Covid Tracker 12.18.2020

  • The top line in test results took a big dip off a really straight upward trajectory. Deaths per positive test remain low compared to the early months.
  • The timeline for the vaccine is record setting and of some note is the fact that while two vaccines are approved, one of the vaccine trials has been abandoned. 
  • In a, as per usual note…two people have told me that they “heard” about severe side effects from their media sources. A thorough review of credible resources yielded zero major side effects. There are some small percentage that experience some fatigue and soreness at the injection location. 
  • No one is getting the flu according to CDC. In 2019 there were 25,000 lab confirmed cases. The annual average is around 12,000 confirmed lab cases. This year it is around zero.
