2 Covid-19 cases increase in the US

The United States surpassed nine million cases of coronavirus on Friday, according to figures compiled by Johns Hopkins University.

On Thursday, 88,521 new cases of covid-19 were registered, the highest number in a single day in the country since the pandemic began.

Anthony Fauci, director of the US National Institute of Allergic and Infectious Diseases, warned that the country will not return to normal until the end of 2021 or, perhaps, 2022.

And that, considering the approval of a vaccine.

3 The outbreaks of covid-19 in Europe

France and Germany announced new four-week confinement orders this week in response to an increase in new COVID-19 cases.

In France, the measure began to take effect this Friday, according to President Emmanuel Macron.

The national confinement in Germany will be from Monday.

4 Terrorist attack in France

At least three people were killed Thursday in Nice, southern France, during a knife attack on the Notre Dame Basilica.

The French government described the fact as a terrorist act.

The city's mayor, Christian Estrosi, said the attacker was shot by police, but survived and was arrested.

France raised the alert level to "emergency" after the incident.

5 Halloween

The Halloween celebration takes place this year amid restrictions to maintain physical distancing due to the covid-19 pandemic.

Many of the decorations this 2020 have been inspired precisely by the new coronavirus.
