At least 21 states pause reopening or take new steps to limit the spread of COVID-19

COVID closings after openings

Days after the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention expressed concern about “significant increases” in coronavirus cases, the United States surpassed 50,000 daily cases twice this week, a new daily high.

That milestone was reached as governors and other state leaders grapple with plans to reopen their economies. Some are postponing further reopening while others are tightening rules to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Among the measures: shutting down high-capacity businesses such as bars and gyms, halting elective surgeries and requiring people to wear masks.

Finnish Air Force removes swastika from logo after 100 years

Finnish air force removes swastika

The Finnish Air Force quietly dropped a swastika from the official logo of its Air Force Command and replaced it with a golden eagle after a century.

While the use of a swastika in the Air Force Command's insignia dates back to before Nazi Germany, the change occurred to avoid confusion and false associations.

"Undeniably, we've had to explain from time to time the history of the (Finnish Air Force) swastika that dates back to 1918," said Brig. Gen. Jari Mikkonen at Air Force Command Finland. "It caused misunderstandings with our foreign partners, so continuing to use it was considered inappropriate and unnecessary."

US reports daily case record of 52,000 after Trump says Covid-19 will 'disappear'

US reports daily cases over 52,000Donald Trump has said he believes the coronavirus will “just disappear”, as the US recorded 52,000 new cases on Wednesday, according to Johns Hopkins figures, a new all-time daily high.

Eight states had reported new single-day highs of freshly diagnosed cases on Tuesday, when the national daily total for new cases sat at just over 44,000, a record until the new figure emerged. The spike followed a warning by the public health expert Dr Anthony Fauci that the US is “going in the wrong direction” and infections could more than double, to reach 100,000 cases a day.

The government loan comes as the company has experienced competitive problems over the past five years, and YRC's stock dropped nearly 30 percent this year. It was only worth $70 million at the end of Tuesday, CNN reported.

Covid parties

Students in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 have been attending parties in the city and surrounding area as part of a disturbing contest to see who can catch the virus first, a city council member told ABC News on Wednesday.

Tuscaloosa City Councilor Sonya McKinstry said students have been organizing "COVID parties" as a game to intentionally infect each other with the contagion that has killed more than 127,000 people in the United States. She said she recently learned of the behavior and informed the city council of the parties occurring in the city.

She said the organizers of the parties are purposely inviting guests who have COVID-19.

"They put money in a pot and they try to get COVID. Whoever gets COVID first gets the pot. It makes no sense," McKinstry said. "They're intentionally doing it."
