Lots of media chatter happening today about the dramatic fall in COVID-19 infection and hospitalization rates since the first of the year. Here are some examples:

It seems the vaccines that were fast-tracked by the Trump Administration are proving even more effective than first thought, thanks to the rapid distribution and administering program implemented by the Trump team, which had more than 1 million doses being delivered every day by the time China Joe Biden was installed into the presidency. That reality, combined with the build-up of herd immunity in the country is now leading to a dramatic drop in the infection, hospitalization and death rates related to the viral gift from China.
From the New York Post story linked above:
A Johns Hopkins professor and surgeon says that the coronavirus could be “mostly gone” by April.
Marty Makary, who teaches at the university’s School of Medicine and Bloomberg School of Public Health, said in an opinion piece published in the Wall Street Journal on Friday that daily infections have declined by 77 percent since January.
“There is reason to think the country is racing toward an extremely low level of infection,” Makary wrote. “As more people have been infected, most of whom have mild or no symptoms, there are fewer Americans left to be infected. At the current trajectory, I expect COVID will be mostly gone by April, allowing Americans to resume normal life.”
Vaccinations and the high number of people who have already been infected in the US — more than 28 million — could contribute to herd immunity in the spring, Makary said. Herd immunity occurs when enough people become immune to a virus, ending its spread. Makary also said it would protect against new strains of the coronavirus from spreading.“When the chain of virus transmission has been broken in multiple places, it’s harder for it to spread — and that includes the new strains,” he said.
Of course, none of this is in any way in the Biden/Fauci plan to keep Americans holed up in their homes and wearing double-masks into perpetuity. Even worse, it is crystal clear that these suddenly much more positive outlooks are the result of actions taken by the Trump administration, and that neither Biden nor his evil handlers can take credit for any of it.
Thus, the only recourse available for the Biden people to take is of course to try to revise history, which is why we saw the DC Swamp Sock Puppet-in-Chief say this on Friday:
BIDEN: "Just over four weeks ago, America had no real plan to vaccinate most of the country. My predecessor, as my mother would say, 'failed to order enough vaccines,' failed to mobilize the effort to administer the shots… That changed the moment we took office." pic.twitter.com/TVo4tBEKyb

BIDEN: “Just over four weeks ago, America had no real plan to vaccinate most of the country. My predecessor, as my mother would say, ‘failed to order enough vaccines,’ failed to mobilize the effort to administer the shots… That changed the moment we took office.”
This is obviously an outright lie, but hey, he’s a Democrat, so what else would we expect?
To be clear: Nothing changed the moment Biden took office. In fact, it is painfully obvious from his and Fauci’s constantly-shifting narratives that they had no plan whatsoever related to COVID-19 on January 20, and still don’t have any real plan – other than to needlessly keep schools closed at the behest of teacher’s unions – today, one full month later.
And now, their plan to keep Americans frightened and masked for years to come is imperiled by the solutions made possible by the executive actions of Donald J. Trump.
For actual Americans, the potential for their lives to return to something resembling normalcy is cause for celebration. But for Biden and his fellow Democrats, it’s the worst possible scenario.
That’s the truth, and we shouldn’t be shy about saying it.
That is all.
