    Do you also have vaccine resistance? Or is it vaccine availability?

    It's both. But this beginning of a spike is due to summer carelessness.

    So things seem to be settling down.
    Although, Russia is only 10% fully vaccinated (compared to 44% for US and 25% for EU) so there is definitely grounds for concern.

    You are exaggerating. Most eligible people got the vaccine by now. 44% of the population are fully vaccinated, and over 52% got at least one dose. And US vaccination rate is still over 1 million per day.

    US is still one of the most vaccinated countries, especially when you exclude very small countries like Cayman Islands, San Marino or Malta. Also, how in the hell is the vaccination rate in Gibraltar 116%?!

    It's Trump's fault that e.g. India has a very low vaccination rate? Exactly how?
    And note that US has one of the highest vaccination rates and that Operation Warp Speed was started under Trump.

    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.
    Much more likely he'll take his place among the mostly forgotten US presidents. Millard Fillmore who?

    Lower vax rates are mostly in rural areas, but they also bump into fewer people on a daily basis, so their R is lower for that reason alone.
    Pfizer is approved above 12. Aren't summer camps mostly a middle school thing and not for younger kids?

    There is some fluctuation, as you'd expect with case numbers low, but I can't really see any evidence of an "uptick".

    We just dropped below 15k/day on June 3, almost exactly two months past the failed @Derec prediction.
    Hey, so I was a bit late, but at least my prediction went in the right direction. Unlike your doom and gloom prophecies.
    Are you still predicting a new spike in cases either this Summer or Fall or have you given up on that yet?

    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.
    Parts of the US are at effective herd immunity I would say. And vaccination rate in the US is still a bit over a million per day. So a lot of people are still getting vaccinated. We will probably not reach Biden's goal of 70% of eligible people by July 4th though, but we will reach or at least get very close to 50% of the total population being vaccinated by then.

    Report says 90% of new infections in Moscow is delta variant.
    This is insanely fast.

    It's what happens when a more infectious variant comes along.
