It has been a while since we did a simple Covid19 update, what with reports of pregnant JAs lugging furniture around the courthouse, things have been positively "Broweird" in Miami.
Florida's Dept Of Health Covid dashboard reported 5,520 new cases on Sunday. Miami reported 1,160 new infections and 12 more tragic deaths.
Statewide 7% of the tests administered were positive which probably means we are not doing enough testing.
The all important R rate in Miami-Dade is stubbornly staying above 1 at about 1.06. This tracks the number of people an infected person is infecting. Once the number falls below 1, the virus dies out because every new person infected is infecting less than one other person. The more people who get vaccinated and who continue to wear masks, the sooner that number will fall below 1 in Miami, Florida, and the world (except for some cities and states who believe the whole thing was scam designed to get the former president out of office. Those people will just eventually die out from covid19 and pure stupidity).
Have you gotten your first/second shot yet? We have our second on board and are feeling great.
No appointment necessary shots for people age 16 and up begin at the Hard Rock Stadium today from 8 am to 10 pm. Here is the Herald article covering it all. For kids 16-17 they need a parent and a both certificate (it's not Joes so a folded up 50 isn't going to work).
