I expect a slightly less dramatic surge than last year, but there will be a surge from the current High level, nonetheless.

The unvaccinated in our family were going to get together for their own Thanksgiving after I made it plain I didn’t want them here. That fell through because half of them came down with covid before Thanksgiving.

32. And yet there's been no surge in total deaths, regardless of cause.

About average for this time of year. Go to "Choose jurisdiction" in this CDC chart (below), and see how each state does on week-by-week figures. MA is holding steady, as are most states, actually. So these new cases aren't (yet) turning into deaths - perhaps they're milder, or perhaps the definition of "case" being used is a positive test, regardless of symptom status. Hard to sort things out among the welter of numbers being circulated.

36. True, but MA isn't fitting that pattern.

The spring surge in cases doesn't precede a rise in deaths, and the highest rate of cases (early Jan) coincides with, rather than precedes, the highest rates of deaths (comparing strugge4progress's chart to the CDC's).

Updated: 3:38 p.m.

... about 80% of Utahns who are dying from COVID-19 “have chosen not to be vaccinated.” The other 20% are fully vaccinated and have breakthrough infections.

Webb noted that patients with breakthrough infections “have, on average, at least four or more different chronic medical conditions like asthma or emphysema, diabetes, obesity, heart disease. And a significant number of them have immune systems that are compromised.”

About a fifth of those who die from breakthrough infections — about 4% of total deaths — “are immunocompromised patients who can’t respond well to the vaccine.”

“We really need people to understand their risk and their risk factors” ...

12. Illinois Is A Mixed Bag

I just looked at the IDPH Restore Illinois site yesterday.
7 of the 11 regions still have 20% or more ICU beds available. 3 were under 20% but more than 15.
One region was under 10%, but flattening.
No region had a positivity rate over 4%, but none were under 2.
Regions were about split evenly between rising & falling cases.
The state as a whole is rising, but less steeply than in the other bad spikes.
On Edit: Worldometer is showing US deaths already at 798,520. Daily deaths smooth to around 1,800 each day.
I wonder if there's a typo in the snip, because this rate takes the country over 850,000.
800,00 appears already a certainty, long before Christmas.
