She stops by early in the morning, this time it was 6:30 am. She drove up to our home, parked, got out, and sneakily climbed through our regular bushes, with clippers in hand, and for about 5 minutes cuts herself some foot-long rose stems, about 10 in total maybe. She leaves with a very nice bouquet. What she doesn’t know is as she climbs through the regular bushes, there’s some poison ivy that grows there, that brushed up against her legs. We haven’t seen her since, and she hasn’t been back for a third time."

The rates of COVID-19 infections and deaths continue to plummet in U.S. And worldwide, cases are down 15%. But the virus is picking up again in some global regions, raising concerns that the pandemic isn't ending any time soon.While new infections in the U.K. remain far lower than the worst days of the pandemic, the numbers are spiking again. Health officials blame a fast-spreading virus variant first detected in India. Some 100,000 people tested positive in the U.K. in the last week of May. That was a two-thirds increase over the previous week.The variant discovered in India has now been reported in 62 countries. Another virus mutation, first detected in Japan, has spread to 64.
