Next few weeks are worrying

In BC, COVID-19 case numbers have been steadily rising.

Severe cases are increasing as measured by hospitalizations.

And variant cases have risen.

All in all, not looking too good for the near future, although as ever, it’s difficult to predict what will happen.

If I were betting on this, though, I think that despite the very welcome (but I think it coulda been even faster) rise in immunizations, we will soon see a steep rise in both cases and hospitalizations, followed, unfortunately but inevitably, by a rise in deaths.

As always when it comes to unwelcome thoughts, I sincerely hope I’m wrong.
