Signs have emerged that the COVID-19 pandemic is receding. Even if new cases in the US amounts to 172,000 a day, it is still below the 200,000 peak the authorities recorded before. To add to that, the situation has also stabilized in Europe, thanks to the quarantine restrictions re-introduced in many countries. All in all, global COVID-19 incidence is at 503,000 a day, which is 20% below the peak (660,000).
Another COVID-19 vaccine also came out, but this time from AstraZeneca and Oxford. Their drug has shown an efficiency of at least 90%, which means that the vaccine will also soon go into production, after the approval of authorities.
