The resurgence of the pandemic is going from bad to worse. Figures just announced show that the US has suffered more cases and deaths in any single day than anywhere else in the world. This is down to many factors not least the lack of a unified policy which we have reported on before. It has however become even more serious since then. Doctors and authorities are advising that no gatherings with people outside one’s household should take place. They are introducing new measures such as curfews and the closing of schools. Projected figures if we do not introduce these measures are off the charts. Hospitals and their personnel can not take any more in some states and the situation is truly dire.
There is no doubt that the population requires to act responsibly during the holiday season. Hopefully, this will keep the situation contained until we can supply vaccines to the most vulnerable.
