First caveat: I created the first chart (based on numbers I received from the manager), so errors are possible despite my efforts to be accurate.
Second caveat: we do not have good data sets because testing is not yet available for widespread use. The charts below are based on those tested after showing symptoms.
The data below are the same in each chart.
The first chart shows the number of cases reported as presumptive positive in Teaneck. Despite all of our efforts, cases will continue to rise.
But — the second chart shows the rate at which those presumptive positives are doubling. The second chart is on a “log vertical scale”, which provides equal intervals for doubling effects (i.e. the space between 5 to 10 is equal to the space between 50 to 100). The second chart also contains two exponential fits for the data sets.
What the graph shows
They started to double within a predicted time-frame of 2.09 days. That appears to have slowed to 5.7 days (thus far) through self-isolation measures.
Teaneck’s Mayor Mohammed Hameeduddin called for self isolating ourselves on March 14th. Look at what started to happen on the chart between 3/14 and 3/21.
Bottom line: Self isolation and washing our hands WORKS.
This will provide our healthcare system time to #FlattenTheCurve…. but only if we keep it up.

Tedesco: County to Open COVID-19 Drive-Thru Test Site for Bergen County First Responders and Health Care Professionals on Sunday
Hackensack, N.J. — Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco has announced that on Sunday, March 29th, at 12:30 p.m., the County will open a mobile, drive-thru COVID-19 test site for symptomatic first responders and health care professionals who live or work in Bergen County only. The drive-thru test site will be located at Bergen New Bridge Medical Center at 230 East Ridgewood Avenue in Paramus, N.J.
Only symptomatic first responders and health care professionals who live or work in Bergen County will be tested at this drive-thru test site and must provide accredited identification.
To be tested for COVID-19 at the drive-thru site, first responders and health care professionals must be screened by first completing a brief survey located at https://www.newbridgehealth.org and seeing a Telehealth doctor. Patients will then be given a confirmation code number that they will present at the drive-thru testing site.
“Bergen County first responders and health care professionals who are symptomatic should please take advantage of our mobile, drive-thru test site at Bergen New Bridge Medical Center,” said County Executive Tedesco. “These are the men and women on the front lines who are working to keep our 1 million residents safe from COVID-19. The sooner we help our first responders and health care professionals recover, the more people they will be able to treat.”
