CNN: The coronavirus has infected about 10% of the world’s population, the World Health Organization estimates.
The official count stands at about 35.3 million, but health experts agree that’s probably a massive undercount. The CDC says cases in the US alone could be underestimated by at least 90%. The virus is also sweeping through major institutions.
At least 2,000 TSA members have tested positive, as have at least 159 staff in the EU’s executive branch. Meanwhile, the Trump administration is still angling for a pre-Election Day vaccine by reportedly blocking new FDA vaccine guidelines that would make that tight time line all but impossible.
The CDC has updated its guidance yet again to clarify that Covid-19 can spread by airborne transmission as well as close contact.
