Plague Tapes #122

Sunday monring, it’s the dawning of another day in the plauge.  We’re in it now and riding through the peak wave.  We just bring you some decent tunes, hunting the wren with the Bogus man and then  switching it up for a bit of a bop nearer the end.  

News: Andrew takes us through the 149,143 cases in the last 7 days, and 22, 181 is the 5 day case average.  The 150,000 is more than we have had in any of the previous waves.  There may be 450,000 cases, and we are running out of the people who can be infected.  We have gone through different phases in all of this pandemic, and each phase has looked different.  There is going to be spikes and waves into the future, but this looks like we are going through a concertinaed version at the end of this.  But we are seeing the magnitude of the impact is greatly reduced.  So the percentage of people going into ICU is now as low as 0.05% of call cases, which equates at 1 in 2000 and in the past it was as high as 1 in 700 going to ICU.  But we will continue to see waves, but each wave does less harm.  Positivity, up at 52%, and we can observe that this needs to come down – so that will indicate that we are going to be coming through the peak, when we see this come down.  Next week, will really tell us where we are in all this…

Love & Rage,

Dr. Groove
