    MELBOURNE, Australia — Australia’s second-largest city, Melbourne, has moved close to easing severe lockdown restrictions after recording only 14 new COVID-19 cases on Sunday. It was the second day in a row new infections fell below 30. There were also five deaths recorded Sunday. Melbourne’s lockdown restrictions are due to be eased next weekend when child care centers will be allowed to reopen and gatherings of up to five people from two different households will be permitted. But that depends on the rolling 14-day average of new cases being below 50. It now stands at 36.2. Victoria state Health Minister Jenny Mikakos praised residents for adhering to lockdown rules, saying, “The huge sacrifices made by Victorians are saving many lives.”...

    By The Associated Press South Korea __ South Korea’s new coronavirus tally has fallen below 100 for the first time in more than a month, as the country’s recent viral resurgence is gradually easing. The Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency said Sunday that the newly counted 82 cases took the country’s total to 22,975 with 383 deaths. It’s the first time for South Korea’s daily jump to fall to double digits since Aug. 13. The drop is likely partly driven by the fact that authorities conduct fewer tests on weekends than weekdays. But even before Sunday, South Korea’s daily virus tally had been staying in the 100s for more than two weeks, after it once surpassed 400 in late...
    By The Associated Press TOKYO — Train stations and airports in Japan were filled with people over this “Silver Week” holiday weekend running through Tuesday, in a sign of recovering local travel amid the coronavirus pandemic. The surge of domestic travel is a contrast to previous holidays, such as the summer Obon. Pressures were high for people living in urban congested areas not to visit families or play tourist in areas, where cases have been far fewer, with some regions having zero or a handful. The daily new cases of coronavirus infections in Tokyo have recently fluctuated at around 200 people. Japan does not have widespread testing and so many cases are likely going undetected. Baseball games, stores and theaters...

Keir Starmer became leader in April and we are very much under new leadership Six months since the Chancellor announced that the Government would pay 80 per cent of wages for those employees not working — the “furlough” scheme.

    BORIS promised us a “world-beating” Covid-19 testing system, but what we have is a coronavirus cock-up of truly epic proportions.

    By The Associated Press PARIS — Coronavirus infections tipped the scales again in France on Saturday with nearly 13,500 new infections in 24 hours. Economy Minister Bruno Le Maire is among them. He announced Friday in a tweet that he had tested positive with no symptoms and was working during self-isolation. The high-profile Le Maire is the fourth French minister to test positive since March. It was the second day in a row that new COVID-19 cases in France were above 13,000. The French health agency said Friday’s big jump was the result of one hospital in the Essonne region south of Paris belatedly reporting numerous cases. It wasn’t clear whether that kind of add-on effect was at play on...
    By The Associated Press PHOENIX — Arizona health officials on Saturday reported 610 additional coronavirus cases and 16 deaths, increasing the statewide totals to 213,551 confirmed cases and 5,467 deaths. According to Johns Hopkins University data analyzed by The Associated Press, the seven-day rolling average of daily new cases in Arizona rose over the past two weeks, from 575 new cases on Sept. 4 to 774 on Friday. The increase followed the state Department of Health Service’s recent changing of its case-counting methodology to adopt an updated national standard that includes “probable” results from less-accurate antigen testing. The counting change resulted in big bulges of additional cases Thursday and Friday as the department updated its records to include more than...
    By The Associated Press ROME — The Italian health ministry reported another 1,638 new cases of coronavirus and 24 deaths. The deaths brought Italy’s official coronavirus toll to 35,692, second highest in Europe after Britain. The health ministry says the new cases were based on a record 103,223 tests. While countries such as Germany have been processing more than double that number in recent days, Italy has been limited at around 100,000 tests. Public health officials said in their weekly monitoring report that Italy’s seven-week uptick in cases represented a “slow and progressive worsening of the outbreak.” However, it’s not as bad as in other European countries where new daily cases have exceeded 10,000. ___ HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO...
    Education Secretary Betsy DeVos called for Congress to pass coronavirus relief legislation with funding for school choice, warning that more private schools are on the brink of closing without federal help. "We need to have immediate relief for those schools," DeVos told Fox News in an interview.

That's a crisis in the making right there." Her comments come as at least 160 private schools have permanently closed so far this year as a result of economic fallout of the coronavirus pandemic, and a recent court ruling against DeVos has limited relief fund...

    As much as half of the world's population may have some immunty to coronavirus, a small but growing body of research suggests.  Tests done on donated blood in the US found that about 50 percent of the samples had immune T cells that reacted to coronavirus, suggesting that the donors' bodies might have the natural ability to fight of the deadly virus.  Similar results have been found in the UK and Sweden.  COVID-19 is thought to be so deadly in part because it's an entirely new virus to  which humans have no natural immunity.  And while that is clearly the case for many people, British Medical Journal associate editor Dr Peter Dosh wrote on Thursday that the evidence is beginning...

