Here is the data from the Europe Center for Disease Prevention and Control; the blue bars are the totals for Europe (note that the dates are in the European format, DD/MM/YYYY):
As you can see, the U.S. daily numbers (the grey bars) are comparable to the April peak, though the 7-day rolling average (the brown line) isn't yet up there. The per capita numbers in Europe (which has a population of about 2.25 times the U.S.'s) are a bit higher than in the U.S., though over the Summer they were much lower. Let's hope those vaccines we're hearing about are coming soon ….

I think it’s worth pointing out that the states that were hardest hit early on are NOT seeing any real second peak. The second peak is only showing up in states that did fairly well in early suppression efforts.
This suggests that Covid deaths in each state will probably all converge on roughly the same number eventually, barring an effective vaccine being distributed sometime soon.
If you don't see any comments yet, congrats! You get first comment. Be nice and have fun.
