    High school students in Michigan can return to in-person classes as soon as Monday following a loosening of statewide restrictions after health workers recorded manageable coronavirus case numbers in December. Students in the state were sent home on Nov. 15 following an executive order by Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer as health workers witnessed a spike in COVID-19 cases statewide. "Making this change now allows schools to consider locally if offering face-to-face learning for high school works for their community," Whitmer said during a Friday afternoon news conference. The decision not to extend the prohibition beyond its Sunday expiration date comes after Michigan officials recorded progress noting that the number of COVID-19 cases in the state continues to fall while remarking that the Thanksgiving holiday did not lead to a greater spread of the disease. According to the New York Times coronavirus tracker, cases of the highly contagious virus dropped...

The EU and the United Kingdom reported an average of 78,000 cases a day over the seven-day period ending Oct. 12. In the same time, the U.S. reported 49,000 on average.

Larger Western European states are seeing sharp increases as well — Spain and France are both around 300, as is the United Kingdom. As a whole, the bloc is reporting...

    By The Associated Press MIAMI — Florida officials have reported the state’s biggest one-day total of confirmed coronavirus cases since late August, a day after not releasing any pandemic data because of a problem with a private testing laboratory. The Florida Department of Health said Sunday there were 3,700 new cases in the previous 24 hours and 1,790 for the day before that. It said there were 180 COVID-19 over both days. Health officials say they received 400,000 previously reported test results late Friday from Helix Laboratory, which prevented them from processing and releasing the daily data report Saturday. Epidemiologists needed to verify results to make sure cases weren’t counted more than once.

Fines range from 500,000 rials ($1.60) for not wearing a mask to a...

    A group of Spanish scientists are speaking out against the country's political establishment for its response to the coronavirus pandemic. This week, more than 50 scientific societies in Spain penned a 10-point manifesto under the headline, "In health, you rule but you don’t know." “On behalf of more than 47 million Spaniards, including you and your families, we have to change so much political, professional and human inconsistency," part of the letter states. The scientific groups represent close to 200,000 health workers in the country who are disgruntled by what they characterize as a political standstill in the capital of Madrid. Health officials in the city are struggling to contain an outbreak of the virus. On Tuesday, Salvador Illa, the country's health minister, said that Madrid, specifically, was key to containing the spread of the virus. More than 500 new COVID-19 cases per 100,000 residents were reported in...

    NEW DELHI (AP) — India’s coronavirus caseload surpassed 4 million on Saturday, deepening misery in the country’s vast hinterlands, where surges have crippled the underfunded health care system. Initially, the virus ravaged India’s sprawling and densely populated cities. It has since stretched to almost every state, spreading through villages and small towns. With a population of nearly 1.4 billion, India’s massive caseload isn’t surprising experts. The country’s delayed response to the virus forced the government to implement a strict lockdown in late March. For more than two months, the economy remained shuttered, buying time for health workers to prepare for the worst. But with the cost of the restrictions also rising, authorities saw no choice but to reopen businesses and everyday activities. Most of India’s cases are in western Maharashtra state and the four southern states of Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Karnataka. But new surges are popping up...

    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Despite a slow but steady shrinkage in the number of confirmed coronavirus cases reported by Texas health officials, the virus is still spreading geographically. A Sterling County resident was reported Thursday as testing positive for the virus that causes COVID-19, making the sparsely populated West Texas county near San Angelo the 251st of the state’s 254 counties to have a confirmed coronavirus case, according to the Department of State Health Services. The DSHS reported 7,018 new confirmed cases Friday, bringing the total to at least 520,593 since the state began tracking cases in early March. Even so, the true number of Texas cases is likely higher because many people have not been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected and not feel sick. Meanwhile, COVID-19 deaths have been reported in 211 counties. With 313 fatalities reported Friday, a figure state health officials say is subject...

The health ministry on Friday reported 54,771 new cases, a record daily spike that brought the nationwide total to 1,032,913. The Covid-19 pandemic is quickly spreading with no sign of slowing down, as major cities lift social distancing measures and begin reopening restaurants, shops and other nonessential businesses.

    ST. LOUIS (AP) - The coronavirus is spreading beyond Missouri’s largest cities, fueled in part by outbreaks in meat packing plants and nursing homes. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the share of cases coming from rural areas now accounts for about 30% of the state’s new cases - a greater portion than ever before. The seven-day average of daily new cases in areas of the state beyond the St. Louis and Kansas City metro regions, has generally been under 50. But since the middle of May, a gradual climb has pushed the pace to about 65 new cases a day. “There’s been this long-running perception that coronavirus is an urban phenomenon,” said Chris Prener, a sociologist at St. Louis University who closely tracks Missouri coronavirus trends. “It’s definitely an ongoing issue for rural areas.” The per-capita rate of infections has leapt more than tenfold over the past month...
