Mexico’s cases have been level for some time, but due to low testing (confirmed by very high positivity rates), the general severity in confirmed cases didn't alleviate as many other countries, resulting in one of the highest case fatality rates worldwide. Image

Biden Covid advisor says U.S. lockdown of 4 to 6 weeks could control pandemic and revive economy

With green zone exit strategy we are there!
Osterholm said such a lockdown would help the country bring the virus under control, “like they did in New Zealand and Australia.”

"Epidemiologists have repeatedly pointed to New Zealand, Australia and other parts of Asia that have brought the number of daily new cases to under 10 as an example of how to contain the virus."

Why is Europe yet again at the centre of the coronavirus pandemic?

Guardian @lfspinney

Last week Europe had 1.5m new cases-a record..Europe’s strategy for exiting its spring lockdowns failed..economists’ assessments.say.regions or countries that came down hard and early on the virus not only lost the fewest lives, they were also the most resistant economically

..That’s why it’s so important that governments explain clearly why this exit strategy is the only feasible one – pointing to the countries large and small, rich and poor, island and not, that have pulled it off: Australia, Taiwan, Vietnam, New Zealand, South Korea, China.

The largest ratio was observed in Canada due to its recent wave starting late Aug. The rise in Canadian cases are primarily in Quebec and Ontario. Image
