    In the last day the US has seen its first uptick in the 7-day new case average since April. We just dropped below 15k/day on June 3, almost exactly two months past the failed @Derec prediction. Sadly, that prediction was more accurate than the Happy Talk about March 1 seeing <600 deaths/day... we did get there in the latter part of May, but it too is ticking up again.

    We're not at a place of "herd immunity" and the people who have not been vaccinated show no signs of wanting to be vaccinated, so we're all stuck with the results of their stupidity.
    Children are going to camps and going to be herding around, some more safely than others, considering they aren't vaccinated yet. We'd probably see bumps in the south with the lower vax rates. Of course they'd need to test and report it though.

    Well, right now the greatest threat is the variant that has now spread from India to the US. It currently represents 10% of all infections in the US. So, while our domestic issues do create pockets where variants can fester and grow, the lack of a globally coordinated effort will continue to reintroduce sufficiently diverse variants to keep the planet in its current state of infection indefinitely.

    All true. But longer term, it's going to the the persistence of the virus reservoir that poses the danger.
    In all likelihood, the damage the Trump has done to people's ability/willingness to believe science will keep killing millions of people for decades. If not for his propaganda, the whole world might be approaching herd immunity by now.

    Some time after he is long dead and gone he may well take his place among the Pol Pots, Stalins and Hitlers as one of the world's greatest genocidal assholes.

    Does not look great.

    I am looking at the statistics in the small hellhole I am living in. Many days without new cases, then bunch of them (3-5) then again, many days without cases. Looks like they get whole families at once.

    That sucks. Wish the US could help a country out, but we are running into a problem convincing partisan idiots that taking a vaccine to prevent widespread disease that has and would continue to reign havoc over our health care system is a good thing. They are too busy looking at people balancing spoons on their faces on YouTube.

    What is incredible is the vaccine was literally America first (excluding Israel), and many Americans said "Pass". They finally got that American comes first thing and they walked away.

    Sorry for what your Country is experiencing, and can't help feeling that the US response is a contributor to the situation.
