The second wave of COVID may - may - finally be weakening. Just in time for a post-holiday spike and schools to go back in session.
New cases, new hospitalizations, and new deaths are all growing exponentially and out of control. The only thing that will save lives now is another lockdown.
Same pandemic, different week - cases are setting records, positivity is worse than it's been since early May, hospitalizations are about to exceed their peak from April, and deaths are rising too.
