SEVERE CORONAVIRUS WARNING, FAIRFAX VA, December 2021

While I have been maintaining a running page on the Coronavirus pandemic since March of 2020, I am adding this post to highlight a page from December 2021 that shows the rapid exponential growth (with a 2.3 day doubling time) of the Omicron variant in Fairfax County, VA, which had became evident by mid-December, 2021 (but slowing post-Christmas). The page has an analysis of the data with daily updates, an explanation of my double exponential model of the combined effect of the Delta and Omicron variants, and a discussion of likely impact. The page can also be reached from my full Coronavirus post.
