COVID-19 Cases Are Rising in Europe, and the Vaccine Rollout Is Lagging. How Did It All Go So Badly Wrong?
Europe was one of the first regions to be hit hard by COVID-19 last spring. In mid-May 2020, the World Health Organization declared it the “epicenter” of the pandemic, with more reported cases and deaths than the rest of the world combined. From there, in many ways, the European experience of COVID-19 mirrored the U.S. and its neighbor the U.K., two of the other worst-hit parts of the globe: In the summer, many bars, restaurants and clubs reopened their doors, and international visitors were welcomed back. Then cases began to surge again in the autumn and winter, in large part thanks to the holidays, and lockdo...

Celtics Mock Draft Roundup With One Week To Go

Ainge will be furiously working the phones over the next seven days in hopes of consolidating his three selections (Nos. 14, 26 and 30). Maybe he’ll get lucky and be able to move up into the Top 10. Perhaps he’ll snag a player he wants at No. 14 and then cash in Boston’s later two picks for future ...
