My wife and I split up in the grocery store.

If it's any consolation I understand shopping can cause tensions in even the best relationships.

There have been a lot of political decisions where it has been claimed the decision makers were too slow to act. There was a feeling that it had been clear for many weeks where the numbers were going before a decision was actually made, or that the patterns from other countries made it clear where their country was heading.

It's easy to make claims with hindsight, but I feel that it was clear from the numbers that the need for drastic action was inevitable. What were people with more nuanced understanding of data thinking? Did the data provide justification for the delayed decisions?
