And now Peru and Chile


A couple of our South American neighbors shared some bad COVID news over the weekend.

In Peru, the COVID death figures were recalculated up, according to news reports:    

Peru on Monday more than doubled its official coronavirus death toll, becoming the country with the highest Covid-19 mortality per capita anywhere in the world.

The government said it had raised the count from 69,342 to 180,764 on the advice of a panel of health experts, which found there had been an undercount.

With the adjustment, Peru now has the highest coronavirus mortality per capita of any country, with 5,484 deaths per million inhabitants, according to an AFP count.

The country of about 33 million people previously ranked 13th in the world with 2,103 deaths per million, according to AFP's data.

For some perspective, Peru and the state of Texas have roughly the same population.  Texas has 51,000 deaths and Peru 180,000!

My Peruvian friends believe that the problem is an overwhelmed hospital system in Lima, the capital, and rural areas where the virus spread out of control.

Over in Chile, the news is more depressing.   It appears that the Chinese vaccine did not work:      

Across Chile—which has mounted one of the world’s most rapid vaccination campaigns using the vaccine made by Chinese drugmaker Sinovac Biotech Ltd.—health authorities are scrambling to deal with a surge in new infections and deaths.

More than 7.6 million people, half of Chile’s adult population, have already received at least one vaccine dose, most made by the Chinese drugmaker, making the country a real-world testing ground for a vaccine that Beijing is supplying to countries across the developing world.

The problem, public-health officials say, was that people in general overestimated the effectiveness of the vaccine after only one of the two recommended doses and moved to ease up on pandemic-control restrictions too soon.

What other country got the Chinese vaccine?   I hear that Brazil did but has now switched to other versions.

All over the world, we see challenges with COVID, from India to now Peru and Chile.  At the same time, we see the US doing better and moving back to normal as much as possible.  It confirms how effective President Trump was in getting the vaccines out and how great our health care system is.

A word about June 2






We remember June 2:

"The Great Bambino":   Babe Ruth retired from baseball in 1935.   

June 2, 1941: Joe DiMaggio extended his streak to # 19 on the way to 56.

"Leave it to Beaver":    We remember Jerry Mathers who was born in Iowa on this day in 1948.   Mathers will always be "The Beaver" in "Leave it to Beaver", one of the most popular TV shows ever.  

"The streak":    Lou Gehrig took himself out of the Yankees' lineup in 1939.    It ended the consecutive game streak at 2,130 games, from 1925 to 1939!   Lou died two years later in 1941.  

"White House wedding":    President Cleveland married Frances Folsom on this day in 1886.    

Rock and roll:    We say happy # 80 to Charlie Watts, the wonderful drummer of The Rolling Stones.

Happy # 81 Jim Maloney






We remember Jim Maloney who was born in Fresno, CA on this day in 1940.
Maloney broke with Cincinnati in 1960 and become one of the best right handers in the National League:  134 games with a 3.19 ERA.   Maloney won 89 games over a five year span, 1963-67.   
Maloney pitched a no-hitter later against the Cubs and won 20 games in 1965.  Injuries kept Maloney from pitching in the Reds’ championship teams of the 1970s.    
Maloney was elected to the Reds’ Hall of Fame.

Happy # 73 Jerry Mathers

Back in 1964, our family arrived in Wisconsin.  We learned a lot of English back then watching TV, such as "Leave it to the Beaver".

We remember Jerry Mathers who was born in Iowa on this day in 1948.

Mathers will always be "The Beaver" in "Leave it to Beaver", one of the most popular TV shows ever.   

The show had four characters that everyone could love:  Dad Ward Cleaver, Mom June Cleaver, Wally and Beaver.    

And let's not forget Eddie Haskell, who probably drove every mother crazy.

Learning English with "The Beaver"!  I can identify with that!
