At least 35.9 million infections have been officially confirmed worldwide, including more than 1 million deaths.

There are at least 7,714,932 cases of coronavirus in the US, and at least 215,670 people have died. Only 4 states are showing downward trends in new Covid-19 cases compared to the previous week. Meanwhile, at least 22 states are showing upward trends and 24 states are showing steady trends. Dr. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health, said he’s optimistic that the US will have a vaccine by the end of this year or the beginning of 2021.

India on Monday recorded 61,267 new cases of coronavirus — the lowest single-day increase since August 25, according to a CNN tally of Indian Health Ministry figures. As of Tuesday, India has reported more than 6.6 million cases of Covid-19 and more than 103,000 deaths. There has been a decline in daily reported cases in October, figures showed. For two consecutive weeks, the Indian Ministry of Health has reported fewer than 1 million active cases. The ministry attributes the decline in active cases to early detection thanks to widespread testing. The recovery rate is currently at 84.34%

As Europe contends with resurgent outbreaks, the World Health Organization has warned that coronavirus fatigue is setting in across the continent. “Although fatigue is measured in different ways, and levels vary per country, it is now estimated to have reached over 60% in some cases,” Kluge added.

Kluge said that “these levels of fatigue are to be expected” during such a protracted public health emergency, where citizens have made “huge sacrifices.” Kluge said European countries can reverse this trend and tackle the spread of Covid-19 by taking “the pulse of the community regularly” and “meeting the needs of citizens in new, innovative ways.”

“From understanding the behavioral needs of young people returning to university, to the emotional toll isolation has taken in elderly care homes, policy must be driven by the growing body of evidence we have on people’s behaviours and on fatigue.”

China has approached WHO for a “preliminary discussion” on having its locally produced vaccines included in the “emergency use listing,” a WHO official said Tuesday. According to WHO, the Emergency Use Listing is a “risk-based procedure for assessing and listing unlicensed vaccines, therapeutics and in vitro diagnostics with the ultimate aim of expediting the availability of these products to people affected by a public health emergency.”

In order for a vaccine to be submitted to the Emergency Use Listing, manufacturers must supply manufacturing quality data, non-clinical data, and clinical data to the WHO, as well as a plan to monitor quality, safety, and efficacy in the field and an undertaking to submit any new data to WHO as soon as the new data are available.
