“It’s not a word I’ve heard in a long, long time,” an elderly Paris resident said, leaving her apartment in mask and gloves for an early expedition to the shops. “A curfew. That’s for wartime, isn’t it? But in a way I suppose that’s what this is.”

Europe’s second coronavirus wave took a dramatic turn for the worse this week, forcing governments across the continent to make tough choices as more than a dozen countries reported their highest ever number of new infections.

In France, 18 million people in nine big cities risk a fine from Saturday if they are not at home by 9pm. In the Czech Republic, schools have closed and medical students are being enlisted to help doctors. All Dutch bars and restaurants are shut.

Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Poland are among countries to have broken daily case records, prompting the World Health Organization to call for an “uncompromising” effort to stem the spread.

Unfortunately, that requires making all but impossible compromises.

Most European governments relaxed strict lockdowns over the summer to revive economies shattered by the pandemic’s first wave. The return of normal activity, from packed bars to new academic terms, has fuelled an exponential increase in infections.

With infections across the continent breaking the barrier of 120,000 a day, authorities must now tighten restrictions once more to slow the spread of the disease – while doing all they can to avoid destroying already-jeopardized jobs and livelihoods.

Oh yeh, just a scam, not. Take all precautions you can.

Not as bad as the Great Plague, which killed 75–200 million. Keep smiling, and wear a mask.

I heard most of those heart attacks in American men are due to uncontrollable and frequent priapism.

The Great Plague killed an estimated 100,000 people—almost a quarter of London's population—in 18 months. The plague was caused by the Yersinia pestis bacterium, which is usually transmitted through the bite of an infected rat flea.

Your facts are way off. the population of the world was only about 490 mil. at that timeconfused

You can make all the comparisons you like Devo but to mock this virus as you frequently do is to mock the people who have and are dying from it.sigh

Really? How many articles have we read about celebrities being positive , having the virus and from what i saw ,the method on how people are tested is mocking human intelligence . How many autopsies have we seen?
No im not mocking people who have died , but i prefer to have prove of what they really died of,otherwise ,the way i see it, Humanity is been taken for a ride, big time

We were told there would be a second wave, and it's here. Astonishing that a hoax could cause so many deaths and alter so many lives worldwide and continue to do so. Imagine the destruction if it had been a real virus.
