Monday's #Coronavirus thread starts here, as we hope Europe continues to make progress against the spread of #Covid19.
All the news as it happens throughout the day but I'll particularly be watching two things
Countries heading back up again
Deaths falling 10-14 days after peak
#USA continues to surge - initial figures for Sunday not yet in (this total always increases anyway when regions which didn't report over the weekend add their data)

But one big headline came from #Florida, where the Sunshine State went back over 10,000 #Covid19 cases in a day
..it's the first time since July #Florida hit 10k, and for the last 3 months FLA has not even touched 7,000

Today #USA should experience a total of between 158,000 and 180,000 cases as it edges towards 200k in the coming days. I'm predicting 172,000 by the end of the day

Here is Sunday's #Coronavirus/#Covid19 megathread with the important news and data as it unfolds.

New lockdowns planned, two more big, badly hit countries turn things around as Europe continues to recover, but death rates still increase.
First good news
I said the turnaround was imminent for #Germany
Late last night we got confirmation that they had lowered the infection rate

By Saturday night Germany had registered just over 16,000 new #Covid19 cases, 1000 fewer than the previous Sat

#Austria is still the most #Covid19 infected nation in Europe, but it too saw its first fall in numbers for weeks.

That didn't stop Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz announcing an even stricter lockdown from Tuesday when all schools will also close for two and a half weeks

Records galore.... it's super Saturday in the #Coronavirus megathread.

I'll start though with some stunning new records and frightening totals late Friday evening and overnight, as the battle against #Covid19 continues...
*** BREAKING ***

The global record of 643,000 new #Covid19 cases in a day has been beaten again. It's now 654,000

And #USA has yet again smashed the world record for a single country. Yesterday it was just over 160,000, but now it's an astonishing 181,000
Good news for #Germany
They managed to just avoid a new national #Covid19 record by just 250 cases.

Just 4% up on the same time last week, and with cases dropping off over the weekend, I am certain Germany won't set a new record now.

As the coronavirus epidemic deepens, steps are being taken by the Czech Government to avoid the collapse of the health system, which is burdened by an rising number of hospitalizations and the spread of infection among medical personnel.
The government is also seeking to gain funding from abroad to tide over hospitals at the height of the outbreak, in addition to ordering in medical students and calling on volunteers.
The Czech Government has called for all those with medical experience, including those who have left their profession or are employed abroad, to come back and help as the Czech Republic is preparing for the worst health crisis in its recent history.

#Turkey needs to create a new Europe Doctrine. Today, we witness a #European reality that is seemingly homogeneous yet in reality extremely heterogeneous. #EU and European nations are incapable of giving a monoblock response to any regional or global issue, still far from
embodying the principle of political unity, and we face with a European practice in which internal unbalances are adorned with internal fault lines.

When we draw out a general "cluster" map of #Europe currently inside, we see that at least six different "basins" formed:
1. First and formost is the famous "#Paris-#Berlin" line

2. The category of countries in #WesternEurope "administered" jointly by #France and #Germany (#Austria and Benelux countries).

3. #Latin alliance

4. #Visegrad Group based in Central and #EasternEurope

The Czech Army has started preparations for the construction of a field hospital at the Prague Exhibition Center. In Hradec Kralove (Kรถniggrรคtz), around 100 kilometers away,
the first containers with medical equipment were loaded on Saturday, as the Ministry of Defense announced.

The convoy is scheduled to make its way to the capital on Monday. "The fight against the pandemic is now not only the number one task for the army,"
said Defense Minister Lubomir Metnar. The field hospital should be available as reserve capacity in the event that the hospitals are overloaded with corona patients. It has a fully equipped operating room, intensive care unit, laboratory and X-ray machines.

In the Czech Republic, a national emergency is to come into force again from midnight on Monday night.
The government under Prime Minister Andrej Babis had decided to declare a state of emergency because of a "rocket-like increase" in the corona numbers.
Among other things, it enables the government to restrict civil rights such as freedom of assembly and to take measures without the consent of parliament. Most recently, a new high in daily corona infections was reached in the Czech Republic on Friday with 3792 cases.

The populist ruling party ANO led by Prime Minister Andrej Babis has surprisingly clearly won the regional election in the Czech Republic. The movement garnered the most votes overall, ranking first in ten of the 13 regions.
The CSU statistics agency announced this after counting almost all votes. According to observers, the ANO of multibillionaire Babis will find it difficult to find coalition partners to provide the regional president in each case.
The co-ruling Social Democrats (CSSD) suffered dramatic losses and gained just under five percent of the vote. The strongest opposition party was the Czech pirates.

In the fight against the rising number of corona infections, the Czech Republic is introducing a curfew at 10 p.m. in pubs and restaurants.
"Under the influence of alcohol there is much more frequent contact and the disregard of elementary rules," said the new health minister Roman Prymula on Wednesday. The measure is initially limited to two weeks.
Industry associations fear a drop in sales of up to 30 percent. There is a distinctive pub culture in the Czech Republic. With more than 140 liters a year per capita, the Czechs are among the world champions in beer consumption.

Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis has admitted failings in the fight against the novel corona virus. His government acted wrongly when it relaxed the corona measures before the summer vacation, Babis said in a televised speech that evening.
Babis said he let himself be carried away by the summer time and the "general mood". "That was a mistake I don't want to repeat." The government in Prague had initially responded to the corona pandemic with strict measures and, among other things,
imposed a mask requirement that also applies outdoors. However, before the start of the summer vacation, the government relaxed most of the measures. Recently, the number of cases in the Czech Republic rose sharply again.
