TWL: caught 2020 in under a month

Almost 5 million new cases of COVID-19 in the US during this 106th week of this pandemic brought our 2022 total in less than one month to our first-year total cases from 2020. No other country can come close to our world records, so Americans just keep breaking through with new PRs (personal records, a runner’s term).

We are still on track to break the 2021 case total in a few weeks, but the glimmer-of-hope good news is that case numbers came down about 11% this week. Maybe we’re on the downslope of this hellish surge and we can delay beating 2021 by a week or so.

What do you think of that?
