China and Korea report new infections; Trump wants less testing

Beijing China and South Korea reported new cases of coronavirus outbreaks Sunday, threatening to recover, President Donald Trump said, and reduce U.S. testing to prevent ineffective data showing increased infections.

Chinese authorities have registered 25 newly confirmed cases - 22 in Beijing and three in neighboring Hebei province. He said that 2.3 million people were tested in an effort to curb the spread of capital, leading to the closure of the largest wholesale food market.

Authorities in South Korea reported 48 new cases. Half the capital is in Seoul. Ten people are in the central city of Daejong, indicating that the virus is becoming more widespread as the immune system relaxes.

The head of the World Health Organization warned on Friday that global health outbreaks are accelerating after 150,000 new cases were reported daily the previous day.

According to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University, the new coronavirus has killed more than 454,000 people and infected more than 8.5 million. The correct number is considered too high because there are not many cases available.

At a campaign rally, Trump said Saturday he would like his administration to slow down the virus test. He said the United States tested 25 million people, but in most cases found the "bad part."

"When you test to that extent, you're going to find more people, you're going to find more cases," Trump said in Tulsa, Oklahoma. "So I tell my people, 'Slow down the test, please.'

In the November presidential election, Trump accused his potential Democratic rival, former Vice President Joe Biden of campaigning, of "pushing politics for the safety and economic well-being of the American people."

Some governments, including Spain, Britain, and France, restrict access and restore business operations. But the number of cases is increasing in South Africa, Brazil, the United States, and a few other countries.

The total number of cases on Saturday increased by more than 50,000 compared to the previous day, the Brazilian Ministry of Health said. President Zaire Bolsonaro is cutting losses in three months despite nearly 50,000 deadly incidents.

South Africa recorded 4,966 new cases and 46 deaths in a single day on Saturday. Despite the rise, President Cyril Ramaphosa announced this week that more of one of the world's toughest lockdowns is looming. Casinos, beauty salons, and sit-down restaurant services are allowed to reopen.

In the United States, the state of Arizona reported 3,109 new infections, a record low on Friday, and 26 deaths. The state of Nevada also reported 445 new cases.

According to Johns Hopkins, the outbreak killed about 120,000 people in the United States.

China, which began the outbreak in December, and South Korea, the second country to report an increase in epidemics, eased travel and trade restrictions as new cases fell. After jumping into the transition, he recently reaffirmed intelligence and some other limitations.

The Beijing Health Commission gave no details on where the latest cases came from. China's capital's largest wholesale food market closed on June 13 as dozens of people working there tested positive.

The agency responsible for the Ming burials, a tourist destination in Beijing's northwest, will close indoor areas as a safety precaution. Visitors are allowed in public areas but need to wear masks and check for fever.

In South Korea, employees at the Door-to-Door Sales Company in Seoul found about 200 infections, mostly over 60, according to the Korea Center for Disease Control and Prevention. At least 70 infections in Seoul have been linked to the Table Tennis Club, whose members have also sent the virus to the church.

South Korean officials are reluctant to enforce strong socio-differences to avoid hurting the fragile economy.

In the Middle East, the Palestinian Authority resumed sanctions on the West Bank on Saturday after 86 positive tests. Prime Minister Mohammed Shtayya has announced that the city of Hebron has been suspended and residents are being kept under a five-day curfew. Another city has to separate Nablus for two days.

In Europe, Germany reported 687 new cases, the highest one-day toll in a month, following a better outbreak than the larger European countries.

Spain has reduced the need for 14-day detention of British visitors effective Sunday. British travelers make up the bulk of Spain's tourism industry, which is particularly badly hit.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson's government has said it will announce next week whether Britain will relax the social harassment clause that requires people to live 2 meters (6. feet) away.

Business groups are lobbying for a distance of up to 1 meter (3 feet) to facilitate the reintroduction of the British economy. Britain has the highest official death toll in Europe and the third-largest in the world, exceeding 42,500.
