The World Health Organization warns countries are on a “dangerous track” as coronavirus cases are surging across many regions, including in Europe, where governments are introducing sweeping new measures in an effort to contain infections.
Spain has declared a state of emergency and ordered a nationwide curfew. Italy imposed an early curfew for restaurants and has closed gyms, pools and movie theaters. France reported over 52,000 new cases on Sunday, a new record. It now has the fifth-highest caseload in the world.
Meanwhile, in Poland, President Andrzej Duda has tested positive for COVID-19. He said he had no symptoms so far and apologized to those who must quarantine after coming into contact with him.
In Latin America, Colombia became the third country in the region to top 1 million cases, joining Brazil and Argentina.
