My i s c & a aggie wife should be getting the second shot in a couple weeks.  It should have been pretty close to right now, but unsurprisingly, our various layers of bureaucracy have resulted in some mild chaos and confusion.

Sweden update:  Things are improving after a peak around Christmas in new cases.

They have 566,000 REPORTED cases and a 10 million population.  If we multiple that by 5X, obviously we have 25% of the country with resistance due to having the disease, still short of herd but perhaps enough to slow the spread some.

Georgia is approaching a million known/suspected cases now, ten percent of the population.  If you use a 5x multiplier, you start to near herd I.  Maybe.

Known cases are dropping rapidly.

WOODBURY COUNTY, Iowa — There is some good news to share in the fight against COVID-19 in Woodbury County.

The Siouxland District Health Department is reporting its lowest positivity rate since April 2020 in its latest data trend report.

A county's positivity rate is determined by taking the total number of positive tests that come out of the total tests done in the county over a two-week time period.

In the latest report, SDHD shows a positivity rate of 5.5% in Woodbury County for the week ending January 24.


over 13,000 cases population 100,000

Is it possible Southern California's problems result from visitors from Mexico?

In Texas our border counties have a much higher positive rate





Along with Mexico/Southern California, Portugal happens to be another distinct area where daily cases/deaths are still peaking despite the past few weeks of globally declining Daily Cases, Active Cases, and Daily Deaths.

From CNN International (Video Below): "Portugal, now closing its borders for two weeks...its nationwide lockdown has been extended to February 14th and officials say that hospitals don't have much space left.”

And here's a key point for the number of us, after all the discussion of masks and distancing, who've recently noted "We were gonna get hit hard no matter what" (@Cincydawg): "For a country that mastered the first wave of Covid 19, this is an alarming site. An epidemic so ferocious the ICU wards are overwhelmed…Across the country the hospitals are struggling to cope with the rapid surge in cases with doctors telling CNN they estimate 25% of new cases have been caused by the variant discovered in the UK."

Keep in mind Portugal was one of the nations widely praised through the summer and into the fall for keeping cases low and deaths under 2500, that is until November. I quote @Cincydawg because I'm also of the sense that, wave after wave, eventually Covid's relentless spread would break through previously successful health precautions (see Germany too).

Georgia is almost down to the July peak, less than half the December peak.
