I wonder if the significant second wave in Germany is due to the relatively low infection rate during the first wave ?

Yes, we passed the first wave with very good results compared to other countries. But I prediced already, before the summer holidays, that the numbers will increase after the holidays and this exactly happened. Too many morons who had vacation trips even to hot spot countries, too many stupid party people, too much religious blinded people who participated to church events and too much idiots who thought C19 to be over now because the (first) lockdown was finished. Its a mess, really. But as I have said various times already, the virus is a very smart one because it use the stupidity of its potential hosts.

Very possibly.  I'm set to get my flu shot as soon as this LATEST storm passes us.  Having flu and Covid hospitalizations at the same time could push the health system to overload.

Anthropomorphizing a virus is a little odd, don't you think?  Does it hide in dark places and wear a mask before it attacks, as well?

Germany

Like any population, 30% will either ignore the lockdown, and or violently oppose it. See U.S for example. Germany has it's share of right wing nut jobs, but they're a little firmer with controlling theirs.

Does ‘any population’ include Melbourne, Australia? 

Pretty sure most people just saw common sense and did the right thing... 

Maybe 1% ignoring or ‘violently opposing’.

@Hankenhunter I don’t like calling people out like this; but do you concede? Or have you taken a different position? Or still arguing your prior position?

Today was the 12th day of zero new cases here in Victoria, Australia. To be honest, I assumed and still expect that there would and will be flare-ups in areas until there’s a vaccine. 
But people are doing the right thing, still nothing like 30% ignoring or opposing. 

Honestly interested in you current opinion.
