The US recorded more than 42,000 new cases nationwide on Saturday and 500 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University.

FT

That is half the number of cases recorded in China in total.
And as for covering it up, China has conducted 90m tests, so they would have to cover it up as they would know.

24 cases in the 26 counties today. It is clear that numbers are no longer going down here, like other places in Europe, although deaths will go down. We have decided not to drive it down to zero but prefer to go to Primark instead.


The more you test the more cases you find. 3,200 tests done in the last 24 hours - this figure was 1,500 last week.

But these tests are mostly on contacts, so there are more seed cases leading to the increased number of tests. Travel is going to lead to loads of seed cases.
If at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

The positivity rate is still low and It's about managing any spikes in cases. Right now it seems international travel is the biggest concern health experts have about the months ahead.

It's alright telling people not to go on a holiday to Spain, Amsterdam etc but I know people over in London that haven't seen their parents since January or February. They have flights booked home in the next few weeks and that will surely result in more clusters around the country.

Depending on the age of their parents they might be better not to.

I believe the WHO might be engaging in some propaganda against their former friends who pulled payment quite publicly recently.

Or they might just be telling the truth based on what they know at this stage about the virus.

Possible also, either way. The misinformatiion and agenda surrounding Covid 19 continues.

I wouldn't say they're wrong in some cases. How does America get it out of their country or calm it down? 40k+ cases in one day in one state in one day. If even a small fraction of those pass it on then it's still a lot and then they pass it on again. At current rate if they don't calm it down they will go towards herd immunity. This then becomes a big problem for anyone wanting to travel  there as you need to make sure it doesn't come back with you.

The world is full of misinformation these days. if you even look at this thread and social media surrounding that wee boy in north belfast. (Now that was sinister misinformation but misinformation none the less)

I don't think the Americans care about it to be totally honest. I know a few fellas over there from my time and locking it down European style is laughed at.

Economy first, can't let the Chinese gobble up our ports on the cheap.

Leicester has become the first city in Britain to be plunged back into lockdown after public health officials expressed alarm at a significant rise in Covid-19 cases.
Shops that only reopened on June 15 have been ordered to close from today, schools will be shut from Thursday to all but vulnerable pupils and the children of key workers, pubs and restaurants will remain shut on July 4 and a proposed relaxation of shielding on July 6 has been cancelled

Paywall. Have they any idea where it's spreading from? Have any events / locations been identified?

The Mayor of Leicester was on RTÉ radio this morning, the government haven't given them the detailed data so they don't know quite know what is happening.

Locals being interviewed on BBC this morning almost in tears at the thought of it.
