Portugal went from 34% vaccinated to 84% vaccinated in three months. In that same timeframe the US went from 46% to 54%.
Remember when it was like ‘yea our response hasn’t been great but at least it’s not Europe haha’
Yes: to be clear, more waves will come. Europe has not attained COVID-zero. But if Portugal, at 85% vaccinated, experiences a per-capita death toll anywhere close to what our summer wave has been, then something has gone horribly wrong.
I agree it's a bit of a disaster, but remember *last* summer when the South was blowing up and the North and Europe were not. Now remember last winter?
