    No. The WHO have just issued a warning that if Europe is any indication, things are about to go from bad to worse.

    UK is heading towards another possible full lockdown. Already large areas of the North of England having stricter measures imposed.

    Another lockdown, prior to the next lockdown. I feel like China must be super happy.

    The element of fear in some locations has been attenuating, due to common sense, so now it is time to give the fear virus another boost.

    The state of calamity extension only means that the national government is authorized to continue supporting COVID19 costs with extra federal money, including checkpoints, additional money for police and military and even help with the costs of distributing and administrating vaccines if they ever have one. It has no relation to continuing lockdowns, only to help support them if they are called. They are just extending this for 1 year in case the money is needed.

    If a locale locks down and the virus still spreads, what indication exists that a subsequent lock down will do any good?

    What are you going to do? Let it run free with no restrictions? Enforce restrictions to control the spread?, Or do something in between which will be 50% effective? They all come with a terrible cost.

    well, for my part the first thing you always have to do is be able to state a problem so that we can all agree on it (as i believe you have just done for seven and a half billion people)

    now we have to decide which one or several of the available options makes the most sense in light of the costs associated with each. and we have to remember, its not just covid we are talking about. it is every threat to human life and liberty.
