1. They’ve Been Following the Science’: How the Covid-19 Pandemic Has Been Curtailed in Cherokee Nation (STAT) With a mask mandate in place since spring, free drive-through testing, hospitals well-stocked with PPE, and a small army of public health officers fully supported by their chief, the Cherokee Nation has been able to curtail its Covid-19 case and death rates even as those numbers surge in surrounding Oklahoma, where the White House coronavirus task force says spread is unyielding.
2. Canada celebrates Thanksgiving the second Monday in October. A surge in COVID-19 incidence following Canadian Thanksgiving is a cautionary reminder for the coming US Thanksgiving and other winter holidays. Canadians were advised to limit celebrations to household contacts only or host remote/virtual events, but the extent to which Canadians adhered to that guidance is not fully known. A month after the holiday, COVID-19 incidence continues to rise in Canada, but the largest increase was observed 2 weeks following the holiday, which is consistent with the epidemiology.
3. HOW GOOD INDICANS STAY ALIVE: How a distinct ethnic groups who are organized, structured, and well led are beating Covid. This is long but readable and illustrates that there are many things we could do (in addition to the Vaccines) to inhibit Covid spread and death.
