CDC Sewer Data Hints At Bump In U.S. COVID-19 Cases
New CDC sewer data is suggesting there will be a rise in COVID-19 cases in the U.S. A ten-percent increase or more in coronavirus wastewater levels was found in a 15-day period from February 24th to March 10th.
Of 401 wastewater sampling sites, a ten-percent spike was seen in 145 of them. And 62 of the sites tested showed an increase of one-thousand-percent or more.
What’s that mean in the “real world?” That the pandemic isn’t over – and we can blame the new BA.2 sub-variant of Omicron, also called “Stealth Omicron.” Still, while case numbers may be ticking up, there isn’t any indication of significant illness or deaths. However COVID-19 cases may rise a little.
That said, Dr. Anthony Fauci says people ought to be ready for the old familiar. “We have to be careful that if we do see a surge as a result of that,” he explains. “That we’re flexible enough to re-institute the kinds of interventions that could be necessary to stop an additional surge.”
The fact that “coronavirus wastewater” is a thing is shocking, and not!! Hahaha

A 32-year-old Wisconsin mom met her newborn for the first time last week, nearly three-months after giving birth to her while she was in a coma battling COVID. Kelsey Townsend finally left the hospital after being admitted back in October when she was nine-months pregnant. The mom of four is now back at home with her husband, Derek, and four kids, including baby Lucy.
After being diagnosed with the virus in late October, Kelsey started having shortness of breath, coughing and pneumonia. She was placed in a medically-induced coma and on November 4th, she delivered Lucy, who tested negative for COVID and later left the hospital to join her siblings and dad at home.
