Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.

WHO downgrades COVID pandemic, says it's no longer emergency

Btw if we look at the excess mortality data, it showed a pretty good temporal correlation with Covid waves/mortality. Similar with UK data. There are also data from many other countries available, e.g. Economist, and latest plots for 100 countries. This would seem to reconcile with bodies like the USA CDC, UK ONS etc. claiming that the vast majority (>85%) of C19 deaths has C19 as the underlying cause.

Easiest is to use the linear trend in deaths over the 2015-2019 interval (be it increase or decrease). Doing so, and comparing all countries up to the present (using models to account for non-reporting in recent weeks / many countries) you get this: https://www.economist.com/graphic-detail/coronavirus-excess-deaths-estimates

There’s also the latest data from many other countries (The Economist), and the latest plots with Covid mortality and vaccine uptake for 100 countries. In various countries it doesn’t look like there’s a temporal correlation with excess.

Additionally, these stats are based on excess mortality stats(not Covid-19 deaths) compiled by the Economist, not exactly a CPC news outlet, and nowhere in their article do they mention the data being suspect.2 projects | reddit.com/r/dataisbeautiful | 3 Jan 2023
The Economist did not use the Chinese Covid data at all. As explained here, they simply look at projected life expectancy in populations vs actual life expectancy. Thus, that actually tracks the total number of people who died as a result of the pandemic, not just infection. So for example, increases in liver cirrhosis from alcoholism caused by lockdowns would be included.
There were approximately 14.83 million excess deaths associated with COVID-19 across the world from 2020 to 2021, according to estimates by the WHO reported in Nature. This estimate is nearly three times the number of deaths reported to have been caused by COVID-19 over the same period.
