Christmas and Weekend – The UK mutation is everywhere; reported by the UK because of good virus genomics teams. Some delays in reporting new numbers because of Christmas and the weekend – but Washington State continues to look bleak. Graphics from The Seattle Times.
Thursday – Call for whole of England to move into Tier 4 immediately. Almost 40k daily cases in the UK. Lots of breaking the travel ban happening.
Wednesday – 1M vaccines given in US so far.
Tuesday – UK positive cases up by 18k!
Monday – slight dip in WA case numbers – which is encouraging. Massive spikes in the UK. More vaccines arriving.
