Every time I turn on the news they’re telling me how many COVID-19 cases are occurring in the world. I figure someone should be doing the same for Chester. Oh, that’s me!

Clearly, the case count is on a steady rise in Chester as most other municipalities in the county are leveling out. Chester has the 2nd largest number of cases and will not catch Upper Darby who leads the county by a mile.

I’ve was trying to see if I could figure out anything by looking at how long it takes for Chester to reach 100 new cases.

The chart below starts when Chester logged it’s first 2 cases on March 26 and ends when we reached 800 on September 21. I’ll leave the analysis up to you guys to see if you can determine a trend. It all seems rather random to me.
