#Thought this was Done!
COVID DATA UPDATE 8/03/21
It is the 4th wave. Cases ↑ 62.5% week over week ending , and in UK mortality of new cases increasing, but that is lagging as cases from earlier high wind down. Surprised to see cases ↑ from 2 600 for the week ending 7/20 to a rate of 5 815 ending 8/3. Assuming the case increases continue at the current pace of 62% per week, that is over 2000 cases per day in Canada by 8/17/21.
We have to continue to vaccinate. Perhaps we can stem the tide sooner but expect considerable case loads by September.
I thought this was done! I know we want it to be over, but it is not over.
