What happened today?
As our live page draws to a close, have a look back at the day's main coronavirus-related developments:
Travellers arriving in the UK from dozens of countries no longer have to self-isolate for two weeks. See the details here.
Around the world:
Coronavirus infections rose by a record 228,102 during the last 24 hours, according to the World Health Organization
Schools in Hong Kong will be shut from Monday after a spike in local cases of Covid-19
Ireland's Taoiseach Micheál Martin expressed concerns about travellers coming into the Republic of Ireland from Great Britain, after quarantine measures were relaxed
Top US diseases expert Dr Anthony Fauci said some states in the country reopened too fast
A state of emergency declared in Italy in response to the coronavirus crisis looks likely to now be extended beyond 31 July, Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said
Virus outbreak at refugee and asylum seeker housing centre
A "small" outbreak of Covid-19 has been reported at an accommodation centre for asylum seekers and refugees in Wakefield in West Yorkshire, northern England.
Wakefield Council said a number of residents at Urban House, in Love Lane, had tested positive for the virus, adding that those affected have been isolated and given treatment and support at another location.
Anna Hartley, Wakefield Council’s director of public health, said: “A mobile testing unit is being set up at the site and we’re continuing to work closely with Mears Group, the Home Office and Public Health England to help limit any further potential spread.
“Please be reassured that the risk to those in the local area is very low, however, we ask everyone to please continue to follow government guidance on regular handwashing and social distancing to help keep yourself and others safe."
When can I go to the gym, nail salon, tattoo studio or pool?
Gyms, nail bars, swimming pools and tattoo parlours have been among the places still closed in most of the UK.
But they now have reopening dates in England. They are:
But with gyms still closed in many parts of the UK, how easy is it to lose weight in lockdown?
Science journalist Dr Michael Mosley says being obese puts you at a "significantly greater risk", and any vaccine against the virus is less likely to work.
"Being obese messes with your immune system," he tells BBC Radio Scotland. "It's not just about reducing your risk of the nasty complications should you get the virus, it's also about ensuring the vaccine is going to work."
Dr Mosley says it's a "fallacy" that exercise is a good way of losing weight, however.
"It’s great for all sorts of things - like improving your mood - but a pretty terrible way of losing weight because you have to do so much. It is about cutting calories and changing what you’re eating," he says.
He told Times Radio that signing up to the EU programme would have meant abandoning Britain's own procurement schemes, which were more developed.
He said Britain would not have been allowed to "have a say" in "the vaccines that were procured, the price, [or] the quantity of the delivery schedule".
He added that one of the "conditions" of the EU's scheme was that Britain would have had to stop its "own negotiations and only do them through the European Commission, and we weren't prepared to do that".
He insisted: "We think we will go faster this way."
Now pubs and bars have to apply for permission to pour beer down drains.
Water companies say they have been inundated with requests. Severn Trent has given consent for 3.5 million litres to be disposed of, while Thames Water has allowed three million.
The British Beer and Pub Association (BBPA) estimated in May that 70 million pints would be lost due to Covid-19.
Emma McClarkin, from the BBPA, said: "The need to destroy so much beer really shows how much our brewing and pub sectors have been affected by this crisis."
'Go back to work if you can' - PM
UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has urged Britons to go back to work if they can, in a change of position.
Speaking earlier during an online session of People's PMQs, Mr Johnson said it was "very important" people go back to work now "if they can", adding he wanted the public to do this as "carefully as possible".
He said the public had followed the government's earlier mantra to "stay at home if you can", but it was now time they followed the message of "go back to work if you can".
He said it was "very important" people try to live their lives "more normally" and for people to feel "confident" to go to shops, restaurants and back to work, provided "we all follow the guidance".
BreakingUK will not join EU Covid-19 vaccine scheme
Sir Tim Barrow, the UK's Ambassador to the European Union, has confirmed that the UK has decided not to join the EU scheme for Covid-19 vaccine procurement.
In a letter to the Secretary-General of the European Commission, he said the UK would not participate because it "would be required to stop its negotiations with manufacturers with which the EU launched negotiations" and because the Commission said "it is not possible for the UK to have a role in the governance shaping decisions on which manufacturers to negotiate with, or the price, volume and delivery schedule negotiated".
