This is a follow-up to my discussion of high Covid incidence (cases per population) in Europe. As of Nov. 23, France has turned things around. Other European countries are at least not getting worse. The US is still growing rapidly. But new cases are still high in all of these countries, and they have a long way to go to return to the low rates of the Summer. China, Korea, and Taiwan are still invisibly low by comparison.
Deaths increased in October/November less dramatically than cases, reflecting large improvements in treatment of serious Covid. Deaths lag cases by approximately 2 weeks, which may explain why France’s recent turnaround in infection rates does not show up yet.
The last figure is supposed to show today’s data from Our World In Data, but WordPress seems to have trouble rendering it.
