COVID Odyssey: Get your jabs

Get your jabs

There are those that would extinguish
The light that God has made
And interrupt our journey
And all the plans we laid

There are those that would take our spirit
And make us feel such pain
To wash away the progress
And years of hopes and gain

We must all stand united
Against these common foes
Together we stay standing
Amidst the threats and blows

Is thinking new jabs are the answer
To stopping COVID in truth absurd
We owe it to the fallen
That their voices still be heard

We are getting our second jab next week. Have you got yours yet?

COVID Odyssey: Worldwide Winter Windup ~ COVID-19 in 2020 ~ How many people may one person infect in your country?

We first look at case numbers for 185 countries to estimate Ro.
A year on from the cut-off date in our original dataset, we combine our results with the latest cases (6 August 2021) for all 31 countries with over 1,000,000 cases.

Below is the original version of the poem:

Spread the Word

SPREAD THE WORD

There are those that would extinguish
The light that God has made
And interrupt our journey
And all the plans we laid

There are those that would take our spirit
And make us feel such pain
To wash away the progress
And years of hopes and gain

We must all stand united
Against these common foes
Together we stay standing
Amidst the threats and blows

We owe it to the fallen
That their voices still be heard
That love is still the answer
We just have to spread the word

    I had my second jab this morning.
    Long queue but quicker than the first jab.
