Yes it is gone for now.....of course. You take a virus with a typical R(t) of 1.1-1.3 this time of year, you then implement broad transmission inhibiting behaviors and the R(t)<1.0. It’s just math. It can’t take off.

what's my best argument when people point to this being a byproduct of masks 'working'? the fact that there isn't a similar 'reduction' in Covid + ?
