    New U.S. COVID-19 cases and deaths tick higher, while CDC’s ‘real world’ study shows Pfizer, Moderna vaccines reduce infection risk by 91%

    Getting better...but not, at the same time.
    What I'm worried about is another surge after the holidays and everyone playing in the Summer in crowds.

    Followup...
    'Lockdown' states like California did better economically than 'looser' states like Florida, new COVID data shows

    Interesting statistics...
    Covid tactics worked for the economy too. At least it's an argument vs. those that use the economy as a rationale.

    The big question is what is going to happen next Mid-November through January. Will the virus be gone, or will there be enough unvaccinated people indoors with all restrictions lifted that it will cause another big spike.

    The fact that many people have already had it might help prevent the worse outcome though.

    A silent decimation: South America’s losing battle against Covid — The Guardian

    Meanwhile, South America is being pounded
    Worse than India was.

    I have a feeling a variant will come through the US and Europe…opening up.
    People acting like high schoolers on summer break.
    (I’m guilty of it too…)

    I do think the people who took the antivax will be fine
    But those who choose not to, they’re going to be impacted

    Statistically, they’re already showing this.

    People who have not been vaccinated are getting sick and dying at about the same rate now as they were last year.
    The overall numbers are down tremendously because of vaccinations but if you aren't vaccinated things haven't gotten any better, and with the delta variant spreading they are probably going to get worse.
