    Bad news: The American Covid death count has now passed 900,000, and we're on pace to hit 60k for January alone.

    Good news: New cases appear to be starting a declining trend. Nationwide, the 7-day average for new cases is down about 29% from the peak it reached two weeks ago. In Texas, the 7-day average is down about 26% from the peak it reached 10 days ago.

    Bad news: The emergence of the (even more contagious) Omicron "BA.2" subvariant in places like Denmark, the UK and Sweden means that the Omicron wave may end up lasting longer in some places than previously assumed.

    The unit my MIL teaches at has been in medical lockdown for all of January. In December they didn’t have enough officers to even have classes.

    The doctor was all optimistic that he wasn’t positive because the positivity rate there has gone down so much.

    A 74 year old man serving a 14 year sentence for mail fraud at the Federal Medical Center Fort Worth has died of COVID, becoming the 17th COVID death at that facility. It was the man's second bout with COVID. People in prisons are 4.77 times as likely to be infected with COVID than the general population.

    I was yesterday years old when I learned that RFKjr's wife was actress Cheryl Hines of Curb Your Enthusiasm fame.

    Sorry, SFA. Hopefully it's no big deal.

    Thanks. So far it doesn't seem bad. Mild headache, runny nose, some dizziness, generally lethargic. Given how active we have been post-vaccine, we are probably damn lucky to have made it this far without a case in the family.

    We go tomorrow. I’m assuming it will be. He’s tired, lethargic, sore, and congested.

    I hope he feels better soon. My 8-year-old had a very mild case and recovered easily.
