Europe’s Second Wave

New Cases in Europe are increasing rapidly with Spain and France being the worst affected and the UK also reporting high numbers. Many countries are introducing lockdown measures again. Despite the increasing cases the number of deaths remains low and there are a few reasons why this could be the case. Firstly, health experts now have a much better understanding of how to treat the virus. Secondly, many cases in Europe have been among young people who have only had mild symptoms which has prevented hospitals getting overwhelmed with COVID admissions.

Data sources

This is a list of some of the main data sources we use: https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ Probably the best source of the latest COVID-19 statistics https://medium.com/@tomaspueyo/coronavirus-the-hammer-and-the-dance-be9337092b56 Tomas Pueyo has written a number of very good summaries of the strategies to overcome coronavirus https://www.capitaleconomics.com/the-economic-effects-of-the-coronavirus/ Good source of fast-moving China economic stats. https://bnonews.com/index.php/2020/02/the-latest-coronavirus-cases/ If you want to be bombarded with every breaking news story, this is the place https://ncov.dxy.cn/ncovh5/view/pneumonia  Faster than worldometers for Chinese data, but slower on rest of the world data. I don’t think China cases matter anymore. https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/situation-reports I’m less enamoured of the WHO data now than I was at the start of the crisis. They are providing less information now than they were at the start of the crisis, and it sometimes contradicts country-level data. https://gisanddata.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6 The prettiest pictures, but one of the slower sites to update. I don’t find the charts that useful. https://www.youtube.com/user/MEDCRAMvideos has a daily youtube wrap-up https://www.youtube.com/user/ChrisMartensondotcom has a daily youtube wrap-up

  1. Levy on over 70's super to pay for COVID

    There’s going to be third, fourth, fifth waves, and people will die.

    But life will carry on for most of us.

    The PCR test comes back positive even if it detects only a tiny fragment of the virus genetic material and the person is not contagious, according to Dr. Beda M. Stadler (former director of the Institute of Immunology at the University of Bern).

  3. pro-scienceMEMBER

    Its obvious from looking at the above data that the death rate is much lower now than it was in the first wave. In fact it doesn’t look like an emergency.

    • Hey you know “Levy on over 70’s super to pay for COVID”??, he sitting somewhere close to you in 55 Savushkina Street, Primorskiy district, St. Peterburg, wanna let him know he is slacking off and have not replied to my message above.
      I think he hit the vodka bottle a bit too early today..

  4. The widening gap between cases and deaths has zero to do with new treatments and zero to do with a weakening virus, and everything to do with more liberal testing.

    If the police have a blitz and hand out 5,000 extra tickets one weekend, were people driving more dangerously that weekend, or did the Police have some better technology, or were the Police simply issuing tickets for offences that got a warning the previous weekend.

    Now what if fewer people died the weekend of the blitz and 5,000 extra tickets? Well it would be hard to argue they were driving more dangerously. Maybe people were being more careful because of the blitz – and got rewarded with a ticket.

    The number of tickets issued tells you nothing about whether driving is dangerous. It only tells you how many tickets were issued.
