Thanks once again to DD for magnificent work. As I mentioned I am trying to figure out a way to track and show the potential effect of vaccinations. Since we are basically vaccinating going from oldest people to younger, it should show up in the proportion of cases, hospitalizations and deaths in those older groups, with falling percent of each. Here is an animation of cases from August til now. You can watch the slightly changing proportion of cases. I will try to publish this at least once a week so we can see if there is a change. Unfortunately the lag on getting cases for a specific date they were detected on relatively complete is about 10 days in Minnesota, and the development of adaptive immunity takes a few weeks, but we really should see the effects, even with favorable conditions for transmission, pretty shortly. The heading at the top of chart changes with the week being shown. There also is some weirdness around the time that the DOH dumped the 138 deaths. Not clear what they actually did with the cases associated with those deaths.
