On Election Day we were at 95,000.
My mindset heading into Election Day was that 100,000 cases / day would be nightmarish enough that a significant number of people wouldn’t vote. But it didn’t happen, I don’t think, given that Trump got 70M+ votes and the lion’s share on Election Day.
Now 200k / day and yeah, I see a decrease in activity in my area but interestingly not anywhere near what I saw in Spring. We were in the neighborhood of 30k cases / day in Spring and it looked like a post apocalyptic movie.
Just some observations. We’re basically living out the 1918 flu pandemic cycle. I’ll bet that huge second spike they had was also partially due to fatigue with restrictions, along with winter temperatures setting in. So 100 years go by and it happens again, in spite of so many advancements in technology and communication.
well, i mean, the path of the narrative might be similar but the death toll of that one was considerably higher with a considerably smaller population
