    Meanwhile, Florida had 31,758 new COVID-19 cases on Friday, breaking a record for the most cases in a single day since the start of the pandemic in the U.S. in March 2020, according to data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    The previous single-day highest number of cases was in last August, during the height of the delta variant wave in Florida, when 27,802 cases were reported.

    Some Hurricane Katrina survivors have a lower opinion of the Army Corps, but to me the more burning question is whether the vaccine hesitant will be more willing to risk getting an Army vaccine than a Big Pharma vaccine.
    Those air guns will scare off a few people.

    Just saw the latest Matrix movie last night.
    I can assure everyone that the idea that we live in a simulated reality is patently absurd . . . or is that what the Programmers want us to believe?!

    The movie was 'fun', but so convoluted and nonsensical, that even Keanu Reeves looked embarrassed at the silly dialog and behaviors he was scripted to do.
    If we are in a simulation (we are not!), whoever made it up was one bored (and boring) entity.

    I look at it this way. I received 3 Pfizer vax shots. 2 by nurses and 1 by a member of the Army Corps of Engineers. The arm hurt the least after the Army shot.

    It feels like we're characters in a video game or simulation.

    There's a pandemic simulation video game called Plague Inc. (released in 2012, but is having a resurgence during Covid) where the goal is to orchestrate a pandemic that destroys the world, in a race against scientists and governments who scramble to develop and distribute a vaccine or cure. You have to make tradeoffs with severity and transmissibility, while recognizing that faster spreading and greater severity will cause countries to invest more into vaccines and cures.

    You have some ability to affect mutations, and when a new mutation occurs it quickly becomes the dominant strain like what Omicron has done. It's like some higher beings are playing their own version of the game, with all of us as the plebs and pawns in the game.

    The New Year’s (1/1/21) early afternoon cumulative numbers:

    Globally: 83,493K cases & 1,816K deaths
    The USA: 20,213K cases & 349K deaths
    NY State: 991K cases & 37,557 deaths
    NYC only: 431K cases & 25,144 deaths
    NJ State: 483K cases & 19,160 deaths
    Bergen: 47,570 cases & 2,330 deaths

    The above are as close to 2020 year-end numbers as you are going to get. Global numbers exclude China (87K cases, 4.6K deaths) as unreliable.

    NJ: 5,541 new cases.
    NJ has 3,625 & NY has 7,886 hospitalizations.
    The Rt for NJ fell to 0.92.
    The NJ spot positivity test rate was 11.14%.
    For comparison sake, the above is where we were at the beginning of 2021. I will try to do an annual update on 1/1/22.

    By the way, China has reported zero deaths in 2021. It has reported an average of fewer than 1K cases each month but not a single one is reported to have died.

    EU backs Novavax shot as region's fifth COVID-19 vaccine

    https://www.reuters.com/world/europe...ne-2021-12-20/

    The European Union on Monday approved the use of Novavax's (NVAX.O)COVID-19 vaccine in people 18 years and older, giving a boost to the U.S. biotech after long delays and paving the way for a fifth shot in the EU as the Omicron variant spreads.
