Do you feel you lost a year from 2020? The average US life expectancy will likely drop 1.1 year due to covid-19, and more for Black and Latino populations @PNASNews
A new, very large #SARSCoV2 household transmission study (27K households, 30K cases, 58K contacts) —age ≥ 60 and infants most likely to get infected —<age 20 most likely to infect others (1.6X) @TheLancetInfDis
The antidote for "psychic numbing" Read the stories of loss of lives and grieving families of covid victims, as young as 23, from just one day in the US by @amy_harmon @abscribe @thomasfullerNYT @mannyNYT
