  • July 1, 2021 - COVID-19 Update.

    As of July 1, 2021, we still don't know who Patient Zero is. China has not been cooperative with WHO investigations and on May 26th, President Biden wants some definitive answers of how the pandemic started.

    The death toll from COVID-19 for the U.S. reached 600,000 on June 16, 2021.

    If you think of March 11, 2020 as the start of the pandemic in the U.S., it's been 16 months with no end in sight. Vaccinations have been slowing down in recent months in the U.S., and many countries are slow in general vaccinating their citizens.

    As of May 26th, 39.7% of the U.S. population has been fully vaccinated. If you look at only U.S. adults, it's 50%, so still not the proverbial 70% (but may need to be higher, depending on how bad the variants are in transmitting the virus) for herd immunity.

    Efforts to get people vaccinated include offering free food and drinks, free trips and a chance to win big playing the lottery. Masking continue to be an issue with some, especially after Rochelle Walensky added to the confusion why saying those vaccinated can rip off their masks.
