Coronavirus update: Latest news from around the world

The coronavirus pandemic has brought countries to a standstill. In many places, as countries reopen, Covid-19 cases are on the rise. Follow here for the latest.

Now NBC - look in a mirror. Then look on a box. Now Dem politicians so focused on masks for non-protesters that people ignore other precautions. I bet there are people testing positive but think it's ok to be out and about with a mask because that's the message-wear a mask to keep others safe. Now Easy. Trump. When the president himself doesn’t believe in masks or laughs about wearing masks or undermines the CDC recommendation while the rest of the world adheres to it, we get to be the country with the highest number of cases.

Now At least wear them for the poor souls who work in businesses providing goods and services for you, wear them for their families and friends if not yours, wear them period... dammit. Now I don't see the issue. Leave it as is. Pretty sure this how the term 'cleansing the gene pool' started. You want to believe you're invincible, don't wear the mask then. Hopefully you won't end up in ICU. This is like drinking & driving.

Now People used to freak out went DUI laws went into affect Now Now Now Are you smarter than a 5th grader? A) walk around in large crowds B) going to huge gatherings with friends C) wear a mask when out in public D) go to places without a mask cause you don’t care and don’t care about others around you? Answer is C. Wear a mask out in public

Now Now Now Two words. President Trum.. nvm whatever. Wear a mask if you care about people. Now One. Fucking. Guy. It’s. Not. Hard. NBC you should be better than this. Now Now Now Because idiots listen to conspiracy theorists. Now

NBC News @NBCNewsLIVE: Joe Biden delivers remarks on his economic plan. Communist dictator (murdered millions) Mao Zedong's dictum & the slogan of Chinese Communist Party - 'women hold half of the sky'. Sleepy Joe Biden's rhetoric in a fundraiser - 'Women hold half of the sky'. “I’m gonna take money from this person that has more money and I’m gonna give it to that person that has less money” is not an economic plan...

Biden opens up 11-point lead in NBC News/WSJ pollThe presumptive Democratic nominee has a 51-40 percent lead, while 72 percent say the U.S. is on wrong track. People now realizing this country won’t make it under Trump. Everything he touches either dies or goes bankrupt. I am voting for Joe Biden. Doesn’t matter. VOTE!

Biden opens up 11-point national lead over Trump in NBC News/WSJ pollJoe Biden opens up an 11-point lead over President Trump, while 7 in 10 voters say the country is on the wrong track, NBC News/WSJ poll says. Questions to ask and consider when analyzing political polls. If it wasnt for fake news you wouldnt have anything to say at all That's shocking that two Anti-Trump, Liberal media organizations would have a poll that says Joe Biden is polling ahead of Trump. You would have thought they would have learned from 2016 that their disinformation campaigns don't work when it's election time.
