Why are we not hearing about the coronavirus as much in the last week or two?

A month ago I was hearing that they were apocalyptic coronavirus numbers out of Arizona and Texas and Florida and now they’re talking about the election and coronavirus is kind of a secondary thing with only Mississippi in a state of emergency.  Are we still in a pandemic where we should not see anybody and should not assemble anywhere? Has the pandemic ended in the last two weeks and is the first wave over?

    No, numbers are still going up.  You need to be smart enough to figure that out for yourself.

    Well we've had big news unrelated to corona.  Joe Biden finally nominated his running mate and the DNC held their convention.  Then there's fires in California and postal slowdowns.  But infections have also slowed.  Compared to the rest of the world we're still seeing unchecked viral spread.  But compared to where it was a month ago we're doing a lot better.  According to google in mid July the US was notched about 50,000-75,000 new infections a day.  Now it's "only" in the 30,000-45,000 range.

    Yeah....funny how that pretty much stopped gradually after Trump changed reporting so it was going to his administration' HHS, instead of to the CDC.

    So if something isn’t immediately pushed in front of your face, then it must have ceased to exist? Infants have problems with object permanence, too, but most people grow out of it after their first year.
