It’s the perfect occasion for the wonderful Randy Newman song “YOU CAN LEAVE YOUR HAT ON, to become the anthem of a COVID19 world titled, “YOU CAN LEAVE YOUR MASK ON.“

The UK could be facing 50,000 new Covid-19 cases a day by mid-October, if the current infection rate is not halted.

Prof Chris Whitty, England's chief medical officer, and Sir Patrick Vallance, the UK's chief scientific adviser issued the warning.

Numbers are increasing among all age groups with the epidemic doubling roughly every seven days, they said at a briefing.

Parts of the Spanish capital Madrid are going into a tough new lockdown - more than 800,000 residents have been asked to stay at home.

India's Taj Mahal reopens after six months, its longest ever shutdown.

New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern removes all coronavirus restrictions except in the largest city Auckland.

The Emmy awards have been held virtually, with most winners dialling in to make speeches from home.

There have been 31 million confirmed Covid-19 cases worldwide, with more than 960,000 deaths.

An off topic-but a Corona related comment.

I wished that I through a spell became a professor of psychology, with at least 50 years of experience. Thereby it might be that I understod my friends and friends 'friends' posts about this Corona and the incumbent socialist government in Denmark.

Like why is it that a huge majority of my Right wing friends who is critical to the socialist government and a huge majority of those of my friends who support Trump, are among those who share doubtful and/or fake news about this Corona virus.

Just curious.

End of an off topic

People subject to tighter coronavirus regulations will be allowed to look after children from other households.

The restrictions prohibit people in affected areas from meeting other households.

But after complaints from parents, Health Secretary Matt Hancock said people looking after children under 14 or vulnerable adults would be exempt.

The new exemption allows grandparents, for example, to look after their grandchildren.

One of Matt Hancocks finer moments imho. This means the wife can continue looking after our granddaughter three days a week.

People in England should work from home if they can, Cabinet Office minister Michael Gove says.

It comes a day after top scientist warned urgent action was needed to stem a spike in infections.

I'll say it again, I really dont think new infections are on the rise or doubling. I think it's the number of people tested that is doubling everyday and we are simply finding out just how widespread the virus has already traveled.
