  • The US is nearing the stark milestone of 200,000 deaths, nine months after the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic. The number of deaths in the US, the highest globally, stood at 199,509 on the Johns Hopkins University tracker on Monday morning, roughly a fifth of the global total. The virus has killed people of color and immigrants (regardless of race) in the US at higher rates than their white and US-born counterparts. Among the dead are more than 1,000 healthcare workers.
  • Australia’s coronavirus hotspot of Victoria reported its lowest daily rise in infections in three months on Monday. However, state premier Daniel Andrews said there were no plans yet to ease restrictions sooner than expected. Victoria, Australia’s second-most populous state and home to a quarter of the country’s 25 million people, reported 11 new coronavirus cases in the past 24 hours, the smallest one-day jump since 16 June. It also reported two deaths due to the virus. The premier said his government would not accelerate a timetable for easing restrictions imposed after daily case numbers topped 700 in early August.
  • Jacinda Ardern, New Zealand’s prime minister, further eased restrictions on the country’s largest city, Auckland, and completely removed domestic restrictions on the rest of the nation, after zero new cases were reported. The government has recorded 1,464 coronavirus cases since the start of the pandemic, with 25 deaths.
  • The UK’s most senior government scientists will make a direct appeal to the public on Monday, warning that the coronavirus trend is “heading in the wrong direction” and “a critical point has been reached.” The warning comes after the UK reported 3,899 new cases on Sunday after a four-month high of 4,422 on Saturday.
  • The French health ministry has reported 10,569 new cases in 24 hours, down from the previous day’s record increase of 13,498. 12 more deaths were registered in the past 24 hours, with the death toll rising to 31 585. According to Reuters, the latest increase in deaths from yesterday’s toll may reflect late-arriving data for earlier fatalities.
  • In Spain, Madrid’s transmission rate is more than double the national average, leading to European contagion charts.
  • In Israel, which on Friday became the first country globally to return to a strict nationwide lockdown, thousands of protesters gathered on Sunday Jerusalem to demand the resignation of the prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, the first such demonstrations since the start of a new nationwide lockdown.
