As it became clear that #Europe was heading into another deadly wave of the #coronavirus, most of the continent returned to #lockdown. #European leaders pushed largely similar messages, asking citizens to take measures to protect one another again, and governments offered broad financial support.
Weeks later, the effort seems to be working and #infection rates are slowing.
In several parts of the #UnitedStates, it’s a different story. In the Midwest, which is experiencing an explosion of cases similar to that seen earlier in #Europe, leaders have not yet managed to come up with a coherent approach to loosen the #virus’s grip.
Is it too late for the New World to learn from the Old?
Guests: Matina Stevis-Gridneff, who covers the European Union for The New York Times, and Mitch Smith, a national correspondent for The Times based in the Midwest.
