GlobalGoogle mobility data mixed in places, trend improving

The past week hasn’t really seen any substantial shifts in activity, even if it’s increasingly clear that we’re past the worst as Covid cases continue to decline globally and the first signs of the vaccine impact start to percolate into the data. In the overall rankings, it is the Europeans that remain the most depressed compared to pre-pandemic levels of activity, with the UK languishing at the bottom of that league.  Germany and France took a step back based on the data, while there was a further mild improvement in Spain and Italy.
