Post #1413: COVID-19 trend to 1/25/2022

Posted on January 26, 2022

Things are going as expected.  Now that all the data reporting artifacts of the King Day holiday are gone, the U.S. is down to about 200 new COVID-19 cases per 100K per day.  No real change from yesterday.

Beyond that, I would like to update my analysis of the impact of school re-opening.  I can’t, though, as irginia seems to have stopped updating the relevant data file (along with several others), for the time being.  I hope that’s temporary, and not a consequence of the change in the Governorship.  I really was kidding when I asked why Virginia couldn’t be more like Florida (Post #1403).
