Opinion: Americans will increasingly have to make their own judgments about covid-19 risks/WaPo

OMG, the WaPo has published an article that simply makes sense about masking.  CDC just admitted the truth, after 14 months, that aerosol transmission of Covid is a ‘thing.’ CDC’s pivot to the truth, I fear, may be intended to force us to move to N95 masks–a move that has …

From StatNews: Already, there have already been several dozen documented reinfections around the world, though current numbers are almost certainly an undercount.

Cases up 20% while Deaths down 24% since last week/ NY Times

From today’s NYTimes, see the diagram below.  What do I see in the curve?  The slope downward from this last (3d) peak is too steep.  The epidemic curves of diseases generally rise steeply and fall more slowly as the virus runs out of susceptibles.  See the two prior peaks for …
