The Virus Returns
If you want remarkable, up-to-date stats on the Coronavirus pandemic, get a subscription to the New York Times-- it is worth it.
Right now, though, that read is a little scary. There are more cases now than there were at any time up through October of last year, eight months into the pandemic.
The sad part is that we seemed to be on our way to winning. Things were going back to normal. And now we are headed the other way. Yesterday my school announced that vaccinations will be mandatory in the fall, and the University of Minnesota decided to require masks for class in the fall. Sigh. I really thought we were past this.
