A sure sign the pandemic is over

However, the possibility exists that the contents were made before the shutdown. 

Among the vaccinated, when anyone catches COVID now, it's like a mild version of the flu and rarely fatal unless there are other health complications.

But the USA still has a daily average of 437 deaths/day, which would be 159,500 deaths/year, with the unvaxxed supplying 120,000 deaths/day.

Still, that's only half of last Fall's daily rate.  It will be interesting to see what the peak death rate is in January or February.

There has been a tendency for killer virus strains to evolve to less-lethal strains and hopefully that will continue with Covid.  Omicron has infected so many people mildly and provided a lot of resistance to Delta and the Original strains so that Delta and Original have virtually disappeared.

I caught Omicron for 6 mild days in June, was boosted against the Original and Omicron in September when I also got my flu shot.  So I'm ready for this winter.
