I'll keep this short, don't need tears all over my keyboard - so on to: Next weekend: Since grown-up releases are still fighting an uphill battle, the biggest opener might be domestic kiddie book adaption Max und die Wilde 7.
  2. A new treatment for difficult cases: https://www.preprints.org/manuscript/202007.0178/v1 Sounds very hopeful; something that can get victims out of ICU much faster would be greatly appreciated!
  3. https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2020/08/03/coronavirus-covid-live-updates-us/#link-KD2YP6IO2RA67MJ5F5HCECOLCU obviously message control is more important than spread control ...
  4. By now, Sweden has probably more severe restrictions than most european countries ... plus, no one is traveling there, and visitors from Sweden are not exactly welcome elsewhere. Most of the recent clusters in Austria are related to travel, touristic and otherwise. (Family visits to eastern europe are playing a big part right now)
  5. wise words ... we should always keep in mind that this is a disaster, only in slow-motion - there's no "right" path through it, just better and worse ones.
  6. Back in March and April, there was a worldwide shortness of protective gear, thence the tendency of many governments to keep them for medical staff. But from then on, that's no excuse any longer; masks are the cheapest and most non-intrusive way to slow the spread.
  7. next week, my cinema will offer tickets for every show @ € 2,90 (that's US$ 3,40) in a desperate effort to get people back to the seats
  8. This will start phase3 tests in August. I think, the more vaccine candidates the better, but even if that thing does what it's supposed to do, Russia will have their hands plenty full with saving their own country; while science and research are not far from world-class, their industry and infrastructure are miles behind US or EU standards. It's one thing developing the vaccine, and a completely other thing producing and distributing and administering it in the needed quantities.

Next weekend: The King od Staten Island, Le Prince Oublié, Mestari Cheng (a film by the lesser known Kaurismaki brother) … nothing really noteworthy; with the family releases trending maybe animal movie Cody: The Dog Days Are Over can attract some new customers. Plus, with open air shows now in full swing, we might see some old releases back in the charts.
  10. I've got no idea if there is a public site; but since Euromomo is a project of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control I'd guess that every agency targeted along the same lines (say, the CDC in the US) would collect the same data. Maybe you'll find something in there: https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/deaths.htm
  11. Maybe you remember, some weeks ago I posted a link to a planned early-warning system by testing sewage water for Covid19. In Tyrol, this system should start sometime this fall: https://www.tt.com/artikel/17179806/coronaviren-im-abwasser-erkennen-fruehwarnsystem-in-tirol-ab-herbst-startklar They claim the sensitivity is so good that they can spot about one infected person among a population of 10k. For my hometown (pop. about 170k) there will be five stations - four stationary, covering each about 1/4 of the population, and one mobile lab for screening single buildings or streets (e.g. nursing homes, schools ...) The system will give very early indications if cases are on the rise somewhere. (Some virus particles will always be detected, atm we have 10 officially infected in town - so here, the sytem is more about development, not if there is any virus at all. I guess, in New Zealand, you might use it to detect every single case!)
  12. https://www.euromomo.eu/graphs-and-maps there's charts for the single countries in the bottom third of the page, with a slider on top that lets you change the timeframe. Englands overmortality until week 21 was so big that no kind of undermortality could make up for that. Sweden had no such peak but a very loooong "ridge" and is still way above average. Other countries show no overmortality at all.
  13. exactly. We have to keep in mind that there is no "perfect" solution to this crisis. It's like a natural catastrophe, only at least one magnitude bigger. There simply is NO WAY we can go through this unscathed. The challenge iss all about keeping the damage as low as possible. That being said, yep, the US seem to do pretty bad in this challenge ... really embarassing for the world's strongest economic force.
  14. yep, that's what I meant - we might have to apply more severe measures in some regions while others recover. But we can't close all gastronomy for a year, the damage to the economy would outweigh the saved lives by far. So it has to be a constant fine-tuning of measures vs. freedoms. Here in Austria, we had more than 40 cases this weekend in a small touristic village: https://www.nachrichten.at/oberoesterreich/29-faelle-in-st-wolfgang-neue-testergebnisse-am-abend;art4,3278066 The good thing is that by now, there is enough testing capacity, about half of the >600 PCR tests done in the village on Saturday were already finished the same evening. It doesn't replace tracing+isolation, though - just helps with those.
  15. Well, yes, but keep in mind that business means people, too. Here in Austria, tourism is a very important segment of the economy; in my Tyrol about 35% of GDP. Austria has done a remarkable job of bending thre curve and getting the virus under control, but by now, most restaurants, bars and so on are open, plus tourists everywhere (of course, a lot less then pre-Corona) and accordingly, cases are on the rise again. This is something we have to live with until a vaccine is available. We can't have 100% safety, the difficult thing is finding the balance between safe and out-of-control, and that's what we will be doing for the rest of the year.
