The COVID mini-update for Monday is here.
About the only major update from last week is that America’s testing percentage is now on the decline. It’s not a rapid decline, but it is moving in the right direction.
The overall stability of the numbers (27.2% positive tests vs. last week’s 28.8%) does not reflect the situation accurately. The USA is a large country, so different parts of the land are hit at different times. The deceptively steady national number actually includes some large increases and some large decreases. In some states where the Omicron wave hit early (e.g. New Jersey, which dropped 11 points last week) , the rates are dropping fairly rapidly, while the states with delayed Omicron waves have not yet turned the corner, so some of them (e.g. Idaho and Oklahoma) are still rising sharply.
