CNBC.com’s MacKenzie Sigalos brings you the day’s top business news headlines. A second wave of coronavirus infection overtakes Europe as the United States mourns 200,000 Covid-19 deaths — the most of any country in the world.

European nations are preparing for the shift with curfews on pubs and bars, and with tighter restrictions on residents.
