First Vaccines (in the UK)

   Today the first vaccines were administered, in the UK. (and the second person to receive it was named William Shakespeare!)
   This is the 40th consequtive day with no cases here in Victoria, Australia.
   209,756 new cases today in the United States, 2,960 deaths. The hospitals in my home county (Orange, California) are all at ICU capacity now.


   One thing that's kind of funny over here is that we no longer need to wear masks outside, and we can go eat in the restaurants and pubs and don't have to wear a mask while sitting at the table, so in effect we put on a mask for the thirty seconds between the door and sitting down. Normally I don't poke fun at any mask wearing activities and I understand and agree with the mix of rules that cause this circumstance ... but still its a kind of funny sign-of-the-times sort of ritual I wanted to jot down for posterity.
