COVID-19 Pandemic Isn’t Over (Claiming That It is Only Worsens Things)

JUST when they tell you autumn is here the numbers begin to soar.

The numbers were finally released, after 7 days of waiting (they really need to issue daily updates, as before), just a few minutes ago, revealing a 42% increase in COVID-19 cases in just one week. That’s despite testing levels going down, or maybe owing to them (making us blind to the spread).

I was expecting further growth after last week’s increase, but not that fast a growth. It’s only September. As it turns out [1], this is expected not only in the UK. The pandemic isn’t over, it’s just hibernating.

  1. Finland’s Covid cases to rise again, health authority predicts

    There will be an increase in new Covid cases across Finland as winter approaches, according to a forecast from the National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL).

    The health authority presented an assessment of the coronavirus situation at a joint press briefing with the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health, on Thursday morning.

    The experts said vaccinations are not effective in significantly reducing the spread of the virus at this point. The best protection from severe Covid symptoms comes from hybrid immunity, which people gain from a combination of vaccinations and a recent infection.

    Finland is monitoring two Omicron subvariants of the coronavirus that causes Covid-19 ? BA.2 and BA.4 ? particularly closely.
