Response to Evolve Dammit (Reply #5)

Wed Dec 8, 2021, 09:57 PM

8. I'm in western NY state. The weekly

covid stats get released on Wednesdays. Today's report shows that 75% of the hospitalized covid patients were unvaxxed. That means that 25% of them were vaxxed. My guess is that the 25% are seniors who were vaxxed a long time ago and did not get boosters.

Today's covid stats also show an increased new infection rate, from 11% last week to 12.5% this week. When it's this high BEFORE Christmas, New Year, and the arrival of omicron, I think the mid January numbers will be nightmarish.

I am expecting to see omicron here by Christmas or before. It's moving westward from NYC. A few cases were found in central NY state yesterday. To the north of us, there is an omicron outbreak in Toronto. People travel often between Toronto and western NY.
