  • I share your concerns, I'm just trying to be cautiously optimistic.

    • NY, NY and MA are likely not going to lose their place at the top for total deaths / 1M pop, but SD and ND have slowly climbed their way into the Top 10 at 6th and 7th respectively.

          • Arizona is blowing up with the snowbird arrivals. My delivery lead on this project and his wife (in Phoenix) have both been battling it for the last 8-10 days. Their symptoms have cycled from mild to moderate.

              Actually, North Dakota has been dropping in rank in that particular category. Obviously, the per capita number doesn't go down because once the people are dead, they're dead. But at one point I believe North Dakota was as high as #4 in terms of death per capita (as pointed out to me repeatedly on this board) but they've dropped a few places as Rhode Island, Connecticut and others have stepped up their game.

              That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

              • Population density should play a huge factor into death rates as well. NY is not #1 because, for the most part, it's NYC/LI and then a whole lot of nothingness. But MA is the third most dense state in the country. It makes sense that it has the 3rd highest death rate. Plus we got whacked early, before we really knew how to treat it.

                  I think it's mostly the latter. NY got destroyed because it was first. It would have happened to any major city that was first.

                  Well, any in the US. Singapore has 29 deaths.

                      Right. So far it seems that there's a number of vaccines available out there, they just haven't ended up in people's arms. Why release those second dose units they're holding back if they haven't even got the first batch used yet?

                      It doesn't seem that there are production issues so far, so I don't believe there are shortages, but the feds haven't been getting the allotments to the states they were expecting, even if they've been slow to get them in people's arms. But as you say, what if all these people do get the first dose, and then it's weeks beyond the scheduled time before a second dose becomes available?
                      What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?
