Weekend – 28M fully vaccinated in the US (two shots), WA is still slowly, but surely getting vaccines out. Almost a third of the UK have received at least one vaccine dose. “Hundreds of deaths per day” across European countries; sadly that isn’t newsworthy after the brutal waves of the past year. 90M vaccines have been delivered in theUS, including over 2.4M yesterday.
UK numbers from The Guardian. That massive peak, and the climb into it, seems so long ago.
Weekend numbers from The Seattle Times. A year on – they are still doing a daily roundup and regular stats.
Friday – @YearCovid tweeting last years news.
Wednesday – a year ago was the week of panic buying and stripped shelves.
Tuesday – amidst positive talk about vaccinations and decreasing positive tests and a decline in deaths; there are still huge risks of a fourth wave.
Monday – a year since the first COVID death in the US and in Washington State. It’s still a race against time – vaccinate and beat the variants. CDC/NIH tracking five variants across the US.
