted gameplan has worked.
The dotted blue line charting the confirmed deaths shows a distinct, prolonged decline over the past few weeks. The dotted magenta (bright purple) line representing the confirmed cases is also showing a simlar decrease over the same period. Even the dotted green line of new hospitalizations is seen to be in decline though to a lesser degree.
