Every day since late March of 2020, I have dutifully entered data into a huge spreadsheet used to generate several calculations and over 40 charts. By the end of 2020, as the published data was increasingly out of date and being backwards updated and corrected, it was no longer possible to make useful sense out of our state’s data and I discontinued tracking most items. But I have continued to update about half a dozen data series every days since then.
I have been giving though to discontinuing this soon – and with the above announcement, this might be where I considered this pandemic over and done with.
This announcement is a political decision to end the pandemic by the 4th of July.
The pandemic is over with apparently. Even with constant fear mongering about new scariants, the genie will not be put back in the bottle.
