Such a remarkable change: In February, covid deaths in the US topped 5,000 on the worst day. Yesterday, with two-thirds of adults at least partially vaccinated, it was 250, a 95% drop.

It really is but also worth noting that 250 per day comes to over 90,000 deaths per year. Even now it's much worse than a common flu.

Was it really 5000 deaths on the worst day? Or was it 5000 death *reports* on the worst day? Reports go through periods of delays and catching up, and the catching up can result in large single day numbers because the deaths occurred over more than one day.

We must not desensitize. 250 deaths is still 250 too many. It’s a lot of people dying that shouldn’t. @potus is still too soft on open borders, mass testing, contact tracing and quarantine !

Contact tracing? That’s so 2020 😂

So let’s get this straight; when we didn’t hit 70% vaccinated, it was because “Biden fell short of his goal”. When there’s a “remarkable change”, no mention of Biden at all. Gotcha.
