Weekend – US setting the pace for a million new cases per week. Shocking, sad, not unexpected. Washington State – big spike in numbers. The White House continues to spread coronavirus. Melbourne relaxes the lockdown (which seems to have worked).
From The Seattle Times – the regular weekly status. That spike is going to be brutal. Hospital capacity is still good – but the spike in testing is the early indicator.
Friday – while most of the news continues to focus on election counts, the infections keep coming. US setting records for daily new cases. I would not be surprised to see some huge spikes in 5-14 days from long lines waiting to vote.
Thursday – the steadily increasing number of global cases, followed by the lagging hospitalisation, followed by the deaths. Europe, USA, Brazil.
Wednesday – post election. Record breaking local Washington State coronavirus cases. England lockdown starts tomorrow, panic buying and last minute socialising.
Tuesday – election day in the US. COVID related news intertwined with election news. Mask wearing while voting is now a partisan issue :\
Monday – Argentina importing 10M Russian vaccines.
