    Looks like we hit a million dead right about today-ish.

    We had to work hard at it, but we did it.

    My son was called up to Goose Bay to serve as medical backup to some USAF fighter pilots up from Florida doing low-level flight training last week. After 2 years hanging around nursing homes and ER's as an Advanced Care Medic just a couple of days with Americans from Florida has got him COVID. Thanks Guv DeS. You really make America "exceptional".

    The UK is having a surge in cases and hospitalizations because they're removing all restrictions and people think they should dump precautions and mingle. Much of Europe is wide open now

    Essentially, they are giving up on the unvaccinated. It is what it will be.

    Also rising in Europe. We may be facing a wave of the Omicron subvariant BA.2 in late April or early May. Here’s hoping having original Omicron provides protection because almost half of the US got it.

    The American Covid death count has passed 990,000. This would make that population the 45th largest state in the union - just ahead of Delaware.

    Good trends:

    Nationally:
    • New cases are now down 95% from their mid-January Omicron peak, and the rolling 7-day average is now lower than it's been since last July.
    • Deaths are now down 55% from their late-January Omicron peak.

    In Texas:
    • New cases are now down 94% from their Omicron peak, and the rolling 7-day average is now lower than it's been since early December.
    • Deaths are down 43% from their Omicron peak.
    • Hospitalizations are down 80% from their Omicron peak, and are now below 3,000 for the first time since early December.
    • Maybe most encouraging: the percentage of tests coming back positive is 3.6%, which is lower than it's been since June of last year.

    Nationally, deaths are not dropping again for the moment but rather increasing 16%/week.
