The SARS-CoV-2 Pandemic - A Utah Perspective
March 14, 2021
The 7-day average of new cases of Covid-19
The infection rate in Utah and much of the United State stopped going down this week as a plateau is formaing at 500 new infections per day.
Where we go from here largely depends on (1) continued good behavior, (2) increased vaccinations, and (3) little influence from the SARS-CoV-2 mutations
The seven day average of the number of Covid-19 deaths
Deaths are again showing a slow downtrend.
Data on the progress of vaccination in Utah
Yesterday we reached 1,000,000 doses of the vaccine injected. 11.4% of Utahns are now fully vaccinated.

While the United States has now plateaued at a rate of 60,000 new infections per week. Somehow several nations are in the throes of a new spike in infections. Leading the way are France's  167,794 new cases, Italy's 155,656 new cases, and Greece's 16,000 new cases. Data suggests that Germany and Sweden may soon join in this outbreak. In Asia, the Philippines and South Korea both continue to have elevated infection counts. In South America, Brazil again reported MORE CASES than the United States. Brazil rose to #2 in the world in the raw infection count moving India to number 3. It is unclear how the virus variants may be playing a part in these outbreaks.

Highlights of the Pandemic
  • Most outrageous statement by any U.S. Politician: Governor Newsom of California said 56% of his state would be infected. That would be about 22 million people. Three weeks after his statement, the state has 0.01% of its citizens infected I can promise you that will not happen. So far California is a shining example to the nation with a 0.04% infection rate (April 7).
  • On April 7 Dr. anthony Fauci, the leading epidimeologist for the U.S. government has complemented Utah effort at social distancing,even though our infection rate is at 0.06%, somewhat above California's rate.
  • I was wrong that the virus does not like hot weater based on many tropical counties having small case counts. As it turns out they were just doing a great job limiting infections
  • Much of the U.S. opened too early at the end of May, thinking the worst was over, at that point too many people assumed it was all over and everything could return to normal. They turned out to be "dead" wrong.
