Wow! Wow! Wow!!! It really isn't going down!
Good Low Numbers as more people, discard their masks and forget about all this
incredibly busy where I live, good mix of tourists and locals, things finally back to normal, no doubt businesses are breathing a huge sigh of relief.
Same in most places that it is never going away (completely) - not seasonal like flu and much more infectious. It is always going to be there 365 days a year.
Latest UK data from the office of national statistics has 1 in 40 people being infected.
Yeah, it seems that way. The 7-day average has been going up for a week now. It may well be that this is the new baseline going forward.
Not that anyone would be able to do much about that, even if anyone still cared.
Probably currently at the dip between waves, but even if the cases go up again I imagine deaths will stay low or even continue to decrease.
We aren’t far off the 9 people per day annual average of influenza deaths in Japan now…
I do suspect some will still be complaining about high numbers if/when it drops below influenza as it has done for periods in other countries.
It’s so mild that it isn’t even worth mentioning now
Those are deaths that are causally related to the Corona virus. Or, to put it another way, the Corona virus was causally related to the deaths. You could even say there was a causal relation between the Corona virus and the deaths.
Oh, there's a misunderstanding. "4" is an unlucky number, but not an unlucky digit. I promise you, the number "34" is nothing to be scared of.
