Germany is preparing for a whole new lockdown, as many cities breaks the limit of positive cases. Same as few other european countries like italy, france, UK,czech, netherlands, ireland, etc
This is the start of the predicted second wave, and Europe is not faring well. Historically through this pandemic, Europe has preceded the US by two to four weeks. So if the same holds true for this second wave, the US should start seeing similar numbers and another round of lockdowns by the end of this month or so.

We're already starting to see rates of infection beginning to increase exponentially across most of the Mississippi Valley, Great Plains, and Northern Rockies, as well as Alaska. Positivity rates in Wisconsin and North Dakota, in particular, are extremely concerning. The remainder of the country is seeing a more moderate increase in infections, with the exception of Hawaii, California, Oregon, Upstate New York, and New England. In the territories, infection rates remain moderate in Puerto Rico; low in Guam, the Northern Marianas Islands, and the U.S. Virgin Islands; and no cases reported in American Samoa.

I've been tracking it. Unfortunately, nothing is being done to mitigate it here in the US. This is going to be a very unhappy holiday season for everyone.
