Here’s what you need to know this morning.
- The World Health Organization (WHO) has recorded the biggest global daily rise in infections, with the Americas accounting for most of the new cases
- Brazil’s death toll has risen above 50,000 - which is second only to the 120,000 fatalities in the US

Brazil deaths rise above 50,000
Brazil has become the second country, after the US, to register more than 50,000 deaths linked to Covid-19.
The grim milestone comes amid growing political unrest, and days after the country confirmed more than one million coronavirus infections.
Experts warn that the peak of the outbreak in Brazil is still weeks away.
On Sunday, the ministry announced that 641 more deaths had been registered in the past 24 hours, taking the total to 50,617.
Only the US has fared worse, with 2.2 million cases and nearly 120,000 deaths.
WHO records highest global cases in 24 hours
The World Health Organization (WHO) has recorded the biggest one-day increase in coronavirus cases, with the Americas responsible for most of the new infections.
The WHO said more than 183,000 new cases were reported in the past 24 hours.
Most - more than 50,000 - came from Brazil, followed by the US and India.
The number of confirmed cases is partly a reflection of increased testing around the world.
Australian 'setbacks' cause concernAustralia has been among the most successful places to tackle the virus – some states have gone weeks without a new case.
But a spike in infections in Victoria is providing the country's biggest concern for some time.
The south-eastern state has recorded more than 100 cases in the past week, mostly in Melbourne. Twelve of the 16 detected today were transmitted inside Australia, unlike many recently which have been infected overseas.
Victoria has extended a state of emergency declaration, re-imposed some lockdown measures, and issued warnings for six virus "hotspots".
"This is part of living with Covid-19," Prime Minister Scott Morrison told reporters today.
"There will be setbacks from time to time, but we have systems to deal with the setbacks."
Stricter measures reimposed in South Korean cityLaura Bicker - BBC News, Seoul
Pupils in Daejeon, South Korea, pictured in class last month - schools will remain open despite the new, stricter guidelines
South Korea’s fifth largest city, Daejeon, is going back to stricter social distancing measures after clusters of coronavirus cases.
The country has actually just reported its lowest number of new infections in nearly a month, with 17 cases reported in the past 24 hours, six of them from overseas.
But officials are still concerned about sporadic outbreaks, particularly in the city of Daejeon, around 50 miles south of Seoul.
All gatherings in public spaces such as museums, sports halls and libraries have been banned. Twenty-two churches used by the Christian sect, the Shincheonji Church of Jesus, have also been closed.
The church was at the centre of the country’s biggest outbreak in February when over 6,000 members were infected.
The Seoul city mayor said he was also making preparations in case there was a second wave of the virus.
Officials are recruiting more contact tracers and securing more hospital beds in case the infection takes hold in the capital.
Beijing infections drop after 'market spike'China has reported nine new cases in Beijing over the past 24 hours.
That’s down from 22 the previous day, and the first time it has been in single figures for more than ten days.
More than 230 cases have been recorded in the recent Beijing "spike". The outbreak was linked to a large food market, and triggered lockdowns and travel bans in neighbourhoods across the city.
Face masks now compulsory on Scottish public transportIn Scotland, face masks become compulsory on public transport from Monday as the country continues to ease its way out of lockdown.
The new rule covers buses, trains, the Glasgow Subway, Edinburgh trams, aircraft, enclosed areas onboard ferries, taxis and private hire cabs.
The Scottish government is also urging people to continue to limit travel.
Last week, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said face coverings could "help to reduce the risk of transmission", but stressed that physical distancing, hand washing and "good hygiene" were still necessary to prevent infection.
The same rule was imposed in England a week ago , but they are not mandatory on Welsh or Northern Irish public transport.
Deaths down, but cases stubbornly high in USThese two charts show the number of confirmed cases and deaths in the US since February.
While deaths are decreasing, the number of cases shows a slight increase.
French schooling now compulsoryIn France, going to school is now compulsory from Monday for everyone up to the age of 15.
Only lycées – or high schools, which cover the last three years of school education – are not affected.
Schools have been open for several weeks, but only on a voluntary basis.

