    Nowhere left for Covid to go to mutate into a deadly variant, says Oxford vaccine creator

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/nowhere-l...175101965.html

    Covid is unlikely to mutate into a much deadlier variant because there “aren’t many places for the virus to go”, the lead scientist behind the Oxford vaccine has said.

    I'd argue that both NY and NJ had to deal with the pandemic early when things were out of control while Florida had plenty of time to review the situation and make plans accordingly for dealing with the virus in facilities....which continues through today. It isn't pure numbers. I don't think there is much of an argument for an opinion of the state doing a good job or even a better job than what went on and goes on in the NYC area.

    I did see a warning somewhere to only get a booster of the same kind as the original shots.

    The report does not say but it must be for only a month because the number is small compared to the NJ cumulative number for nursing homes which is at 8.5K. And NY is even higher.

    1st case of COVID in American Samoa arrives on Hawaii flight

    https://news.yahoo.com/1st-case-covi...011046980.html

    American Samoa, a U.S. territory in the Pacific, reported its first case of coronavirus on Friday.

    The territory’s acting governor, Lt. Gov. Talauega Eleasalo Ale, and health officials said the islands’ first case of COVID-19 was in a resident who returned to America Samoa from a trip to the U.S. mainland and Hawaii earlier this week.
