>>8415>don't even manage to clear their backlog on Monday, spilling over to Tuesday
That was my first guess, giving it might take some time to decide a death should be attributed to COVID and counted. An article I found seemed to point more to some unknown difference in behavior on different days of the week, so I wasn't sure what was more likely.>percentage of local infectable people decreases, thereby >>8417
decreasing the spread
Right, herd immunity. In the early stages you might have considered the effect negligible, but now it is gaining ground, perhaps.>>8418>the seasonal flu is seasonal
I was under the impression it was the mutations of the flu that kept it from being extinguished through herd immunity, but also kept it mild, as most everyone is immune to something similar. I don't know if that's right, though, and it is not a theory with much precision, if that's what you mean.
It also opens the possibility with Coronavirus, that it will become endemic through mutation. If I understand, the high rate of spread means it is otherwise doomed to die out or retreat to a non-human resivore.
