CNN's map is tracking US cases:

Passenger arrivals at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) in July plummeted by 98. 6% year-on-year, the city's airport authority has said.

Whether it's voting access, attendance limits on churches or prison crowding, the court -- steered by Chief Justice John Roberts -- is not yet stepping in to second-guess state or local officials.

Then Covid-19 was declared a pandemic, and their year started to look very different.

Faust said by comparing the first two months of the pandemic in New York to the worst two months of the pandemic in New York 100 years ago, the Covid-19 period had over 70% as many deaths per capita.

Airlines UK, the trade body representing carriers including British Airways, easyJet and Ryanair, has said Britain's decision to add France, Malta and the Netherlands to its quarantine list is yet “another devastating blow" for the industry.

The UK announced on Thursday evening that people arriving from France, Malta and the Netherlands, as well as Aruba and the Turks and Caicos Islands were required to quarantine for 14 days from arrival from 4 a. m. local time Saturday (11 p. m. ET Friday).

Since easing lockdown restrictions, the UK has maintained a travel corridor with listed countries from which people can travel without having to quarantine, but the list has changed repeatedly as cases spike and fade globally.

Airlines UK urged the British government to consider a regional approach to quarantines as opposed to a national one, which affects people travelling from any part of an affected country, regardless of regional case rates.

The trade body said the UK's “broad-brush, weekly ‘stop and go’ changes to travel corridors at a national level” were disruptive to airlines and passengers alike.
