Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden slammed President Trump's Covid-19 response, calling it "botched" and criticizing the President for not acting sooner.

The former vice president called on Trump to set an example for the American people by following Covid-19 guidelines as right now, he said, it seems like the President "doesn't care. "

Biden said he released his economic plan in July and that in the next three weeks, he'd be laying out the "sharp contrast" of his plan compared "President's non plans. " He noted that he would be asking Americans three questions: Who can handle the pandemic?

France reported 8,975 new Covid-19 infections in the past 24 hours, the largest daily increase since the outbreak began in France.

The new infections reported by France’s National Health Agency on Friday bring the total number of confirmed cases to at least 309,156.

Former Baltimore City Health Commissioner Dr. Leana Wen, a CNN medical analyst, underscored the importance of wearing masks during the coronavirus pandemic, as President Trump mocked Joe Biden for wearing one.

CNN reported on Thursday that Trump has cranked up pressure on administration health officials to expedite work both on a coronavirus vaccine and on treatments that might signal to voters there is an end in sight to the life-altering pandemic that has imperiled his reelection prospects.

With regards to the jobs report released this morning that showed employers added 1. 4 million jobs in August, the President said he believes the country will see "tremendous growth in the very near future. "

Authorities in Spain have reported 10,476 new Covid-19 cases on Friday as the novel coronavirus outbreak continues to grow in the country.

Spanish authorities also reported 186 new deaths from Covid-19 — the highest daily increase since May 26.

Maria Van Kerkhove, a WHO infectious disease epidemiologist, said it’s still too early to make absolute conclusions, “but I think it is important to recognize that deaths from Covid are likely to be undercounted at the present time. ”

Van Kerkhove said there are deaths “that we know are associated with Covid-19 from infection and are tracked in real time, as they occur. ” And then then are deaths that will be “identified as we retrospectively look [back],” she said.

Note: These numbers were released by the state’s public health agency, and may not line up exactly in real time with CNN’s database drawn from Johns Hopkins University and the Covid Tracking Project.
