#COVID19 death in the USA was the #1 leading cause of death for many months over the last 2.6 years of the pandemic - exceeding that of heart disease and far exceeding that of seasonal flu. Will this winter be as bad as the previous 2?

#COVID19 test positivity, cases, wastewater indicator, hospital admits/day, total hospital admits and deaths remain high but all indicate slowing spread. Take advantage of this break to get necessary work done because #CovidIsNotOver is likely to return.

#COVID19 cases and wastewater testing trends remain high but are all trending down in the USA.

In FL schools reopened 10 days ago and #COVID19 appears to be spreading for this population while it is declining in general. Kids need to be vaccinated to protect their futures, their teachers, and their families.

#COVID19 summer surge is likely over. Wastewater, test positivity, cases, and hospital admits/day are all trending down. However, #CovidIsNotOver for the year - a winter resurgence is possible and quite likely.

#COVID19 hospital admits/day has topped out for both adults and kids in the US although we suspect a new rise may occur for kids as schools reopen and the CDC keeps relaxing standards.

US teacher shortage has many reasons but one might be because schools are unwilling to invest in better ventilation systems and masking to protect teachers against surging #COVID19. ‘Never seen it this bad’: America faces catastrophic teacher shortage washingtonpost.com/education…

#COVID19 pediatric hospitalizations this summer for the 4 largest USA states are all higher than they were a year ago just before schools re-opened and cases and hospitalizations soared. This year with less masking will schools re-opening produce more problems?
