    Russia had 10 straight days with deaths under 1000, and last 2 days under 900. From 1200+ in November, 1080 in December. Less than 50% vaccinated.

    I see that if Georgia the state, was a country, it would rank 13th at 2,961 at deaths per million.

    9 of the top ten countries with deaths per million are in East Europe, formerly communist and many SSR's. #1 in World (and will probably stay) is still Peru.

    The Rt for NJ fell to 0.92.
    The NJ spot positivity test rate was 11.14%.
    Here are close to 2021 year-end numbers to compare to 2020. Both exclude China but include probable deaths for NY, NJ, and Bergen County. Note that we only had the pandemic for about 10 months in 2020.

    But will they die from it? Omicron symptoms are far less severe, more like a bad cold. If it doesn't kill at anywhere near the rate of previous variants, will it turn out to be a blessing? - if herd immunity comes much sooner than we thought.

    "Most infections are described as mild, with recoveries usually within three days, he said. The most common early symptom reported is a scratchy throat, followed by nasal congestion, a dry cough and myalgia, or aches, manifesting in lower back pain."
    I was more uncomfortable yesterday from allergies and soreness from the previous days workout.

    We'll have to wait and see. Increased transmissibility can vastly outweigh decreased severity. Covid-19 is significantly less severe than the original SARS from 2002 which had a death rate of about 10%, but SARS ended up with around 8000 cases and 800 deaths worldwide, whereas Covid has notched up over 800,000 deaths in the US alone and still counting.
    In the capital of Australia, cases have increased dramatically with the spread of the omicron strain and reduction of restrictions in the state which surrounds us. However, despite the surge in cases, hospitalisations have declined since the earlier delta peak and ICU admissions are currently zero with deaths also non-existent.

    I will say that with an estimated 99% of 12+ vaccinated, we may be better placed than many other areas in the world. Also, our 5G reception is otherworldly and we've all discovered an urge to build Bill Gates cathedrals to better worship him!

    And some recent articles have said Omicron may be a blessing because its displacing Delta as the dominant strain of the virus, which was far more lethal
