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.
  • May 15, 2020 : Bulletin : Moving to weekly statistical updates
    From here forward this web site will update once per week. While South America and India are still ramping higher much of the rest of the world is quite or quieting down. Most states in the U.S. have a new infection count that has rolled over. Notable exceptions are California, Illinois, Arizona, Utah, New Mexico, and Wyoming.

    After 8 weeks of quarantine, it seems like many are simply throwing their hands in the air and saying, enough is enough people need to get back to work. We "hope" that can be done wisely without a second wave showing up. [Our hopes were soon dashed as after Memorial DAy rates exploded in many U.S. states mostly in the South and the West]

    For sure there will be periodic outbreaks. Maybe we can snuff out many of those events. What happens in the fall? Some say SARS-Cov-2 comes back with a vengeance, while others point to the fact that its cousin viruses did not do that. Time will tell.

    I do believe by fall there will be other successful treatments for Covid-19 beyond Remdesivir. Several companies are already in clinical trials on humans with vaccines, many of them fell confident that they have a successful vaccine in their hands. It would be remarkable if we had a vaccine, but early 2021 does not seem out of the realm of possibility.
