Do free-falling COVID cases after a truly horrible winter surge mean we have endured the last wave and are nearing the end of the pandemic?

Data and Metrics

We hope so, but not necessarily…. the recent dramatic fall in cases looks A LOT like what we saw last year at this time.

Even though falling cases and herd immunity talk make it *feel* like the pandemic is ending, we should remain humble and remember that these predictions have been wrong before.

The Nerdy Girls remain ever hopeful, but it’s very likely that we have not seen our last wave.

So how do we best minimize the impact of COVID-19 and get to the “next” normal?

One team of scientists has put together a roadmap covering topics including testing, therapeutics, and indoor air quality.
