    Transmission rates in the Midwest seem to have peaked around Columbus Day and then declined until around Veteran’s Day, and then started creeping up little by little everyday since.

    26 of 148 deaths are in Cook County. So that county has the most deaths, but 122 deaths are in other counties, many more counties. you know how some on this site talk about pols not winning counties statewide? this is a race you don’t want to win. Mask up. Socially distance. stay inside. wash your hands.

    Perhaps the death rate would lower if the high risk groups were better elevated in communications. We don’t recommend that men get mammograms, despite the fact that some men need them. Focusing on women hits the target audience and saves lives.

    Reality, I was briefly confused and thought you were saying more women die of Covid than men. Then I realized that was an extension of your analogy. I remember early in the pandemic, a higher percentage of the dying were men, now it seems more even. Not sure what to make of that.

    I actually think the news is really out there that old people are super susceptible as well as people with diabetes, hypertension, obesity, cancer…it’s just that when you add all that up you get to a majority.

    In McLean County, 961 residents tested positive in the past week.

    Seven people under the age of 1
    One hundred eleven people ages 1 through 17
    Forty-four people ages 18 or 19
    One hundred ninety-seven people in their 20s
    One hundred thirty-eight people in their 30s
    One hundred fifteen people in their 40s
    One hundred forty-nine people in their 50s
    One hundred thirteen people in their 60s
    Fifty-nine people in their 70s

    And 11 people in their 90s.

    At the COVID-19 testing site at the McLean County Fairgrounds,603 people were tested on Thursday, McLean County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) reported on Friday. Illinois Department of Public Health has placed a cap on the number of daily tests at community-based testing sites. The cap for the fairgrounds site, operated by Reditus Laboratories, is 750 tests per day. (source: Pantagraph)

    Thanksgiving numbers will probably show up next week.

    The peak from Thanksgiving is still coming. Then what happens when people get together for Christmas?


  7. - cermak_rd - Friday, Dec 4, 20 @ 2:37 pm:

    –Maximus–

    Peaks on peaks with responsible people who can staying in and responsible people who can’t staying in as soon as they can and hoping that’s enough to make up for the others.
