    Another death record:Florida breaks COVID-19 deaths record fourth week in a row as infections slow down

    Missing data:How many people have died of COVID-19 in your Florida community? State won’t tell you

    Overall, Florida reported 100,249 new COVID-19 cases, down 22.4% from the previous week's tally of 129,202.

    The number of Floridians killed by COVID-19, 48,772, now eclipses the number of American soldiers killed by hostile forces during the Vietnam War, 47,434, as reported by the U.S. military.

    That last fact is truly stunning....... It makes such a powerful statement for anyone willing to listen.

    I've come to believe we will never ever untangle all of the information surrounding this issue. Too many organizations reporting too many numbers with too many different definitions of what something is.

    Lies, damned lies, and statistics.

    and in the weirdness that is the programming that runs this board, when you put it up, it was approved, no problem. I read it yesterday afternoon.... somewhere in the interim it got the bounce (for no apparent reason)

    Pardon my sarcasm, but "we" should strike a deal with China.

    The good news today is that NJ reported its Replacement rate (Rt) has fallen to 0.99 from its recent peak of 1.51. This is the first time it is under 1.00 since early July. A rate under 1.00 means the the pandemic is contracting instead of expanding.

    What has been the cause of the delay?
    Like Australia we were slow to get started. Because we were in a good position as far as covid-19 cases our Government didn't try to exert pressure to get early supplies.

    As of yesterday 30% of eligible population have had 2 Pfizer doses. 58% have at least 1 dose.

    We are on track to be fully vaccinated by year end, except for the anti vax nutjobs.
