COVID in retreat

Worldwide ... in the single month that should be showing explosive growth ... [b]COVID is in dramatic retreat
In the US, in states moving the vaccine ... there is stark evidence of day over day and week over week reduction in COVID cases.

Hospitalizations, the lagging indicator, is also showing bed utilization reductions.

We were popping over 300,000 cases a day ... just a few weeks ago ... and now both the daily highs and the moving average have moved down to 151,000 and pointing lower.

We ask why?

The vaccine!

And you say "How can that be?"

Those of us who can do statistics ... can calculate that by vaccinating 2% randomly, of a population, where only a fraction of 1% are infected ... will cut the transmission rate in half.

That stalls the virus ... cause it has to expand to survive.

Remember, this is not linear math ... it is exponential math

[b]But ... it is great news!

And no ... contrary to the news media ... we really will not need to vaccinate more than 25% of the population ... to cause the virus to die out.

This is now the beginning of the end ... of the great mask debate
