200k next week for the US? Seems possible. Also, have there been any new measures (in the US)? I haven't heard anything in a while.
We (Germany) will probably peak very soon (or we might have already).
Austria will probably go into full lockdown soon. (poor Rol)
Austria messed this up spectacularly. And true to form, Austrians will use this last weekend before the harsher lockdown to party hard one last time.
My personal biggest problem with all of it is the rampant stupidity that is going around. And unlike corona, nobody will be finding a cure for that.
I currently feel germany is the country of ignorant snobs and dumbasses. We could've learned from other countries and we somehow managed to get through first wave OKish. But now we mess up. Numbers are high but germany can't decide on decisive measures.
Best of all: our minister of health Jens Spahn is infected. He sent a list of possible contacts to the local health authority, but didn't phone them themself, including a restaurant he visited. Some other visitor of the restaurant on the table besides them learned of the infection of the minister from media - and tested positive. They never got a call to test themself from anyone. Minister and local health authority both claim they did what they were legally bound to do - which is true. But only shows, that contact tracing in germany isn't working.
We had months to prepare for the second wave. But as we germans are arrogant buffoons, we did nothign as we believed we would be better than anyone else. I am currently so pissed about my nationality. We don't need Trump to fuck up.
