Corona Calls in 05.20.2024: a new wave building

Discussed in this episode:

  • Singapore is warning its estimated COVID case count doubled in a week, with 2/3 of cases involving newer subvariants in the FLiRT lineage (KP.1 and KP.2)
  • CDC modeling suggests the COVID is “likely growing” in all states on the West Coast.
