            • Europe has had 200,000+ cases a day for 3 days. France, Spain, U.K., and Italy look like they did 6 months ago. Countries that had it under control now....not so much. It looks like we will be folowing suit.


              • In NJ, we are still nowhere near where we were in the Spring when we peaked at over 4K daily news cases, over 400 daily new deaths, and over 8K hospitalizations. NY is also well under its Spring Peak.

                There was almost a panic back then about the possibility of running out of hospital beds although it did not happen. We are in much better shape now to deal with the coronavirus.

                • The NE is not the problem.....



                  • This would be something if true.
                    "Hospital workers who got flu shot vaccinated were significantly less likely to develop #COVID19 than those who did not, early study shows."


                    • NY, NJ, and CT revised the quarantine list (as they do every Tuesday). They added California and Massachusetts to the list bringing the total up to 39 states plus Puerto Rico and Guam.

                      It is noted that NJ, PA, and DE now all hit the threshold that would put them on the list too, but they are excluded from the list because of the “interconnectedness” of the region.


                      • I think you're wrong about Massachusetts. MA appears to be in the same category as NJ, PA and DE.

                        Neighboring state Massachusetts now meets the criteria for the travel advisory, in addition to Connecticut, New Jersey and Pennsylvania - however, given the interconnected nature of the region and mode of transport between the states, a quarantine on these states is not practically viable.


                        • Meanwhile....

                          One word: Masks. North Dakota has the highest covid death rate per capita in the world right now and the lowest mask-wearing rate in the United States, between 45 and 49 percent, expert says.



                          • meanwhile, in Britain.....

                            PM under pressure to toughen restrictions after highest death toll since May
                            Advisers are said to have warned that hundreds could die every day for at least three months.

                                NJ and NY have apparently announced differently about Massachusetts. We shall see. Note that Rhode Island has long been on the quarantine list.
