Covid -19 Update

Something to be thankful for:


After 15 months of watching the pandemic spread, there is much good news on the U.S. COVID front in June 2021.

Inside most states, the government is reporting the death rate for known COVID-19 cases is 0.1%, or less.

The reason to celebrate doesn’t end there, as most statistics paint a picture of a virus now under control.

As of June 17, the 7-day moving average of reported cases was down this year by 94% from the peak in January—tumbling from more than a quarter million new cases per day to now just 14,000 cases (down 6% from the previous week).

The 7-day average of COVID-related hospitalizations continues to plummet, too. It was down 13% this week compared to the previous 7 days—And has decreased every day since April 19th.

This is all according to the CDC. The Washington Post had more good news to report.

Daily reported cases nationwide this week fell 23.7%, while daily deaths fell 31.6% And hospitalizations dropped 8.8%.

Only 5 states have a daily death toll per 100k inhabitants higher than 0.1%. Eleven states have 0%.

One of the most shocking statistics brings sweet relief to hospitals. 13 patients per 100,000 residents in Washington D.C. represents the highest concentration of hospitalized COVID patients in any state.

The highest concentration of patients in intensive care units per 100,000 residents in any state is 3—And 5 states have zero.

Now that’s the kind of “COVID Tracker” a person could look forward to every day.

When you add the number of people who have gotten at least one shot to the number who have had covid And recovered...we may well be at the low threshold for herd immunity....meaning the odds of uninfected And vulnerable people coming in contact with a someone who has covid And not showing symptoms is low.

Sadly, a friend of my brother's died last week...another who refused to wear a mask And was certain Covid was a hoax. The guy was 60 And had a family And teen kids.

The good news being, once the U.S. Has eradicated the disease at home, it'll be in a far better position to help fight the disease overseas.

Charity begins at home, etc.
