I think happily is too high a benchmark for us. Grumpily works for me 😅

Yes, if you look at Germany/Korea where they tested a lot, the rate is around 1.5% or so.

My daughter just commented (with an element of irony), “This is so not lit.”

 

And I am old and odd enough to be immediately reminded of the very relevant Blitz song by Hubert Gregg: “I’m Going to Get Lit Up When the Lights Come on in London.”

Don't think that I'm not a little terrified of having ordered schmura matzoh from Borough Park.
