And it’s working! Cases have fallen off a cliff, dropping by almost 90% in just two months:
The US is actually not far behind the UK in vaccinations per person anymore, although we were significantly behind until recently. And we are actually putting out more doses per capita than the UK at the moment. So, this gives us an idea of what we have to look forward to. If anything, our results should be even better because a more contagious variant is more widespread in the UK than here.
Indeed, we’ve seen cases fall by 2/3rds over the same period:
To me, this seems like an incredibly powerful endorsement of Brexit and the Johnson government, neither of which I ever thought I’d favor! But the rollout in the EU has been pathetic. Meanwhile, as an American, I’ve been looking upon the UK with envy.
Bottom line: the vaccines really are working, and we have an amazing summer to look forward to!
