      • Gloom settles over Europe as days darken and coronavirus surges

        “We had predicted there would be this second wave, but we ourselves are surprised by the brutality of what’s been happening over the past ten days,” Jean-François Delfraissy, an immunologist and the chair of the French government’s scientific advisory covid-19 response board, told France’s RTL radio.

            Study links 15% of COVID-19 deaths to air pollution

            A new scientific study has linked 15% of worldwide COVID-19 deaths with long-term exposure to air pollution, with the figure rising to as high as 27% in East Asia.

            • In the FT now...

              France and Germany impose new curbs as Covid surge hits markets

              • Merkel fears ‘health emergency’ • Macron announces lockdown • UK picture darkens

              On Tuesday, France reported 523 Covid-19 deaths in the previous 24 hours, the highest total since April 22, while cases in Germany rose by 11,409.

              In the UK meanwhile, more English regions were braced for restrictions as the government announced 310 deaths from Covid-19 the previous day. With Downing Street advisers arguing for the country to enter tougher restrictions by December, an aide said: “We are seeing the data every day and the last couple of days [are] increasingly concerning.”

              The trends reflect a wider continental tilt as countries scramble to deal with large rises in case numbers.

              Peter Piot, director of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and a special adviser to Ursula von der Leyen, the European Commission president, warned that the numbers of infections in the EU were “really staggering”.

              • Fauci on CNBC: "This is going to get worse. Bc we're going more into a colder season ...We've got to do something different. We cant just let this happen. We're going to have many more hospitalizations & that will inevitably lead to more deaths. So this is an untenable situation"

                        • It may be time to reset expectations on when we’ll get a Covid-19 vaccine

                          It is important to note that, to date, none of the vaccines being developed for the U.S. market has been proven to be effective in preventing Covid-19 disease. Early stage clinical trials have shown what appear to be promising signals; multiple vaccines have triggered production of important antibodies in people who have been immunized.

                          • An update on Australia's situation.

                            After a surge in case numbers in Melbourne four months ago, arising from infections escaping from hotel quarantine, the process of lockdown and track and trace has brought locally acquired cases from runaway expansion down to a trickle. Most daily cases are again due to returned travellers in (hopefully much better) hotel quarantine rather than locally acquired cases.

                            Hopefully, the move into summer will help keep the virus suppressed, hopefully effectively suppressed. We've even had dozens of Tauriki's cousins flying into Australia from NZ for the first time since February. They still have to face quarantine if they back, so the proposed travel buble between the two countries is still some way off.

                            The New York Times has an article on Melbourne's reopening: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/10/28/w...imes&smtyp=cur

                            • More than 2,000 new coronavirus cases in Colorado. More than 6,400 new cases in Illinois. And more than 1,000 new cases in New Mexico.

                              All record-breaking numbers for those states — and all on a day when the United States as a nation reached two grim new highs. On Thursday, the country recorded at least 90,000 new cases (that’s the equivalent of more than one per second) and crossed the threshold of nine million cases since the start of the pandemic.

                              And the records keep coming: Maine, West Virginia and South Dakota all reported on Friday records for new daily cases. And officials in Minnesota reported 3,155 new cases, the second single-day record in a row and the first time the state has seen more than 3,000 cases in a single day.
