'Test and trace' and lockdown easing lead Sunday papers
The failings of the UK’s testing and tracing policy as well as freedoms allowed by the easing of lockdown measures lead the UK's Sunday papers .
The Sunday People says the system is a “national disgrace” while the Sunday Telegraph reports that the policy was abandoned in the early days of the pandemic as the system could only cope with five cases a week.
Despite the prime minister’s plea to move on from the Dominic Cummings saga, his aide still appears on the front of the Observer and the Mail on Sunday .
The latter says Boris Johnson has rebuked Mr Cummings for the media storm surrounding his lockdown trip to Durham.
And for those who are missing Brexit talk, the Sunday Times splashes on the European Union's chief negotiator warning the prime minister to keep his promises or face a no-deal exit.
Pictures from the protests and riots in the US also feature on many front pages as well as the launch of the SpaceX rocket.
LA closes testing centres amid protests
Protests across the US are escalating in response to the killing of George Floyd by police officers in Minneapolis.
In Los Angeles, officials have closed down the city’s Covid-19 testing centres. LA Mayor Eric Garcetti told reporters this was a safety precaution, adding: “Now is the time to go home. Come back, protest peacefully when there is peace.”
Cities across the US have imposed curfews in an attempt to contain the demonstrations , and Minnesota Governor Tim Walz called on protesters to wear protective masks and socially distance.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo tweeted about systemic racism in the US, linking the collective anger at George Floyd’s death to African Americans being disproportionately more likely to die of the coronavirus.
Why are black people dying from #COVID at higher rates than white people? Why are health outcomes worse in communities of color? Why did George Floyd die? Why does this happen again and again? It’s all related.
Anti-lockdown protests in ArgentinaHundreds of people in Argentina have taken part in protests against the country's strict lockdown, demanding officials end the measures that were first introduced more than two months ago.

A small number also held signs repeating debunked conspiracy theories about vaccines and 5G networks.
About 500 people have died of coronavirus in Argentina and the country has had about 16,000 confirmed cases.

Sturgeon: Virus could still run out of controlScotland's First Minister has been on Sky's Sophy Ridge on Sunday programme where she warned that there was still a "very significant risk that the virus could run out of control again".
She said that was why Scotland was going to be "moving very cautiously" in easing lockdown restrictions.
Sturgeon also said that there should be a clear distinction between politicians making decisions and scientists advising.
It was elected officials who should take responsibilities and not scientists, she said.
She said she felt "deep personal regret" over the number of people dying in Scottish care homes and said she was making the hardest decisions of her career.
The mystery of 'silent spreaders'
As the crisis has unfolded, scientists have discovered more evidence about a strange and worrying feature of the coronavirus.
While many people who become infected develop a cough, fever and loss of taste and smell, others have no symptoms at all and never realise they're carrying Covid-19.
Researchers say it's vital to understand how many are affected this way and whether "silent spreaders" are fuelling the pandemic.

Raab 'did not know where Cummings was'
Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said he did not know that the prime minister's aide Dominic Cummings had travelled to Durham while he was filling in for Boris Johnson during his coronavirus illness.
There have been calls for Mr Cummings to resign after it was revealed he had travelled to his family's home in Durham from London during lockdown, as well as making a 60-mile round trip from there to Barnard Castle "to test his eyesight".
Mr Raab told Sky News's Sophy Ridge on Sunday he had only known Mr Cummings was "out of action".
He said: "I just knew that he was out of action because he had come down with coronavirus.
"Given the situation we were in with the prime minister taken ill, and very seriously ill as it later emerged, I was just focused with the government and with a great cabinet team and we continued to focus relentlessly on dealing with the virus."
