With over 900,000 deaths due at least partially to covid, we can’t help but compare covid to the Spanish flu’s 675,000. Since then, the United States population has tripled and going by percentage, you can assume we either have a lot more deaths coming, or the vaccines and masking make a difference. The news has already suggested the pandemic may be fading into an endemic, where breakouts will be localized and affect fewer than before. Jack Russo asks Dr Leonard Hayflick if this is the beginning of the end of this covid nightmare and why referring to the pandemic as an endemic too early could be more dangerous than you would have thought.
