CORONAVIRUS (Covid-19) : ALL THE LATEST LIVE DAILY NEWS UPDATES WORLDWIDE


Updated daily and added to throughout the day:

Coronavirus - 5th August

Wed Aug 05 2020, 09:05 by Kitkat

Summary for Wednesday, 5th August


  • Spread of the coronavirus in the UK could have been slowed with earlier quarantine restrictions on arrivals, says a report from MPs
  • Travellers told to self-isolate in early stages were mostly from Asia but countries such as Spain should have been included, they say
  • Thousands of infected people are likely to have arrived in the days before lockdown was imposed in late March, report adds
  • Australia records another daily record in virus cases, driven by an outbreak in Melbourne, which is under a new lockdown
  • Sri Lankans go to the polls to vote for a new parliament, with virus safety measures in place
  • Global death toll has passed 700,000; more than 11 million people have recovered from the virus


UK’s border policy was a 'serious mistake’, say MPs


Krazy Kats - Portal 36e6c110

The UK’s coronavirus outbreak could have been curbed more effectively had quarantine restrictions on arrivals been imposed at an earlier stage, MPs have said.
The Home Affairs committee said it was a “serious mistake” not to bring in tougher border measures earlier on in the pandemic.
The committee said ministers had underestimated the threat of importing the virus from Europe at a time when there were serious outbreaks in Italy and Spain.
A Home Office spokeswoman disputed the committee’s findings, saying all of the government’s decisions had "been guided by the science”.
During February and early March, all passengers from China, Iran, South Korea and later Italy were asked to self-isolate for 14 days on arrival.
But a decision on 13 March to end self-isolation advice for international arrivals not displaying symptoms had been "inexplicable", said the MPs.
Currently, travellers arriving from certain high-risk countries - including UK nationals - are asked to provide an address where they will self-isolate for 14 days.

Victoria sees record rise as more borders are shut


The Australian state of Victoria has reported another record rise in coronavirus cases, days after it tightened its lockdown measures to curb the disease.
A further 725 infections and 15 deaths - including that of a man in his 30s - were confirmed in the state on Wednesday, Australia’s worst day yet.
The record numbers came ahead of another wave of restrictions which will come into effect in Victoria at midnight tonight.
On Sunday, Premier Daniel Andrews declared a state of disaster . He announced a night-time curfew and restrictions on leaving home for residents of Melbourne, the country's second most populous city.
Australia has fared better than many countries due to effective suppression measures early in the pandemic, but since June, the outbreak in Victoria has worsened significantly.
On Wednesday, the state of Queensland said it would close its borders with neighbouring New South Wales to halt the spread of the virus.

Analysis: More accusations of serious errors


Dominic Casciani - Home Affairs Correspondent
The Home Affairs committee's report is the second parliamentary report in a week that's accused the government of serious errors. Last week's criticised how hospital patients were discharged to care homes without a Covid test .
Both reports amount to the same accusation - poor or inexplicable decisions that didn't help slow the march of the pandemic.
The MPs cite examples from around the world where countries were requiring arrivals to comply with stringent quarantine or monitoring measures.
The government insists that its general message from 13 March to the public to stay at home, if they had symptoms, worked.
But that recommendation was not the same as clear guidance, or an absolute legal requirement, for passengers to self-isolate even if they were feeling perfectly well.
And that, say the MPs, meant travellers in March were able to arrive and move about much more freely at a critical moment in the spread of the virus across the UK.
