I’ve been faithfully recording the monthly COVID number tally for over a year. I began on 2/5/2020. Now we’ve nearly reached 3/5/2021.

When you look at any one set of case numbers, en face, they are difficult to fathom. But when you look at them on a month to month comparison over the entirety of a years span, the leap and jump of them is even more grave.

Andre Uhlrich has been plodding along with his Pandemic Insights as well.

The numbers seem to be on a declining pace at the moment. Is it because of vaccine administration or is it an other dip in disease? Time will tell.

In the mean time, continue to Wash your hands, Wait 6 feet and Wear your masks.
