Let’s be honest. We try to pretend we’re all out on the internet doing ‘research’ and other high-minded activities. But the truth is that we’re out here checking out models. And I found one that you absolutely have to see. Don’t bother shutting your office door or shielding your screen, because this beauty comes from NPR: Is The Worst Over? Models Predict A Steady Decline In COVID Cases Through March. “The most likely scenario, says Lessler, is that children do get vaccinated and no super-spreading variant emerges. In that case, the combo model forecasts that new infections would slowly, but fairly continuously, drop from about 140,000 today now to about 9,000 a day by March.” Of course, we can’t be sure of anything. As we’ve learned already, when it comes to Covid, appearances can be deceiving. Also… and this is really for Governors intent on fighting for the virus and not against it … we still want to minimize deaths. (I know that sounds radical to some.)

+ “If you look at the industry-wide expansion of production capacities over the past six months, enough doses should be available by the middle of next year so that everyone on this earth can be vaccinated. Boosters should also be possible to the extent required … Those who do not get vaccinated will immunize themselves naturally, because the Delta variant is so contagious. In this way we will end up in a situation similar to that of the flu.” Moderna chief executive sees pandemic over in a year.