    President Trump raised the stakes for the delivery of a coronavirus vaccine, promising a faster timeline than that promised by his advisers and accusing the Biden campaign of undermining the effort. Trump said Friday that his administration will have enough doses of a coronavirus vaccine for every person in the United States by April 2021, far sooner than what federal health officials have predicted. “Hundreds of millions of doses will be available every month, and we expect to have enough vaccines for every American by April,” Trump said. He added that the vaccine distribution process “will go quicker than most people think.” Health officials in the Trump administration have said that a vaccine could become available...
    One of Joe Biden's recent favorite campaign lines is to knock President Trump for not warning the public about the coronavirus pandemic earlier in his State of the Union speech this year. Trump, however, did address the coronavirus pandemic in his State of the Union speech in early January of this year. "Imagine if he had, just maybe, on the State of the Union that year, spoke up and said, 'We got a problem, we can handle it. Here’s what we got to do,'" the Democrat said Friday in a speech from Hermantown, Minnesota. On Thursday night, Biden made a similar claim in a CNN town hall. "Imagine if he at the State of the Union stood...

Customs and Border Protection [CBP] agents are also battling an uptick in human smuggling cases.

    (CNN)Despite what science or the failed coronavirus strategy in Sweden tell us, people continue to entertain herd immunity as a possible strategy for ending the Covid-19 pandemic. During ABC's town hall meeting with voters on Tuesday, President Donald Trump said the coronavirus would "go away," even without a vaccine. "You'll develop — you'll develop herd — like a herd mentality. It's going to be — it's going to be herd-developed, and that's going to happen. That will all happen," he said. It seems Trump meant herd immunity, rather than "herd mentality," but no matter — the line of thinking he was apparently trying to invoke goes like this: if Americans let SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19, run amok,...
    Israelis just want to fly away. The atmosphere was so grim as the nation entered a coronavirus lockdown on the eve of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, that there appeared to be no escape. One meme making the rounds showed desperate hands reaching out of the sea towards a far-off airplane flying high in a deep blue sky, accompanied only by the traditional greeting of “Shana Tova,” a good year. The greeting felt hollow as Israel entered into the year 5781 as the first country on earth to impose a second national lockdown. Alone in small home-bound pods, unable to gather or to pray in synagogues, and confused by the governments constantly evolving, often contradictory guidelines, Israelis feel alienated,...

    It’s hardly new or revelatory to say this, but it’s critical to remember the role that “The Apprentice” played in turning Donald Trump, a notoriously bad businessman with a string of bankruptcies, into an American icon of capitalist success. Everything from careful editing to set designers giving the dreary Trump Organization offices a glow-up came together to create the illusion of success where only failure and mediocrity had been before. It was an experience so profound for Trump that he did something highly unusual: He learned something. He absorbed the idea that a well-constructed illusion of competence gets you all the benefits of being accomplished, without having to do the hard work of actually achieving anything. Unfortunately, it was a lesson we are...
    Residents in nursing homes across the country will now be allowed to welcome visitors for the first time in six months.  The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services announced a ban on family members visiting nursing facilities back in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Exceptions were made only for critical care and end-of-life situations.  But on Friday, the organization lifted that ban, effective immediately,  following widespread complaints that nursing home patients were suffering from anxiety and depression without visits from loved ones.  All nursing homes across the United States must now allow outdoor visits or risk potential sanctions if they refuse to do so.  Residents in nursing homes across the country will now be allowed to welcome visitors for...

    Washington (CNN)As the US continues to combat the coronavirus, wearing a mask has become a politicized issue. A day after Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, suggested masks might be even more important than a vaccine in the fight against the virus, White House chief of staff Mark Meadows argued that masks don't actually make a difference in stopping the spread of the virus. "I will gladly wear my mask each and every day if that's what makes the difference -- and it doesn't --and I think that even a Dr. Redfield, Dr. Fauci or anybody else would suggest that it is a mitigating effort, but it is not something that is designed to, to...

    A watchdog group has accused Robert Charrow, the general counsel at the Department of Health and Human Services, of pushing to ease testing rules to help his former clients in the medical device and diagnostic industry. Charrow, who was appointed by President Trump in 2017, led the administration’s push to ease rules ensuring the safety of coronavirus diagnostic tests developed by individual labs before HHS Secretary Alex Azar “overruled” Food and Drug Administration (FDA) officials to revoke their ability to regulate the tests, according to Politico. “Top HHS officials led by General Counsel Bob Charrow argued for months that the FDA lacked the legal authority required to regulate this particular slice of the testing market, which includes labs located in larger academic medical...

On Wednesday, Trump publicly contradicted the director of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), who had ruled out that a coronavirus vaccine could be massively available before mid-2021 and said that use of masks can be more effective than the vaccine to prevent infections. “He made a mistake,” Trump said of each of those two Dr. Robert Redfield considerations. The president insisted...

    A new report contains 27 major recommendations on how to safeguard nursing homes from transmission of the coronavirus. The Trump administration is claiming "resounding vindication" from an independent commission's report on the coronavirus crisis in nursing homes, but some panel members say that's a misinterpretation of their conclusion that much remains to be done to safeguard vulnerable residents.
