In just one month, the country’s seven-day average has grown by more than 97%. Last week, the United States reported the highest number of infections per day recorded in any country (with 99,321 new cases).
The pandemic is going from worse to worse in Arizona, one of the electoral battlefield states that has seen an increase in new cases and hospitalizations. CNN’s Dan Merica spoke to more than three dozen voters in Arizona’s Maricopa County, the largest rotating county in the country, about Trump and Democratic candidate Joe Biden.
Although Trump has routinely downplayed flare-ups, some are willing to give him the benefit of suspicion, arguing he has been unfairly maligned. Kyle Schmidt, a high school student who voted for Trump̵
7;s first vote, said critics of the President used unfair hindsight to harm him politically. His mother, Kristen Clark, agrees. “The president did the best with the information he had,” he said.
Biden’s supporters often say Trump’s response to the virus is a key issue, citing personal experience with the pandemic as a reason to reject the President. Jacob Martinez, 19, formerly the chairman of the Arizona Teen Republican Party, left the party because of Trump and is currently working as an organizer of the Democratic party for his sophomore year at Arizona State University. Martinez said: “At this point, everyone knows someone is dead (of Covid-19). That speaks of Trump’s inefficiency.”

WHAT IS IMPORTANT TODAY
Research shows that women who are pregnant with Covid-19 face a higher risk of death
Pregnant women infected with coronavirus are more likely to become seriously ill and die from Covid-19, and they are more at risk of preterm birth, according to a pair of reports released by the CDC on Monday.
Although the risk of serious illness or death remains low, CDC researchers found that pregnant women infected with coronavirus are more likely to need special care, ventilation, and heart support, and lungs than non-pregnant women with the virus.
Hundreds of people were arrested in anti-lockout protests
Police in the Australian state of Victoria arrested 404 people during a protest against the lockdown in Melbourne on Tuesday – more than a week after the state began lifting stringent pandemic measures already in place. for months. Protesters have occupied the state capital’s central business district and called the virus that killed more than 900 Australians and at least 1.2 million people worldwide, a hoax.
Melbourne was the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic in Australia this summer, with Andrews declaring “catastrophic” at one stage to prevent an outbreak that left up to 725 people in Victoria testing positive for the withdraw in just one day. But from a public health standpoint, Andrews’s decision seems to have worked. While cases in Europe and the United States are on the rise, on Sunday, Australia did not record a new Covid-19 infection for the first time since June.
What Europe needs to achieve in the second key
Outages are multiplying across Europe as Covid-19 cases increase exponentially, threatening to push medical services across the continent to tipping point. Experts are urging European governments to reconsider their pandemic approach, fix its blind spots, and stop another cyclical rise in disease over the next year.
Mark Woolhouse, professor of infectious diseases at the University of Edinburgh, told CNN, it requires looking at the basics: finding all the cases and making sure people adhere to self-isolation and quarantine. Europe is witnessing some movement on the test front. From Friday, residents and workers in the UK city of Liverpool will be checked for Covid-19 regardless of whether they have symptoms. This follows Slovakia, which examined more than half of its population over the weekend, to help prevent a second shutoff.
The world can learn from the way Africa handled Covid
The epidemiologists had predicted that Africa’s weak health systems would collapse under the weight of Covid-19. However, eight months after the pandemic, a continent with a population of 1.3 billion people, reported nearly 1.8 million Covid infections, while the US reported more than 9.2 million infections.
Some of these low reports may be due to poor testing, but Africa as a continent seems to have handled the pandemic more effectively than the United States. While basic factors – such as a young population – may contribute, there are striking differences in leadership quality, disaster response, adherence to scientific advice, and Consistency in pandemic response strategies appears to have played a key role.
