COVID-19 Update – August 25

Dear Colleagues,

From the CAA Board :

“We are aware that the following CAA members / supporters are candidates for positions in the Society of Actuaries:

  1. Nazir Valani – Board
  2. Stephen Cameron – Product Development Section
  3. Stephanie Banfield – Reinsurance Section

We encourage you to consider voting for them if you are eligible to do so.

We also encourage all CAA members, especially younger members, to volunteer for service in the CAA and their other actuarial associations, whether for elected positions or to serve on committees. 

It builds networks, develops you personally and professionally (CPD), and increases your marketability”

I am sharing a few articles which I found interesting.

Interesting links & reading:

Note: The new cases and the new deaths shown are daily average over the last 7 days.

As per a request, I have shown 2 new columns and omitted the Total Tests column. I now show “Daily average Tests” and a ratio of new cases to new tests over the week. These is just for illustrative purposes. The data is based on what is reported/uploaded by worldometers. 0% is where the ratio is less than 1% and blank is where the data was unchanged at source. I have also moved Puerto Rico to this list.

The information on this page does not necessarily reflect the opinions, standards or policies of the CAA. Data included in graphs has been obtained from several sources the accuracy of which cannot be guaranteed by the CAA.
