    Comment



    • From Wa Post.
      https://www.washingtonpost.com/healt...ns-evacuation/
      An investigation reveals...
      "As the first American evacuees from Wuhan, China, touched down at a California military base a year ago, fleeing the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak, they were met by U.S. health officials with no virus prevention plan or infection-control training — and who had not even been told to wear masks, according to a federal investigation.

      Later, those officials were told to remove protective gear when meeting with the evacuees to avoid “bad optics,” and days after those initial encounters, departed California aboard commercial airline flights to other destinations."

        # of cases down again - 17 straight days. Let's hope we can keep that going. Same is true for the world at large for total # of cases by 7-day rolling average.

        • Israel has now vaccinated over 1/2 its population - see https://ourworldindata.org/covid-vaccinations.

          Top nations in per capita vaccinations still 1) Israel, 2) UAE, 3) UK, 4) USA. Europe still lagging.

              • If anyone wants to read a "very" long article about mathematical modeling of the pandemic and how difficult it is, because of so many human factors that are difficult to model, you can read it here at quantamagazine - https://www.quantamagazine.org/the-h...emic-20210128/

                  That is a very long article. I skimmed it all, even after reading the conclusion in about the 7th paragraph, "There is no best solution."

                        Yet the U.S. continues to average 3200 deaths per day for the last 4 weeks. And the new variants are spreading. Florida has the U.K. variant and deaths over 200 a day starting to look like the new norm.

                          As mentioned earlier, deaths lag cases by a few weeks, so any upward or downward trend in cases can be expected to have a similar time lag relative to the death numbers.

                              In NJ, the hospitalizations which had been near 4,000, are now just over 3,000 - a good sign as is the Rt staying well under 1.0. In the spring, hospitalizations were over 8,000.
