Moth balls are supposed to be good rodent deterrents
I know. Infection numbers are one thing. But hospitalization numbers are more objective, as is ICU bed occupation. We are admitting > 600 new patients per day. We've taken ever more strict measures over the past week, when the numbers didn't seem like slowing down. And yesterday we went into lockdown.The news today discusses this outbreak in Europe as an evolution of the SARS/Covid virus. While there are more cases, they can be genetically attributed to tourism in Spain, then homeward travel of the tourists.
What has not been discussed is whether this change in the virus is more symptomatic or more lethal. I suspect it has lessened on both counts somewhat. However, if you are only excited about the number of cases, it looks bad. But it might not be. Most positives have been asymptomatic and are showing up only because of aggressive screening.
Still, wear a mask, wash your hands, don't touch your face.