Sir Tim went on to write that there could still be collaboration between the UK and the EU on areas such as "sharing of information on promising vaccine candidates" and "vaccine trials" and "manufacturing investments and capacity building".
The lockdown babies who technically don't exist
"It's been a weird feeling to know she technically doesn't exist," says Emma Pratt.
Her newborn daughter, Skye, was born the week before lockdown began. She is now almost four months old, but her birth still hasn't been registered.
Normally, babies have to be registered with the local council within 42 days of being born, or 21 days in Scotland. But during the coronavirus lockdown, many councils paused all birth registrations - and are only now starting up again.
BreakingGovernment 'looking at' mandatory face coverings in England's shops
It's understood the government's looking at whether to make face coverings mandatory in shops in England.
Senior government sources said that while no decision has yet been made it's an issue that's being kept under review.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson told an online session of "People's PMQs" on Friday: "We need to be stricter in insisting that people wear face coverings in confined places where they are meeting people that they don't normally meet.
"So that's why it's mandatory already on on public transport and we're looking at ways of making sure that people really do observe, but you do have face coverings in, in, in, in shops for instance where, you know, there is a risk of transmission."
Can chlorine kill coronavirus?

Chlorine is used as a disinfectant in pools and can easily disable viruses, including coronavirus, as well as more resilient bugs such as bacteria.
The chemical has to be used at the right concentration, but this will be standard practice.
There are two infection risks in the pool - other swimmers themselves and water they may have contaminated.
Sage, the government’s science advisers, say the risk of catching the virus through water is "negligible". But being within 2m of other swimmers - perhaps when catching your breath in the shallow end - is a bigger risk.
Remember the risks are about more than just the pool. Coronavirus is spread through close contact, so beware in a cramped changing room. And it can linger on surfaces such as lockers, benches, shower buttons and taps.
Russia virus deaths and cases rise
The number of confirmed coronavirus infections in Russia has increased by 6,635 over the past 24 hours, officials say.
It brings the total number of cases in the country to 713,936, Russia's coronavirus crisis response centre said.
Over the same period, an additional 174 deaths were recorded, bringing the number of fatalities to 11,017, the centre added.
Russia has also today reported year-on-year figures for deaths in the country for the month of May.
Rosstat, the state statistics agency, said 18,375 more deaths were reported this year, of which it said 7,444 cases were directly attributed to Covid-19.
London mayor: Make face coverings mandatory in public

More news on face coverings - Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has called on the government to make face coverings mandatory in busy and enclosed public places.
In a letter to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Sadiq Khan said he was "frustrated" the measures had not already been introduced.
However, Mr Khan said precautions needed to be implemented in shops and hairdressers.
As pubs, gyms and restaurants reopen across England, the mayor said face coverings are "vital for public health" and "could play an increasing role in supporting public confidence and our economic recovery".
He said: "The widespread use of face coverings are a visible signal that Londoners are willing to take the steps needed to keep each other safe.
"They show how seriously, as a society, we are treating the threat of coronavirus and they are a physical reminder that the virus is still out there," he added.
What have EU coronavirus schemes delivered?
The UK government is expected to
confirm later whether it will opt out of an EU scheme to secure potential
Covid-19 vaccine supplies.
The EU has launched other schemes,
during the pandemic, to secure things like testing kits and personal protective
equipment (PPE) - negotiating with suppliers on behalf of EU member states.
The UK was allowed to join these
(because it is still in a transition period with the EU) but chose not to.
So, how are the schemes getting on?
The European Commission says its
PPE procurement plan can potentially provide up to 20 million goggles, 12
million face shields and over 350 million masks of different types. It says the
ventilator scheme can deliver 110,000 units.
says orders so far include: Belgium placing one for 2.6 million FFP2 masks and Austria
order for 25,000 goggles and 100,000 surgical masks was delivered in June. Bulgaria’s
order for 55 ventilators is expected to be delivered by the end of July.
has received its order for 1,000,000 gloves.
