Since I am not a fan of US-centrism (which is x1000 stronger during elections season), here’s a thread on Covid around the globe.

In Italian sorry. Basically the article is saying that there is a resurgence of the virus, and that 50% of the new cases have been tracked down from people coming back from their summer vacations, hence there’s an escalation in case number. Lombardy region Case number is now increasing at a worrying pace

Non si ferma l’escalation dei casi: 1.210 nelle ultime 24 ore. La Lombardia risupera il Lazio. Accordo vicino sui tamponi agli imbarchi dei traghetti da e per la Sardegna

And this answers the questions from other threads asking why places like NY are not returning to normal right away.

Well, I don't think we'll return (or we should) return to normal before the end of 2021, but we certainly mustn't over react on the other side. What a crazy year, next what, Cthulhu's awakening?

And the US is still struggling with the first wave.

Let’s hope Europe can handle it.

Excellent idea for a thread, and also an excellent rationale for this particular title and for the subject matter of the thread.

as for waves I think US should reason in terms of states (a-la Europe).

So much for the “united” part.

I’ve been watching friends in Australia as they go in and out of lockdown without a complaint. They seem to be doing things right.
