Weekend – a handful of confirmed “re-infections” is a worrying sign. Will a vaccine even be effective?
Weekly reminder of the state of the State from The Seattle Times. Plateau – but not safe.
Friday – across Europe travel restrictions are returning – similar to earlier in the year.
Thursday – “undeniable surge” in France, South Korea struggling to contain outbreaks. Second wave? Maybe. How these cases are suppressed is going to be vital learning.
Wednesday – the never ending flood of news is numbing. Trying to sustain empathy with 24M global cases, 5.8M US cases, 820K global deaths and 180k US deaths is hard. US politics are working to suppress the numbers and the news. Meanwhile Italy has surge of cases. Russia approves second vaccine.
Tuesday – Today India, Turkey, Spain again. US back to school is starting to prove a disaster.
Monday – it’s nearly September. Birmingham, UK continues towards lockdown. Boris says “go back to school”. We know how this ends. HK confirms re-infection.