UK PM to announce on Tuesday if pubs can reopenBritish PM Boris Johnson is expected to announce on Tuesday whether the hospitality sector - including pubs, restaurants and hotels - can reopen on 4 July and if the two-metre (6.5ft) distancing rule in England can be relaxed.
Mr Johnson has commissioned a review into social distancing guidelines that require people to remain two metres apart.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock has said England is "clearly on track" to further ease lockdown restrictions. But No 10 warned the moves would be reversed if they led to a virus surge.
Businesses and many MPs from Mr Johnson's own party have warned that large parts of the hospitality industry won't be viable unless the rule is changed.
They're calling for the distance to be reduced to one metre, in line with World Health Organization advice and countries including France and Denmark.

New Zealand extends ban on cruise shipsNew Zealand on Monday said it was extending its ban on cruise ships arriving in the country.
"We are extending the current cruise ship ban which was due to expire on 30 June," Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern told a press conference.
New Zealand has been one of the world's most successful countries in fighting the coronavirus. It has lifted all internal restrictions but measures at the border remain.
In the early stages of the pandemic, cruise ships have often been hotbed for the virus spreading and several of them have spent weeks at sea or quarantined in a harbour before passengers were allowed to disembark.

Japan pushes saliva testIf you’ve had a coronavirus test done, you might know that the nasal swab is not exactly the most pleasant of things to go through. Although harmless, many people find it very uncomfortable to have a swab going far up their nose.
A team of researchers in Japan say they have developed a saliva test that can give a result in as little as 25 minutes.
Medical firm Shionogi said its working with Japanese universities to develop the test and that it would even allow people to take the test at home.
In the UK, there’s currently a trial for a similar saliva test underway, with more than 14,000 front-line workers taking part

Pope worried by 'hypocrisy of certain political personalities'The coronavirus crisis should lead to more integrity and less hypocrisy in politics and society, Pope Francis has said.
In an excerpt from a recent interview with his biographer, the head of the Catholic church said: "This crisis is affecting us all, rich and poor alike and putting a spotlight on hypocrisy.
"I am worried by the hypocrisy of certain political personalities who speak of facing up to the crisis.
"Of the problem of hunger in the world, but who in the meantime manufacture weapons.
"This is a time to be converted from this kind of function of hypocrisy. It's a time for integrity. Either we are coherent with our beliefs or we lose everything."
Police deploy water cannon at The Hague's anti-lockdown protest
Police deployed mounted officers and water cannon when unrest broke out
Hundreds of people were arrested in The Hague in the Netherlands on Sunday, after a peaceful protest in the city turned violent.
Mayor Johan Remkes allowed demonstrators to gather at 13:00 local time (11:00 GMT) on Sunday after originally banning the anti-lockdown protest amid fears that people would not observe social distancing.
Police then said a small number of “troublemakers”, who they identified as football fans, threw stones and smoke bombs at officers after the demonstration broke up. Mounted officers and water cannon were deployed to tackle the unrest.
“The atmosphere is grim,” the official police Twitter account posted.
Mayor Remkes later said a small group was “deliberately aiming to disturb public order”. “This has nothing to do with demonstrating or freedom of expression,” he wrote.
The largely peaceful anti-lockdown demonstration later turned violent
Trump was 'joking' about slowing down testing - White House
At his first campaign rally for months on Saturday, President Donald Trump told his supporters it was the "double-edged sword" of comprehensive testing that had led to the US having the world's highest number of coronavirus cases.
"When you do testing... you are going to find more people, you will find more cases," he told attendees in Tulsa, Oklahoma. "So I said to my people: 'Slow the testing down.'"
The White House later said his comments were meant as a joke.
But he revisited the issue on Monday with a new tweet in which he argued that the more tests a country carried out, the more cases it was likely to find. However, some health experts have said this is not the case .
The US has nearly 2.3m reported cases of the virus and the highest number of deaths worldwide with nearly 120,000.
Donald J. Trump:
Our Coronavirus testing is so much greater (25 million tests) and so much more advanced, that it makes us look like we have more cases, especially proportionally, than other countries. My message on that is very clear!
Children 'developing post-traumatic stress' from pandemicChildren are developing serious mental health conditions, including post-traumatic stress, because of the coronavirus pandemic, a charity has warned.
In a report the Childhood Trust says disadvantage is leaving children extremely vulnerable.
As well as anxiety about their loved ones' health, many children are facing social isolation and hunger. Lack of internet access is also setting disadvantaged children back.
