The virus has killed at least 1,205,044 people worldwide since the outbreak emerged last December, infecting more than 46, 8 million people.

The USA is the worst-affected country with 236,471 deaths, it registered 399 new fatalities yesterday. at least 31 states across the US reported at least one record-high day of new coronavirus cases in the past month, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. Fifteen reported their highest one-day tallies of Covid-19 deaths. The country’s seven-day average of new daily cases was 78,380 Saturday — a number that has risen 128.2% since a post-summer-surge low on September 12. Of the country’s seven highest daily tallies of new cases, six were in October. The highest — 99,321 recorded on Friday — was the most recorded in one day for any one nation so far.

Brazil recorded 10,100 additional confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus in the past 24 hours, and 202 deaths from COVID-19, the Health Ministry said on Saturday. Brazil has registered more than 5.5 million cases of the virus since the pandemic began, the third-worst outbreak globally after the United States and India.

South America’s largest country has also reported 159,884 deaths, making it the second-deadliest outbreak after the United States.

European governments are desperate to stem the worrying spike in infections on the continent which has registered more than 279,000 deaths since the virus first emerged in China at the end of 2019. Europe, once again, is the centre of the global pandemic, accounting for almost half the world’s infections last week.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Saturday announced a new month-long lockdown for England after being warned that without tough action a resurgent coronavirus outbreak will overwhelm hospitals in weeks.  The U.K. passed 1 million confirmed COVID-19 cases, Johnson made a sudden about-face and confirmed that stringent restrictions on business and daily life would begin Thursday and last until Dec. 2.

Under the new restrictions, bars and restaurants can only offer take-out, non-essential shops must close and people will only be able to leave home for a shortlist of reasons including exercise. Activities ranging from haircuts to foreign holidays must once again be put on hold. Unlike during the U.K.’s first three-month lockdown earlier this year, schools, universities, construction sites and manufacturing businesses will stay open.
