This is from the Financial Times link:

What can be considered with this "good news" would be tempered by the age of the patients with so many being school children now ill. Also, the therapeutic care that the months of experience the pandemic has allowed the healthcare folks. Of course, the virus strains (omicron looks weaker). And, importantly, vaccinations!

Of course, also, this chart provides no comparison between the long-term effects between C-19 and flu patients. FURTHER, there are no guarantees re the possibility of new strains.

My understanding is that the US has not kept pace with the UK in such a dramatic change. The University of Oxford says that there is not a tremendous amount of difference between the 2 countries' vaccination rates but a difference of 71% to 63% would probably account for quite a bit relative to continuing fatalities.

Maybe, it will at sometime fall to just a horrible, horrible flu season level ... at least, in the developed world.

the Michigan hospitalization numbers have continued to fall, but they also decided to stop reporting the number of cases because they just have no way of knowing how many there are and the number they are reporting is likely not at all accurate:

i hope it will fade out completely. might be another short term blip up due to yet another new variant. we'll see, i'm hoping that everyone already sick from the first O variant won't be as easily infected by the new one.

Michigan cases, hospitalizations and daily death toll coming down. still been a pretty viscious week, but at least the hospital workers are getting a chance to breathe...

the last time we were at a downslope count like this was last May 5th and that was a whole different type of Cov-2 with a longer time for hospital care or to die. this current peak has a virus that clears more quickly so instead of this taking a longer time to come down i'm thinking it might not take as long to see the bottom before we level off.

"900,000 of our fellow Americans have died of COVID. And we'll likely have 1 million deaths by April. If everyone had gotten vaccinated and boosted as vaccines became available 300,000 Americans would likely still be with us."
Ashish K. Jha, MD, MPH, Dean, Brown University School of Public Health

Nah, he's just making this up. A career with over 200 research articles published in peer-reviewed journals but still, his family immigrated to America when he was 9 so nobody needs to take him seriously. (sarcasm)
