Numbers improving in many hotspots
The UK reported 16,840 new cases today, which is a far cry from the +60K a few weeks ago.
Worldwide the numbers are also improving.
US daily cases are down to around 130K from upwards of 300K. Another one is South Africa, where the scariest variant first took hold.
It's tough to separate if this is a result of restrictions and caution or if it's because the variants aren't so bad after all but the bottom line is that it's good news.
