As more and more Americans get vaccinated, I grow more and more optimistic that we are gradually stepping into post-pandemic life. As noted yesterday, the seven-day moving average of new deaths is down to 525, the lowest it has been since October. (Correction: The three-day average on Monday is 549, the seven-day average was 818.) The latest measurement of average ICU capacity at 4,816 hospitals across the country is 70 percent. As of March 29, 42 percent of American public schools are back full-time, and another 51 percent are back in hybrid form. Even California governor Gavin Newsom – Newsom!
