It is helpful to see where we are at.
We have gone from 1 out of 11 people being infected to roughly 1 out of 15. Still, that seems high to me. The number of new cases is surprisingly low. The number of deaths is approaching a million, but the daily deaths have dropped quite a bit.

Reportedly it is ten times more infectious but ten times less deadly. It is like comparing cowpox to smallpox, where cowpox acts as a natural vaccine to smallpox.
