Step 1
There are 24 Hours in one day i.e on October 30, 2020
we know, 1 hour have 3600 seconds
24 hours will have, \(\displaystyle{24}\cdot{3600}={86400}\) seconds
A.Use the CDC data to calculate the total number of daily infections on October 30th.
Given that the daily COVID-19 data showed there were 1.2 new infections per second
Therefore the total number of daily infections on October \(\displaystyle{30}{t}{h}={86400}\cdot{1.2}={103680}\) infections
Step 2
B. How many deaths were reported on October 30th?
Given that the daily death rate was one death every 107 seconds
which means
In 107 seconds, there will be 1 death
in 1 second, there will be \(\displaystyle={\frac{{{1}}}{{{107}}}}\) deaths
Therefore we have to calculate deaths in 86400 seconds
Deaths reported on October 30th \(\displaystyle={86400}\times{\frac{{{1}}}{{{107}}}}={807.47}\approx{807}\) deaths
