UK government accused of ignoring scientists' advice to lock down 3 weeks ago

The UK government is accused of ignoring its own scientists, who three weeks ago suggested considering a so-called “circuit-breaker,” a short lockdown to bring coronavirus incidence levels down.

At a large rally held by President Donald Trump in Florida Monday, few could be seen wearing masks, as is the norm at most of his events.

Germany has reported 24,584 new coronavirus cases in the past seven days -- the highest weekly count since April, according to the country's center for disease control, the Robert Koch Institute (RKI).

To put it into perspective, Germany reported 16,283 new cases the previous week.

This past week, the country's infection rate reached 29. 5 cases per 100,000 residents.

The United States reported 41,653 new Covid-19 infections and 317 virus-related fatalities on Monday, according to Johns Hopkins University.

See, either Eric Trump let the biggest cat out of the bag ever -- that the President was given a "vaccine" for Covid-19 -- or he is simply confused about the difference between medicines designed to help mitigate the course of the virus and an actual vaccine.

Donald Trump on Monday launched a three-week quest to save his presidency, behaving as though the pandemic that has killed 215,000 Americans was already a memory in front of a packed-in crowd -- even amid chilling new warnings about the resurgent virus.

In his first rally since his own bout with Covid-19, Trump painted a deeply dishonest picture of the nation's battle with the disease, mocked Joe Biden over social distancing and vowed victory on November 3 as he began a frantic push to Election Day, marked by multiple rallies a day that could act as superspreader events.

Medical experts expressed despair at Trump's decision to gather huge crowds during a worsening pandemic, ahead of a swing that Trump aides said Monday would involve multiple rallies each day in the coming weeks.

Denver is reporting an “alarming” increase in coronavirus cases; Montana has counted as many cases in 11 days as it reported in the first five months of the pandemic; North Dakota has broken hospitalization records for three days in a row and Arkansas has broken them for five days straight; Wisconsin consistently reports one of the country’s highest weekly average positivity rates; and Georgia has averaged more than 1,000 new cases per day -- every single day -- for 114 days.

South Korea reported 102 new Covid-19 cases and one new death in the past 24 hours, authorities said on Tuesday, after the country announced the easing of social distancing measures.

The new figures raise the country's total to 24,805 confirmed cases and 434 virus-related deaths.

This is the first time South Korea reported more than 100 new cases in six days and since easing its social distancing measures on Monday.
