Multnomah County is experiencing the lowest COVID rates this year, with 12 cases per 100K of population, reported the NYT.
I understand this may be because of the seasonality of the virus and not because people are taking precautions or that a significant percent of the population has been immunized. We are a ways out from the holidays which were spreader events.
For daily map-watchers, Multnomah county is almost in the lightest map shade, indicating few COVID cases. This is superficial but energizing just the same.
I write this in a rare snowfall in Portland. For the record, I am ready for something else other than cold, dark pandemic. Airy, light, warm Spring pandemic is more like it!
I will hold the fort as long as it takes. Can't fault a guy for hoping for better days.
