Tuesday/ the Omicron wave’s spike

It looks like the Omicron wave of the Covid-19 pandemic has crested in the Northeast of the United States. Recent numbers for the other regions show it is (at least right now) no longer increasing there.

A look at the recent numbers of cases for regions in the US. That number for Rhode Island is SIXTY times what we had at one time long ago, here in Seattle’s King County (7 per 100,000).

Here’s Washington State: not looking good, but hopefully near the peak of the Omicron wave. King County is at 220 cases per 100,000, a number I never thought we would reach.
