A failure of govt leaders // Dr Anderson in N Dakota: "...people are less willing to wear masks and follow social distancing recommendations than earlier in the year. We have gone 180 degrees away from that. It's like every man for themself"

A new deadly virus is sequenced in January. Multiple vaccines are designed. Trials of > 30,000 participants complete enrollment by October. This represents an extraordinary biomedical research triumph. And that's an understatement.

New study: “His calculations show that the coronavirus has claimed more than 2.5 million years of potential life in the United States since the start of 2020. Nearly half of those years were taken from people under the age of 65.”
