For a while now, it has felt like I’ve been chronicling the apocalypse on a daily basis, as I look at the D.C. COVID-19 data every day. Admittedly, this isn’t exactly a new experience for me, since I’ve worked on the problem of antibiotic resistance for much of my career, and that can feel downright sisyphean.
Still, it would be nice to see some data that convinces me things are getting better, no matter how marginally, especially when December through early February is likely to be brutal in D.C.
So, what D.C. should do is publish a vaccination dashboard. How many people have been vaccinated, which vaccines, how many doses they’ve received, how many D.C. residents, and so on.
We need some good news. That’s an important public health measure too.
