US figure was 62k yesterday? That is a huge number for France.
Would be about like 200k cases here. Their deaths are also increasing and approaching our numbers, roughly equivalent to 750 deaths per day here (averaging over the last week). They will likely exceed us soon since their average deaths per day have almost doubled over the last week.

Fauci estimated that the US could hit 100K cases per day over this winter....and to think in terms of population France is already 2x that level of new cases per day this week.

Europe is in that 2nd wave and it is hitting like a damn steam hammer. 2nd wave for the US might be underestimated based on what we are seeing in Europe this week.

especially for a country with a population of only 67 Million. US has 330 Million

Belgium and Netherlands are massive as well, euivalent to 400k and 200k here

What's happening in Europe is deeply disturbing.. did they all just return to life pre-covid?
Not sure but the Older population are the ones getting it now which can quickly drive up the deaths

Since early Sept the number of cases in 60+ age group in the UK has quadrupled
Germany is reporting the proportion of cases in the older age groups has been increasing since Sept
In France the 65+ age group number of cases has tripled in the last 6 weeks

In Spain at the outset the median age of those testing positive was age 40....by July that had dropped to 37....by mid Sept the median age of positive cases was back up to 39

88% of the Deaths in Europe are people in the 60+ age group

The European CDC considers it a "high" amount of if more than 60 people per day per 100,000 population in the age 65 or older category test positive.

As of this week 13 countries in Europe are WELL above that range for the 65+ age group

I certainly understand pandemic fatigue (and election fatigue) but these numbers are staggering and hopefully not a glimpse of our future. It seems like everyone decide to visit grandma and grandpa all at once.

I just received a message from an ER Doc I know in North East Oklahoma. I will share that info as it was a public plea on their part. I texted and asked how bad it was and the response was "There isn't an ICU bed available today within 150 miles of Tulsa"

We can always hope, but you already see it. I took an 8 hour road trip recently and no exaggeration, every rural gas station where we stopped had employees not wearing masks or distancing and 80%+ customers doing the same. Somewhat better in the cities, but they all had restaurants and bars open where no one wore masks even while waiting on food. Those are just a few examples. I'm not optimistic that rising cases or deaths will change behavior much at this point, since that's what we're already seeing. I've just kind of resigned myself to doing my part and accepting that things are probably going to keep getting worse. I'm sure I'll get hated on for saying that.
