Sweden recommends masks for rush hour, as COVID-19 deaths hit record

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Sweden on Wednesday took steps to increase measures against the novel coronavirus, recommending commuters wear masks on public transport during rush hour as the country announced a record death toll from COVID-19.

The updated guidance on face masks in a country that has been reluctant to impose changes of behaviour in response to the pandemic, comes a day after the national health agency recommended wider use of masks by healthcare workers.

On Wednesday, Sweden said it had registered 8,846 new coronavirus cases and 243 deaths, the highest in Sweden since the pandemic began, although the health agency said statistics over the Christmas period are skewed by less testing and delays in reporting deaths.

"We know that public transport means situations where congestion can be difficult to avoid ... then mouth protection can be useful," state epidemiologist Anders Tegnell said in a statement, which added that the recommendation was effective from Jan. 07.

On Dec. 18, Sweden's government recommended the use of face masks during congested travel hours, but didn't specify exact times or from when people should begin to wear them.

Wednesday's updated guidance from the country's health authority and Tegnell, who is the main architect of Sweden’s no-lockdown strategy, marks a shift in policy for the Nordic outlier's health experts.

Throughout the pandemic, Tegnell has cited poor evidence of the effectiveness of masks and fears that they might be used as an excuse to not isolate when people experience symptoms.

Sweden's total death toll stands at 8,727. Its death rate per capita is several times higher than that of its Nordic neighbours, but lower than in several European countries that opted for lockdowns.

Do not talk about herd immunity now!

Coronavirus daily death toll hits nearly 1,000 in highest rise since April

The UK has recorded another 981 coronavirus deaths – the highest rise since April, during the first wave of COVID-19.

It also reported 50,000 more coronavirus cases – the second highest daily rise, slightly below Tuesday’s increase of more than 53,000.

Wednesday’s death toll is more than double the 414 reported on Tuesday, and the highest daily rise of deaths within 28 days of a positive test since 28 April. The figures could include a lag in recording over the festive period.

Huge swathes of England are to be put into tougher restrictions, health secretary Matt Hancock said on Wednesday afternoon, as the government tries to tamp down on the growing numbers of infections.

Ireland will return to full lockdown for "at least" a month

Ireland will return to a full lockdown for "at least" a month — initially until Jan. 31 — in an attempt to get the latest surge in Covid-19 cases under control, Irish Prime Minister (Taoiseach) Micheál Martin announced on Wednesday.

The "Level 5" restrictions, which will come into force starting tomorrow, Dec. 31, include a ban on household visits and the closure of nonessential shops. Schools will remain closed until Jan. 11.

Martin described the situation as "extremely serious."
"“With the presence of the new strain and the pace of growth, this is not a time for nuance in our response,” he said."

“We must apply the brakes to movement and physical interaction across the country," Martin said.

“You should stay at home except for travel for work, education or other essential purposes, or to take exercise within 5km of home," he added.

Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Fulham called off due to Covid-19

Wednesday’s English Premier League encounter between Tottenham Hotspur and Fulham has become the latest fixture to be postponed following positive Covid-19 test results within Fulham’s players and first team staff.

The game was due to kick-off at 6 p.m. GMT at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London.

It’s the third game to be postponed this season after Aston Villa vs. Newcastle United (Dec. 4) and Everton vs. Manchester City (Dec. 28).

In a statement Tottenham said: “The Premier League informed us of the decision this afternoon, with Fulham having requested the postponement on the grounds of the number of COVID-19 positive cases among their players and staff.”

The team added that a new date for the fixture would be confirmed in due course.

The Premier League said that despite the postponement it “continues to have full confidence in its COVID-19 protocols and being able to continue to play our fixtures as scheduled.”

Former Harvard professor calls for a domestic travel ban after first case of the UK Covid-19 variant found in Colorado

After the first case of the UK Covid-19 variant was identified in the US, former Harvard professor William Haseltine has said that it's imperative to take "more serious measures" to control its spread.

Speaking on CNN's New Day program on Wednesday, Haseltine said that implementing a domestic travel ban that would include air, bus and train travel would be "highly controversial, but it's what we need to do."

"We know the virus is much more transmissible -- and we know we've got to take more serious measures to control what's inevitably going to be an increased rate of infection in our population," Haseltine said.

Germany expected to extend lockdown as daily deaths pass 1,000 for first time

German officials made clear on Wednesday that they won't be able to relax lockdown restrictions in early January as the country recorded more than 1,000 deaths in one day for the first time.

The figure is likely to have been swollen by delayed reporting but underlined the severity of the situation.

Germany, the European Union's most populous country, shut restaurants, bars, sports and leisure facilities on November 2. The partial shutdown halted a fast increase in new infections for a while but failed to bring them down, prompting authorities to impose a fuller lockdown from December 16, shutting non-essential shops and schools.

Those measures are due to run until January 10. Chancellor Angela Merkel and the governors of Germany's 16 states will consult Tuesday on how to proceed.

"We have to lament 1,129 deaths this morning alone – 1,129 families will be in mourning this new year," health minister Jens Spahn said at a news conference.

"These figures show how brutally this virus is still striking. But the numbers of deaths and infections also show that we are a very long way from the normality we would like," he added. "So in this situation, I don't see how we can return to the pre-lockdown mode."

UK faces ‘paralysis’ and tens of thousands of extra deaths if government refuses lockdown, COVID experts warn

The UK faces tens of thousands of extra deaths unless a national lockdown is implemented very soon, a former chief scientific adviser to the government has warned.

Sir David King, who chairs the non-government Independent Sage group, said the country was in the worst crisis in most people’s memories as coronavirus cases continue to surge.

The UK reported more than 53,000 new cases yesterday, its highest daily rise yet.

A delay in making tougher decisions would cause more COVID fatalities and cause economic damage, King said.

His comments came as health secretary Matt Hancock said he would not impose a “Tier 5” on Wednesday, although some parts of England would move into Tier 4, the current highest level of coronavirus restrictions.
2020-12-31 15:43:59
King told Good Morning Britain: “At this point in time we’re in the worst situation the country has ever faced in our memories.

“It is easily the worst of the whole outbreak.

“We believe that delayed and tentative decision-making will result in the deaths of tens of thousands more people.

“It will paralyse the country, it will wreck our economy. We must act quickly and we must act now and we’re calling for an immediate nationwide lockdown immediately.”
