J. Harris: All the hospital census counts are up. The hospitals in the Valley are said to be full up. Likely, counts will continue to go up; we’ll get a good count on Tuesday when the counters are back at work — then in two weeks, we’ll have another larger increase due to July 4 holiday carelessness. Maybe then the counts will go down until Labor Day. And then there’s winter. Wear your mask when out and about.

Elegant but unproven, RNA experiments leap to the front in coronavirus vaccine Will RNA VACCINES work?
Elegant in theory, efficacious in the laboratory but untested in the real world, the possible RNA vaccines are especially attractive because they might be cheaper, easier and faster to manufacture on a massive scale — at least one team boasts it could partner with producers in developing countries to provide millions of vials for as little as $5 a pop
The leading American effort, an RNA vaccine being developed by the Massachusetts biotechnology company Moderna, went from a genetic sequence on a computer screen to a shot in the arm of a person in an unprecedented 66 days.
