How has Europe handled Covid?

With bad choices, the European union has had rough times dealing with covid cases. At one point they had more daily cases than the United States. As the cases continue to rise in both countries, both countries continue to compare each other on who is doing worse at handling this virus.

According to statisa.com,

“After successfully keeping new infections at a very low level over the summer, case numbers in Europe had started trending upwards again in mid-July, climbing to unprecedented highs by the end of September, which is also when the EU surpassed the United States in terms of daily new cases. The rate of new infections continued to accelerate through October, with the seven-day average of new cases increasing almost fivefold between October 1 and October 31.

Meanwhile, the situation in the U.S. is worsening again, with the number of daily new cases climbing towards 200,000 after surpassing 100,000 for the first time on November 3. As of November 23, the seven-day average of new cases had reached 172,000 in the United States, with total cases rising from 10 to 12.4 million since November 8.”

With worsening cases it is hard to determine when we will return back to how we were about a year ago. We hope that with new technological improvements and new vaccines can end the virus.
