How does this year’s epidemic compare to last year’s? Dave Dixon has the answer with the latest update. You can see testing is up, so cases and active cases are up. Those 3000 non-cases in children 12 and under I mentioned are a big contributor. But hospitalizations are higher than last year as well. Deaths, however, are only modestly up. Based on cases and hospitalizations I would say we are in for a blunted, rounded wave, driven by events among the vaxed.
