    I work with the data every day. The numbers started dropping well before the vaccine was offered outside of the Tier I group (and before any of the Tier I's had their second dose). Not sure why we're seeing this; if it could be due to a lower herd threshold than they estimated, whether the Tier I's first dose was ultra effective along with lower herd threshold, etc. One thing I know by working with this data for the past 9 months, is that having everyone isolated didn't necessarily correlate to 'flattening the curve'. It will be interesting to see the studies that will be released in the near future

    30% is over a million peeps. Has OK received that many? I have no idea but I thought it was much less to date.

    Correct..... but we don't have complete herd immunity right now either. The numbers are declining as the vaccinations are rising.

    Mayo cited a study that Israeli study that showed ~75% efficacy 15 days after the first dose with the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines. It rises to ~89% after the second per the study they cited.

    Interesting. I was thinking it was more in the 250k range.
    half a mil is around 15% of the population I think. +/-

    You might be recalling the number that have completed both doses. It's around 204,000.

    Cold weather naturally decreases outdoor activity for most folks, especially the beach party crowd (lol, largely "irresponsible youth" as it were).

    So... intentional or not, there's gonna be less group contact in cold weather other than holiday gatherings, which we're well past.

    your a ****ing liar .. when presented with actual evidence that you made a mistake. you dodge and tell more lies.

    I've already posted detailed technical data on why COVID tests generate high false positives and why RT PCR tests are NOT suited to ID any disease. if you actually understood the topic you would understand why COVID rates have fallen.

    I don't hear of the Covid positives being sent home with only a suggestion of "go to the ER if you feel like you are dying. I hear of Covid positives getting 2 or 3 prescriptions.
    That in itself will have significant impact on the number of hospitalizations.

    Note: I didn't say it is the only reason for the lower numbers.
