an interesting real world experiment
the results of which will be not so cleverly misinterpreted, or ignored should they be too compelling.
Delta will present a challenge to the better vaccinated NE states as schools reopen and the weather cools.
In the Fun With Math way of doing things, the difference between 40 and 80% vaccinated should prove considerably greater than a mere halving.
Also complicating any analysis is that other mitigation efforts are more likely to be deployed in those places and those should also show a compounding effect.
Re: an interesting real world experiment
There should be a very substantial difference in outcomes between 70% vaccinated NE states and 50% vaccinated MW ones.
I'll just throw that out there so Sam can come back later with some Fun With Math and troll me.
