"It is both perplexing and not a little devastating that this mysterious, lingering disease finds a way to continue wreaking havoc in the face of a largely vaccinated population and a supposedly milder variant."— @Daltmann10 @guardian via @JeremyFarrar

NYC: Here’s what you need to know right now about #COVID19 🧵 ⬇ After a brief plateau, cases are now going up. If you’ve stopped wearing your mask recently, it’s time to put it back on when you visit indoor public spaces. We recommend everyone should continue to mask up.

Most NYers never got around to getting their booster. Then covid fell out of the news. Now a new, more transmissible variant (BA.5) is gaining steam here. And positivity and other #’s are on the rise again. If you’ve been waiting, get boosted now:

As of today, 55 people have tested positive for orthopoxvirus in NYC, which is presumed to be monkeypox. While anyone can get monkeypox, current cases are primarily spreading among social networks of gay, bisexual & other men who have sex with men. Info:

BA.5 was ~17% of cases 2 weeks ago so likely much higher now. Experience from other countries means there will be another big increase in NYC #COVID19 infections, including among those who have had #Omicron in past few months. /2
