01:15 GMT – Test rate positivity in California
Only 3.5 percent of COVID-19 tests returned positive in California over the past seven days, the lowest level since the state began reporting data in March, according to a report in the Los Angeles Times.
The paper says its data analysis also shows new confirmed cases at the lowest level since mid-June and hospitalizations at the lowest level since early April.
00:15 GMT – Judge in U.S. Rules Pennsylvania ‘Restrictions’ Unconstitutional’
A federal judge in the state of Pennsylvania in the United States has ruled that the blocking measures imposed in March to curb the spread of COVID-19 are “unconstitutional.”
The measures, including closing businesses and a limit on the size of meetings, were challenged in court by several Republican lawmakers and small business owners, who argued that the restrictions put their businesses at risk.
Judge William Stickman ruled in their favor and said that even if the governor of the state acted with “good intentions to address a public health emergency”, he had no right to violate the fundamental freedoms of citizens.
“There is no doubt that this country has faced and will face emergencies of any kind,” the judge wrote. “But resolving a national crisis can never be allowed to replace the commitment to individual freedom that underpins the American experiment.”
00:00 GMT – Southwest China’s border town to begin mass testing
The Chinese city of Ruili, which lies on the border with Myanmar, will begin testing the nucleic acid of all residents after two people were found to have COVID-19 on Sunday.
Both patients are both from Myanmar and entered China illegally, according to state broadcaster CGTN. They were isolated in hospital along with five others. About 190 close contacts of the two have also been put in isolation.
A blockade across the city has been set up in Ruili and all residents have been told to stay home.
