The difference between The U.S. and the EU is pretty stark. The U.S. has obviously given up on getting the epidemic under control.
The population of the U.S. is 328 million. The population of the EU is one third bigger at 446 million.
In Europe there is a wide discussion of the measures that can be taken to avoid a second wave during the next winter season.
Some of the states in the U.S. are still in the uptick phase of their first wave. Some even have an increasing gradient.
The hospitals in some of these states will soon run into serious trouble. Their case fatality rates will then tick up.
The recent demonstrations and wide re-openings in most states make it likely that the number of daily new cases will rise further and will exceed the previous total of some 32,000 new cases per day.
What amazes me is the culture war about mask wearing.
