France is being hammered right now.

Their 7 day average is 41,559 cases per. Their population is 1/5th that of the US. Effectively this means they're being infected at a 2.5x higher rate than the US. Haven't looked into other countries just yet, but it's looking bad in Europe generally speaking right now.

Would love to know the real numbers happening in China right now.
We'll never know the number back in Wuhan, but for the current time being, I really think it is super low / under control :

Because Creepy Joe didn't actually win. :D

Uwe: Jack's question and creepy Joe's status aside - isn't less-creepy Donald still POTUS until 20 Jan 2021 (regardless of the eventual election outcome)?

On a serious note -you are closer to the front-line than some of us that watch the infection numbers rise in your country; have you noticed a lessening in federal oversight regarding the COVID battle since polling day? Perhaps the Trump administration's emphasis has shifted towards consideration about legal election matters- maybe?

A good 30 minute summary of much of what has been and remains wrong about the Cornona Virus panic:

Interesting article about the history behind the development of mRNA vaccines:
Before messenger RNA was a multibillion-dollar idea, it was a scientific backwater. And for the Hungarian-born scientist behind a key mRNA discovery, it was a career dead-end.

Katalin Karikó spent the 1990s collecting rejections. Her work, attempting to harness the power of mRNA to fight disease, was too far-fetched for government grants, corporate funding, and even support from her own colleagues.
