Covid-19: US Update #5

Almost a year after President Trump declared Coronavirus a national emergency, US Covid-19 death surpassed half of a million on Monday.  500,071 to be exact.  About one-fifth of the world’s fatalities by Covid-19.

As astonishing as the number represents (ie. more than the American lives lost  during the World War I & II and Vietnam War combined), some encouraging trends are beginning to emerge in terms of infection, hospitalization, and death.

Too early to tell if the declines are due to our collective behavioral change, government vaccination rollout, or seasonal temperature effect. One thing is certain, we still don’t have the pandemic under control.  And  now is not the time to let our guards down.

Update 4, here.

To be continued.
