The Early Waves Of Vaccination May Not Be Enough To Halt COVID’s Spread

The coming first wave of vaccinations will offer protection to limited groups of people. But, importantly, that doesn’t mean the virus itself will stop spreading anytime soon. Outside of a few small, isolated communities that have been vaccinated or received immunity from the virus itself, the first waves of vaccine will not reduce the burden of massive community spread in the United States, epidemiologists told TPM. Rather, they’ll do what they’re designed to do: drastically reduce the numbe...

Are California’s pandemic job losses overstated?

Let me offer a sliver of good economic news deep inside a very dark trend: California job losses early in the pandemic may have been smaller than what was initially reported. One of my favorite employment measurements — the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ “quarterly survey of employment and wages” — shows California losing an almost unthinkable 10.2% of its jobs in the year ended in 2020’s second quarter. While it’s hard to say anything other than “ugh,” the monthly state data for the same peri...

  While responding to accusations that she’s a tyrant lying about the dangers of COVID, Renae Moch, public health director in North Dakota, asked a pertinent question: “Why would I want to do that?” This, to me, is the strangest thing about the resistance to common sense that is now making a bad situation much worse. It’s stranger than the argument about freedom, which lacks the self-awareness to notice its own compliance, evident in the belief that a retweeted meme counts as independent t...

Is it likely the Supreme Court will decide the 2020 election? Ask the lawyer

Q: Is the outcome of the 2020 election going to be decided by the Supreme Court? -B.G., Torrance Ron Sokol A: The United States Supreme Court has limited jurisdiction, and only takes a very modest number of the cases submitted to it. If there is an authentic federal question pertaining to the 2020 election (such that the Constitution is implicated), the high court could take up an actual controversy. To date, however, the legal challenges on behalf of the president have largely been unsucces...
