With around 60,000 corona infections within 24 hours, the United States has reached a new high. This comes from figures published by Johns Hopkins University on Wednesday. Johns Hopkins’ highest level was recorded last Thursday with a good 54,000 cases. The country has a total of more than 2.996 million cases (as of July 8; 9:57 a.m.). More than 131,000 people died from or related to the virus.

A few hours earlier, the United States had officially announced it was leaving the World Health Organization (WHO). The announcement, which would take effect on July 6, 2021, had been submitted to UN Secretary-General António Guterres, a senior government official told the German press agency in Washington on Tuesday. The WHO in Geneva and the United Nations in New York confirmed receipt of a corresponding statement by the United States government to UN chief Guterres. The UN Secretary-General was informed on Monday, his spokesman Stéphane Dujarric said in New York on Tuesday. Guterres is currently examining with the WHO whether the conditions for such an exit exist.

Correction: At first the dpa – and also The Versatiles.de in this report – reported that the exit was already taking place. This is not correct and has now been corrected accordingly.

US President Donald Trump announced at the end of May in the middle of the corona pandemic that his country’s relations with the WHO had been severed. Trump accuses the WHO of being late in informing about the risk of the corona virus and being under government control in Beijing, even though China is making less contributions to the organization than the United States. He made the Geneva-based organization responsible for the high number of deaths. WHO also closed the necessary reforms. The US president also accuses China of not preventing the global spread of the corona virus and threatens to face consequences. Trump’s decision to end cooperation in the middle of the pandemic had sparked criticism worldwide.

Trump is pushing for schools to open despite high numbers of cases

Despite dramatically high coronavirus numbers, US President Donald Trump is pushing to reopen the country’s schools in the fall. “We will put pressure on the governors and everyone else to open schools,” Trump said at a round table with health and education officials. In doing so, he alluded to the democratic governors of states who, in large numbers, are defending themselves against Trump’s urging for a quick return to normal.

Trump had accused the Democrats of wanting to keep schools and universities closed, not for health reasons, but for political reasons. He did not provide evidence for this allegation. The US President sharply criticized Harvard, the US elite university that announced on Monday that it would hold all lectures online due to the corona virus in the winter semester. “I think they make it easy for them, and I think they should be ashamed,” said Trump.

With a total of approximately three million confirmed coronavirus infections, the United States is one of the worst affected countries by the pandemic. Most recently, the corona virus had spread especially in the southern states of California, Florida and Texas.

Corona protests in Serbia – Police use tear gas

In front of the parliament building in Belgrade, thousands of people protested against new restrictions in the corona pandemic on Tuesday evening. In the night of Wednesday there were riots and clashes with the police, according to local media. The riot police used tear gas against the demonstrators after a larger group tried to storm the parliament building.

President Aleksandar Vučić had announced a new curfew for the coming weekend just a few hours earlier on television due to the infection. The situation in the country was serious, the President emphasized in his speech. The capital is particularly badly affected. “All hospitals in Belgrade are almost full,” said Vucic. Therefore a ban on going out is imposed from Friday to Monday. The most recent curfew was in May. As of Wednesday, meetings of more than five people are also prohibited – both indoors and outdoors.

Previously, the Corona cases in the Balkans had increased significantly about eight weeks after the first easing of the anti-corona measures: Serbia reported 13 new deaths as a result of Covid 19 diseases on Tuesday – the highest daily value since the pandemic started. In addition, 299 new infections with the corona virus were registered. In the past week, the country recorded between 250 and 350 new cases every day. As of Tuesday, there were more than 16,000 infections and 330 deaths detected in Serbia.

Brazil’s President Bolsonaro infected with coronavirus

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has been infected with the corona virus. The head of state said on Tuesday after a positive test in a military hospital in the capital Brasília. According to media reports, the head of state had previously shown symptoms: he had a fever and body aches. On Monday, contrary to his custom, Bolsonaro wore a mask and advised a trailer not to approach him. On Tuesday, he told the CNN news outlet that his fever had dropped. He attributed this to the drug hydroxychloroquine, which he had advertised as well as US President Donald Trump.

Brazil is currently one of the focal points of the corona pandemic alongside the USA. To date, 1.6 million people have been shown to be infected with the corona virus in the largest country in Latin America, and more than 66,000 have died. On Tuesday evening, the Ministry of Health confirmed more than 45,000 new infections and 1254 other deaths in 24 hours. Experts assume that the actual numbers are significantly higher, since only a little testing is carried out in Brazil.

The Brazilian government has played down the pandemic from the start. Bolsonaro repeatedly referred to the coronavirus as “light flu” and resisted protective measures. The right-wing leader feared the economic damage of a lockdown. Again and again he appeared in public without a face mask, triggered mass casseroles and took selfies with followers.

At the weekend, too, Bolsonaro was again a lot of people, sometimes without a mask: On Saturday, he attended a meal at the US embassy with several ministers and one of his sons on the occasion of American Independence Day. He also flew to the state of Santa Catarina to get an idea of ​​the situation after the severe storms.

Catalonia also wants to introduce strict mask requirements outdoors

After an increase in corona infections, the Spanish region of Catalonia wants to introduce a mask requirement outdoors, which should apply practically everywhere and under all circumstances. The Catalan government spokeswoman Meritxell Budó announced on Tuesday in Barcelona that the regional civil defense should decide on the exact arrangement of the order. “But the idea is that the duty should always apply everywhere, regardless of the distance between people,” said Budó.
