  1. You could have an overlay of a darker cover of current active and current hospitalizations on the chart. Showing total cases on a chart is kind of misleading, because people will relate that to active cases.

    1. We are not trying to mislead anyone, all of the info is in the article. The chart on the cover is also provided by the Niagara County Public Health Department. Your observation in noted. Thank you.

  2. We will alter it for the next release to have a header with more specifics. I don’t think anyone was mislead though. That is not what we do here.
