U.S. Passenger numbers and daily positive test cases

U.S. air passenger travel has returned to almost 65% of pre-pandemic travel.

The 7-day backward looking moving average of Daily Positive Test cases has fallen below 50,000 and may be at 25,000 by the end of the month.

In late January, Michael Osterholm, epidemiologist to the media, said we were in the “eye of the hurricane” and predicted a tsunami of future cases worse than anything the U.S. had yet seen within the next 6-14 weeks. Now at +12 weeks into that window, he was wrong.

At the end of March, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said she felt a sense of “impending doom” looking at a future catastrophe of escalating cases. She was wrong.
