I've been calling this since November. Just like magic, now that Joe Biden is in the White House, COVID-19 cases is going away.
The thing is, the cases were already dropping thanks to President Trump getting vaccines developed and sent out. But you know when this is all said and done the Democrats are going to be praising Joe Biden like he's a god.
You know what's so funny though about all of this is that the flu has miraculously been almost non-existent this whole time. Can someone explain to me how it is that the flu isn't being spread but COVID is? They are transmitted the same way and if you have one spreading like wildfire it's only logical to assume that the other would as well.
Daily cases have dropped 45 percent since the latest peak on January 11, according to data from the COVID-19 Tracking Project. There were 131,341 new cases reported on Wednesday.
Hospitalizations have fallen 26 percent since they peaked most recently on January 12, the data shows, with 96,534 reported in the hospital as of Wednesday.
In addition, as the country headed into February, COVID-19 hospitalizations fell below 100,000 for the first time in two months.
Currently, 92,880 patients are hospitalized with the virus, the lowest figure seen since November 29 and falling nearly 30 percent from a peak of 132,474 on January 6, according to data from The COVID Tracking Project.”
Some health “experts” say this inexplicable miracle is because some people have gotten vaccinated:
“Dr Ali Mokdad, a professor of Health Metrics Sciences at the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), said there are a number of reasons for the decline in case.
One of the reasons for the sharp drop in cases, even if not the primary driver, are vaccines.”
Now there are some people out there who still believe that COVID is nothing more than the flu. I don't believe that's true for a number of reasons. My neighbor is one of them though so I know they're out there. But it does seem very odd to me that flu cases have dropped so dramatically but COVID has continued to show up during this time.
