concern about fitted model
I am concerned that the model does not fit the data and also that the jumps in the fitted model do not make sense, considering the blurring in the underlying process. I was alerted to this by someone who pointed out the graph for Canada on page 84 of the supplementary material. The disconnect between the fit and the data gives me skepticism about the larger claims in the article.
I also have concerns about the data, similar to those raised by the peer reviewers regarding selection effects in who gets tested.
