Big news is that, as stated in prior updates, the EU is now officially in a second wave of pandemic:

Although deaths in the EU remain below prior wave peak, these are rising and, accounting for lags in new cases, are likely to continue to climb:

Meanwhile, the U.S. numbers are starting to show some indicative signs of re-acceleration. If confirmed, the U.S. will also join the EU27 in entering a second wave of the pandemic.

For now, the EU27 continues to exhibit better cumulative case counts and deaths counts than the U.S., in absolute terms and adjusted for population differences and vintage of the pandemic onset.

On a cumulated basis to-date, the U.S. public health system is now responsible for ca 92-99,000 excess deaths compared to the EU27 - deaths that would have been preventable were the U.S. policymakers to give a damn about public health system in America. This should be criminal, but sadly, it appears to be normal.
