We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

...the number of new COVID-19 cases reported on a Sunday or Monday—data that are actually collected on Saturday and Sunday—is typically several percentage points below the weekly average. Holidays tend to bring the same delays as weekends, and Thanksgiving combines a long weekend with a holiday ... Any immediate post-holiday spike, driven by data delays, should not be conflated with the rise in cases that could follow still later, driven by new infections incubated by holiday travel and gatherings. The bulk of Thanksgiving-related COVID-19 deaths will likely come around Christmas... “That could potentially delay the reporting even more,” she says. “We may not really have a full picture of what happened post-Thanksgiving until sometime in January.” [emphasis mine]

Pandemic Data Are About to Go Sideways

Trumps apostle Boris Johnson has told the British People that because of the second lockdown he will be able to relax the rules over Christmas so that we can all celebrate the holidays normally, this is a totally political move to appease the British peoples desire to quite naturally celebrate Xmas with their friends and family. At the same time, he admits the scientists have warned him that by doing this there will be a large spike in cases and deaths as a direct result of his actions.
