South Africa president says daily increase in cases 'stabilising'
South Africa has now recorded more than half a million cases of coronavirus, but President Cyril Ramaphosa says there are "promising signs" regarding rates of transmission.
In a statement, Mr Ramaphosa said 503,290 cases of coronavirus have been confirmed in South Africa and at least 8,153 deaths.
But he said there were reasons to be hopeful.
"After a rapid rise in infections over the last two months, the daily increase in infections appears to be stabilising, particularly in the Western Cape, Gauteng and Eastern Cape," he said.
"While it may be too soon to draw firm conclusions, this suggests that the prevention measures that South Africans have implemented are having an effect."
The president called on South Africans to "maintain... vigilance" until there were no more cases.
He warned that failing to do so could risk a "resurgence" of the virus in areas where rates are starting to stabilise.
South Africa is the hardest-hit country on the continent and accounts for half of all reported infections in Africa. It also has the fifth highest number of cases in the world after the US, Brazil, Russia and India.
Pelosi made the comments in response to a question about a Politico report. The report quoted Pelosi as saying Birx was “the worst” in a meeting with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Thursday.
In response, Birx told CNN's State of the Union she thought the criticism was triggered by a New York Times article which suggested she was too ready to embrace overly optimistic assessments of the situation.
"This was not a pollyannish view. I’ve never been called
pollyannish, or non-scientific, or non-data driven," she said.
"I will stake my 40-year career on those fundamental principles
of using data to implement better programmes and save lives."
Victoria was right to tighten lockdown, expert says
The Australian state of Victoria was right to impose stricter lockdown measures during the current outbreak because community transmission of coronavirus has become more widespread, a public health expert has said.
Maximilian de Courten, an epidemiologist at the University of Victoria, said the outbreak was different to the first phase of infections earlier in the year.
In the early stages of the pandemic, most of the cases were imported from abroad with “very little spread of the virus in the community”, De Courten told the BBC.
“But now the virus is out in the community and the same lockdown measures from the earlier round were probably not strong enough,” the expert said.
He said a significant proportion of what he called “mystery cases” - those that cannot be traced back to work or home - had made matters worse this time.
"In comparison to the first wave in March and April, we had a fraction, about 10 to 15%, of cases where our trackers could not find out how they got infected in the community and those are the worrisome ones,” De Courten said.
It only takes a few untraceable cases to keep on igniting other outbreaks, he added.
This means those in the extremely vulnerable category no longer have to follow the previous shielding advice. They can return to work as long as the workplace is "Covid secure" and they may go outside as much as they like - but "should still try to keep overall social interactions low".
Those in this category will still receive some support from the NHS Volunteer scheme and will have access to priority supermarket delivery slots.
