“As coronavirus cases creep up again across the country, federal officials and epidemiologists say they’re worried Americans could hit another tipping point, leading to a forth significant surge of infections, hospitalizations and deaths.”

The “psychological grip” of the coronavirus “on the United States has weakened. Pandemic fatigue, warmer weather and a surge in vaccinations have led to a spring fever palpable across much of the country.” The number of Americans flying surged last weekend and cellphone data shows “movement steadily increasing everywhere except in large cities, where office buildings remain empty.” The pandemic “won’t last forever. But even as people are on the move, so is the virus.” There may yet be “a spring bump, if not yet anything as significant as a surge.”

“The world economy is facing a tougher start to 2021 than expected as coronavirus infections surge and it takes time to roll out vaccinations…. Double-dip recessions are now expected in Japan, the euro area and U.K. as restrictions to curb the virus’s spread are enforced.” Advanced economies are “beginning on a weak note and emerging economies diverging.”

“France has emerged as the epicenter of the second wave of coronavirus infections now sweeping much of Europe, causing hospitals to brace for a surge of new patients.” Governments have been left “are struggling to respond to the second wave, loath to impose new lockdowns that would compound the economic pain the coronavirus pandemic has already inflicted on their countries, but concerned about the steady rise in hospitalizations and deaths.”

“As public health officials look to fall and winter, the specter of a new surge of Covid-19 gives them chills.
