Where's the Christmas surge!?  I was told there would be morgue trucks, hospitals running out of oxygen, and makeshift hospitals.  Cases in the teens is not a surge.

Surge ended around 12/16.

Death surge did not.

The older you are, the more deadly COVID-19 becomes and white Americans make up the largest share of the older age brackets than any groups. (Pennsylvania has one of the country’s oldest populations.)

But when age is factored in, people of color have a COVID-19 death rate of double or more the rate of white and Asian-Americans, according to APM Research Lab.

This means younger Americans of color are dying and driving their mortality rates above white and Asian-Americans.

When you account for age, Black Pennsylvanians have a COVID-19 mortality rate that is 2.4 times as high as the rate for whites, according to APM calculations through Jan. 5, 2021.

Hispanics/Latinos are most likely to have contracted the coronavirus, per state data; although it is important to note the state only reports race data for 60% of its cases and ethnicity data for 31% of cases.

I cannot trust the data, especially when they know test results are flawed.  https://www.npr.org/2020/11/06/929078678/cdc-report-officials-knew-coronavirus-test-was-flawed-but-released-it-anyway

The death tolls are misleading as well.  They are counting both those who die WITH covid and those who die FROM covid.  There's a major difference there.

Now we have this - https://www.desertsun.com/story/news/health/2021/01/17/california-official-recommends-pause-specific-lot-moderna-covid-19-vaccine/4201516001/  Early results show you are 85x more susceptible to experiencing reactions to the covid vaccine than the flu vaccine.  Older folks need to be protected the most.  Older folks have a much harder time fighting off these reactions.

Just like the official garbage that wearing  masks will end the pandemic.

Check out California where there is a high degree of mask wearing.

  • 477,929 doses of the vaccine have been administered. Please note that this does include vaccine administration through the CVS as part of the Federal Pharmacy Partnership.
    • There are 340,947 people that have received one dose (partially covered).
    • There are 68,491 people that have received two doses (fully covered).
      • The math results in 477,929 doses administered.

A spreadsheet of facilities that have received vaccine can be found here.

The Wolf Administration stresses the role Pennsylvanians play in helping to reduce the spread of COVID-19:

  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • Cover any coughs or sneezes with your elbow, not your hands.
  • Clean surfaces frequently.
  • Stay home to avoid spreading COVID-19, especially if you are unwell.
  • If you must go out, you are required to wear a mask when in a business or where it is difficult to maintain proper social distancing.
  • Download the COVID Alert PA app and make your phone part of the fight. The free app can be found in the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store by searching for “covid alert pa”.
