...."report cumulative confirmed cases based on the cases’ first date of public posting. As a result, the “number of new daily counts” (derived by successive subtraction from these reports) often refers to the number of cases published instead of those lab-confirmed on that date. In comparison, insurance claims indicate a “date of service”, which is typically closer to the testing date. Accurate dating of cases is critical for modeling, analysis, and forecasting."
