The numbers of infections in the US are going up rapidly but deaths haven't (yet?) followed. Just a matter of time or is somtheing else going on? By that I'm thinking a lot more testing is happening, the disease is getting weaker, we're getting better at treating it, new cases are young people rather than people in nursing homes, something else?

I understand the average age of an infected person is now below 40.

That might explain the lack of deaths.

So it`s now not just racist it`s ageist as well 

The UK just removed 30k case from there testing results /infected cases 

Then you have this from the WHO

Most people know about this pandemic by now (where have you been?), and older people are generally taking precautions, so deaths should fall.

Oh, and we're washing our hands more, and cleaning down surfaces.

It's whether this change in behaviour holds SarsCov2 at bay this winter - I suspect it won't be succifient to overcome the increase in transmission.

Lots of denial about this virus, but there has been a huge change in human behaviour and the onset of summer.

I work in medical supplies, and more people know about Vitamin D, and have been buying and enquiring about it. This must also be a factor. Let's hope when winter comes, people remember to continue taking supplements.

Well we are now at mid winter in the southern hemisphere that should give us a some indication of what winter will hold for us

With so many old folk dying the average age of anything must be dropping. Don't know about the USA but the last stats I saw had the UK losing 10,470 aged 90+ to covid.

Instead of putting them in lockdown in a tower block, they should be moving them out. The aerolisation etc. from flushing their toilets is probably the largest part of the problem.

Yep, there was something I saw about sars1 and it mentioned a spread in an apartment complex due to the common soil pipe connecting the flats.

It was mentioned a while back about testing at sewage works to spot local outbreaks. Does anyone know if this is being done?

US is a much younger country than Europe.

And the old n poor tend to die off quicker.

And their migrants dont dont to be TB riddled dossers.

Of course, looking at the figures I think youll agree its all Trump n Cummings fault.
