These are hard comparisons to do, when it comes to cases because of the vast difference in testing, when it comes to hospitalizations and deaths, because of vaccinations. The level of spread was probably just not as extensive last spring either, as the vaccine was new. But DD did his usual sterling work to show us some comparison, by day. When you look at the case chart, remember that we are testing now at probably ten times the level last year. Interesting to note the divergence between ICU and non-ICU hospitalization ratios in the two years. This probably reflects vaccination among the elderly shifting hospitalizations to younger groups who are healthier and wind up in the ICU less. It also reflects the uncertainty of treatment last spring, when everyone just got sent to the ICU. But note that there are more hospitalizations, suggesting we would have had a more serious wave this spring. The relative decline in deaths this spring is quite noticeable, but remember this is date of report info.
