Weekend – 42 million COVID cases in the US, 1 million in the last week. Nowhere close to being out of this yet.
Weekly data from The Seattle Times. Cases at a plateau (and hopefully downward trend), deaths still climbing.
Friday – Washington cases may have peaked – above the rate of last winter.
Thursday – “over 90% of young adults have antibodies” – did the last wave of Delta in the UK bring about enough for herd immunity?
Wednesday – Covid deaths and cases in the US are at and above the levels of last winter. Healthcare crisis (and potential triage/rationing) in Idaho.
Tuesday – Pfizer looking for Emergency Use Approval for kids 5-12 and fast following 6 months – 5. That will certainly help with schools being a major vector for infection right now.
Monday – vaccine passports and vaccine mandates are starting to become required. This is the next round of politicisation of Covid.
This time last year – back to school, virus outbreaks, no vaccines “for a year”. BBC stopped doing daily updates
