Comeback story

I promise, this will be my last Covid post for a while.

Today's Oregon pandemic numbers include 89 confirmed and suspected Covid patients in intensive care units in hospitals around the state.

A week ago, there were 40.

The worst it got during the spring surge was 93, on May 6.

The all-time worst was 143, on December 13. At the rate we're going, we'll be there, or worse, by the end of next week.

What we gained with the vaccines, we lost with reopening everything. The virus loves politics.
