    U.S. records ~480,000 cases yesterday...woohoo, we're #1! And that's JUST the ones we know about...it could be 1 million, 1.5 million, 2 million, who knows??

    At this rate everyone should have COVID by February

    Yeah, we just jumped up to 16K+. I think our record was just above 20K during the winter surge last year.

    Hospitalizations just crossed the 1,000 mark as well.

    The two potentially positive stories I've seen is that Omicron is both milder for vaccinated folks and Omicron infection appears to provide some immunity against Delta.

    We're nowhere near knowing what the case load we're seeing means in terms of hospitalizations and deaths, though.

    My 81 year old dad and 82 year old uncle took my wife and I to the Wild Animal Park in San Diego over our holiday trip down there. It's pretty much all outdoors and they went maskless the whole time. They're both boosted, as are we, so I guess we'll see how well this all works in an outdoor setting, as the place was pretty packed.

    Our statewide cases topped the 1000 mark two days ago, and yesterday's numbers hit 2200. Pretty huge for us.

    But, we have 90% vax rate, everyone is being encouraged to get boosters (they are shortening the booster intervals as well), and we have a masks indoors requirement.

    We have very low hospitalisation rate and the death toll remains at 7.

    Yeah. The state of Queensland has a death toll of 7.

    So Iím sure you appreciate what I mean when I had that realisation last week that I will catch COVID eventually.
