Without any details, it's impossible to assess what this means, a minor delay or a major side effect, or something in between.

There are fortunately two separate vaccine trials in advanced stages, so if this fails there is backup.

It will be interesting to see who lines up first for this, I presume first responders/medical folks would get priority.

"We" might be getting some important general learnings about how to devise a vaccine against a virus in all of this, thinking positively.

The problem with children I think is their being contagious and infecting more vulnerable folks.

So, GA partially reopened late April, and not much happened, and a lot of places stayed closed.  The increase started mid-June, which coincides with two weeks after the protests, but we're apparently not supposed to correlate those actions.  So, six weeks after a partial reopening, new cases rose dramatically.  The count peaked in late July and hospital capacity was being strained seriously, some places reported 105% usage.  And then it started to decline, and now is at about half what it was late July, six weeks later.

To explain this by invoking "better use of masks and distancing" seems strained to me, it's not what I'm seeing anecdotally.  Car and foot traffic are almost back to normal now.

My area under the curve hypothesis is consistent with these results.

France has gone way up, though perhaps is peaking now.  Sweden of course, well we know what happened there.

Had a Covid test done yesterday, as I have a procedure coming up on Friday and they would not do it without me being tested.

I don't have Covid (again). So that's good. Happy to bring that rate of positivity down for Florida - assuming Illinois reports my result as being a Florida resident.

I know there are people who have had it twice (not a big number), but I'm really not concerned at all about getting it. We are doing the right things. Same people every weekend, who are also doing all the right things.

This one was a nasty test. They swabbed my throat for about a minute. I coughed a lot.

Results in 10 hours. Not bad at all.

Car and foot traffic are almost back to normal now.

Our automatic traffic counters show that in Minnesota, statewide volumes have rebounded but are still running ~10% below the historical mean. However, there is some variation by district.

10% below would indicate most aren't hunkered down in their covid bunkers

Inside the loop here, freeway traffic is probably off 20% or more.  Outside the loop, it's probably close to normal, 90+%.  Still a lot of work from home if you work downtown, and of course with no conventions a lot of downtown is basically shuttered anyway.

I don't know where airport traffic is, half normal would be a guess.  That is the largest employer in the state I think.

The suburbs appear to be "cooking" about full out, the few times I venture out in the hinterlands.

I'd say we're back up to maybe 85% of normal traffic here in the ATX.  Definitely the majority of people are out and about. They're just not going to bars and rock concerts.

Speaking of rock concerts, this Friday I'll be going to hear live music for the first time since the coronas hit the country.  It's a local cover band that my next door neighbor sings for, and they'll be playing an outside biergarten with tables well spaced.

How come folks can go to an outdoor concert with no raised eyebrows but no one is allowed  in a football stadium

even at 25% normal for spacing?
