And just like that, the NYT declares Covid over. The narrative changes--slowly, clumsily, backfillingly. But change it does.
NORMALCY NEAR, <- Declaration of narrative change
RESEARCHERS SAY, <- Find researchers who will support the narrative change
IF U.S. IS CAREFUL. <- Backfilling
LOOKING TO THE SUMMER <- Another narrative change possible
Concerns Over Variants
and Social Behaviors <- We're not sure about these variants, so let's stay a bit hysterical and remind people they must continue to cower a while longer
Bottom Line: Act Five of Covid Theater starts now!
And then, and then.
Nursing Homes See 80% Drop in Virus Cases
Vaccines Transforming Former Hot Spots
Thus endeth the nursing home subplot
And, Al, stand by for your Haiku of the Week!
Normalcy is Near
Researches say still be careful
Eyes are on the Summer
