As go cases and hospitalizations, so go deaths with a lag. Thanksgiving is starting to have an impact.

Rudy tests positive and immediately gets a bed. The rest of us are getting turned away.

Do the hospital still have “Candy Stripers”? Are any Hooters waitresses out of work? For $5000/day just for the hospital room (don’t worry, it’s insured!) lets at least improve the morale, before the old geezers shuffle off this mortal coil.

Something's off about the quantity vaccine doses under Warp Speed.

Distribution is by states population. Illinois, with almost 13 million people is getting 109,000 doses which is less than 1% of the population. ( A week or so ago, they thought they would be getting 400,000 doses)

That would mean less than 3 million doses for the US.(The DOD a week or so ago was talking about 20 million doses.)

Over-promising and unde-delivering?

This isn't being given enough press:
The Front Line Covid-19 Critical Care Alliance has now developed a prophylactic and early outpatient combination treatment protocol for COVID-19 called I-Mask+. This protocol is centered around the use of Ivermectin, a well-known anti-parasite drug with recently discovered anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties and a rapidly growing published medical evidence base demonstrating its unique and highly potent ability to inhibit SARS-CoV-2 replication.

California tops the state list, but I still see the 7 day rolling average of deaths lagging well behind last year. To accept the ICU data here, we will need about a 40% jump before Christmas in deaths to beat last year. Meanwhile Sweden 7 day rolling average on deaths is in marked decline since Thanksgiving, after peaking far below last winter. I say we are peaking.

Take your Vitamin D. It's about your latitude, so pay attention.
"The study proves no correlation between the country surge date and its 2 weeks preceding temperature or humidity, but shows an impressive linear correlation with its latitude. The country surge date corresponds to the time when its sun UV daily dose drops below ≈ 34% of that of 0° latitude. Introducing reported seasonal blood 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) concentration variation into reported link between acute respiratory track infection risk with 25(OH)D concentration quantitatively explains the surge dynamics."

Not going to peak in the US until January, according to Fauci and IHME.

Mr. Giuliani said in October that he was taking the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine as a preventive measure. The Food and Drug Administration revoked the emergency authorization for the drug in June due to safety concerns. Public-health officials say there is no compelling scientific evidence to support the use of hydroxychloroquine to prevent Covid-19.

prophylaxis of any sort may not be able to overcome a big dose of virus from close contact without masks, IVM has a much better safety profile; the developer of I-MASK plus no longer recommends hydrozychloroquine as I understand it.

Elections have consequences. Campaign rallies and post election celebrations certainly lead to record breaking COVID hospitalizations and daily death rates.

Its unfortunate some of our biggest social gatherings occur in the time period of lowest sun exposure and the resulting drop in Vitamin D levels. Thanksgiving, Xmas, and New Years are really spreading or gonna spread this big time. Its gonna be rough thru April or until we get everyone vaccinated with an effective vaccine. Meanwhile eat Salmon, take your Vitamin D, and hunker down. Excercise, learn how to play a musical instrument, paint, do home improvement projects, etc...

Deaths set a new record today. Final number will probably be close to 3200.
