According to Johns Hopkins, There are over 31 million cases of the virus worldwide, with over 961,000 deaths.
The U.S. has surpassed 6.8 million cases with nearly 200,000 deaths.
Per the COVID-19 Tracking Project, there were 37,291 new cases reported Sunday, which is lower than the 44,283 cases reported the day earlier. Over 897,000 new tests were reported. And 324 deaths were reported yesterday, which is lower than the 901 deaths reported the day prior.
The United Kingdom raised its alert level to level four, which means that the virus is “high or rising exponentially.” And this move will allow Prime Minister Boris Johnson to impose new restrictions in order to get the U.K.’s rising coronavirus case count down.
This move comes as Europe struggles with rising case counts. France and Spain are both facing new waves of the virus, with Madrid imposing new restrictions that will prevent around 860,000 people to stay in their neighborhoods with some exceptions for work, study or medical reasons.
And the German Health Minister, Jens Spahn, in an interview with a German newspaper, said that Germany will be introducing additional measures to fight COVID in the fall, with “temperature ambulances” which will allow those with COVID symptoms to get an on-the-spot test.
Jim Cramer said no matter the precautions taken by bars and restaurants, the future relies on a vaccine.
