USA over 1000
The daily Covid death rate had fallen to 250 per day, but the deadly combination of the delta variant, and the way that the governors of Texas and some other states have allied themselves with the virus by banning mask mandates, has led to a resurgence of the disease.
The latest daily death number is 1015, and the new cases number is 150,958 (up from a low of 13000 in June).
This is, of course, driven by the two accellerants of low vaccination numbers, and zero state government action (apart from actions that help the virus).
Fortunately, this is an epidemic that's only hitting those who have chosen to be vulnerable. Anyone over 16 in the USA can get vaccinated, and 90% of the people entering hospital, are the unvaccinated - those who have chosen to play Covid roulette.
Why? I don't know. It's like choosing to cross a busy road with a blindfold. Sure, you're free to do it, but who in their right mind would take such a stupid chance?
