Coronavirus live news: China records first local death in eight months as New York pleads for more Covid vaccine

The 10-member team sent to Wuhan by the World Health Organization was approved by President Xi Jinping’s government after months of diplomatic wrangling that prompted an unusual public complaint by the head of the WHO.

Scientists suspect the virus that has killed 1.9 million people since late 2019 jumped to humans from bats or other animals, most likely in China’s southwest. The ruling Communist Party, stung by complaints it allowed the disease to spread, says the virus came from abroad, possibly on imported seafood, but scientists reject that.The @WHO team will receive both throat swabs and antibody tests at #Wuhan airport, and will be quarantined for 14 days in accordance with regulations. https://t.co/NzQybIKuyo 4.13am GMT The Hebei death comes as China readies for the arrival of an expert team of scientists from the World Health Organization, who will start a politically sensitive investigation into the origins of the Covid-19 pandemic.The 10-strong team is expected to arrive shortly in Wuhan, the central Chinese city where the virus was first detected in late 2019.

House poised to charge Trump with inciting insurrection and call for impeachment



Effort gains momentum as senior House Republicans join Democrats in calling for Trump’s removal from office for role in Capitol attackThe US House of Representatives was poised on Wednesday officially to charge Donald Trump with inciting an insurrection against the US government in the wake of the attack on the US Capitol on 6 January by a pro-Trump mob, an extraordinary and historic measure that would make him the only American president ever to be impeached twice.The unprecedented effort gained momentum overnight as senior Republican leaders in the House joined Democrats in calling for his removal from office for his role in inflaming a horde of loyalists who led the deadly assault on the US Capitol while members of Congress in both the House and Senate were in session to certify Joe Biden’s victory over Trump in November’s presidential election.

Coronavirus live news: Chinese vaccine 50% effective in Brazil; US CDC expands pre-flight Covid testing



Coronavac less effective than previously thought; US coronavirus testing requirements expanded to most international air travellers; Tunisia announces four-day coronavirus lockdown Negative Covid test required to enter England from FridayGermany and Netherlands likely to extend lockdowns‘Countless horrors’: LA hospital at centre of Covid crisisWHO mission to Wuhan: ‘it’s not about finding China guilty’See all our coronavirus coverage 1.01am GMT In the UK, people who were trapped in poverty before the pandemic have suffered the most financial damage during the crisis, according to a report warning the government that more support is needed to help hard-pressed families.The Joseph Rowntree Foundation said those who had been struggling to make ends meet before March last year were more likely to work in precarious jobs or sectors of the economy that had been hardest hit by lockdowns. Related: Lowest paid in UK have suffered the most financially in the pandemic, report finds 12.33am GMT Anyone flying to the US will soon need to show proof of a negative test for Covid-19, health officials announced Tuesday.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention requirement expands on a similar one announced late last month for passengers coming from the United Kingdom. The new order takes effect in two weeks, AP reports.

Covid is already widespread in the US, with more than 22 million cases reported to date, including more than 375,000 deaths. The new measures are designed to try to prevent travelers from bringing in newer forms of the virus that scientists say can spread more easily.

The CDC order applies to US citizens as well as foreign travellers. The agency said it delayed the effective date until 26 January to give airlines and travellers time to comply.

International travel to the US has already been decimated by pandemic restrictions put in place last March that banned most foreigners from Europe and other areas. Travel by foreigners to the US and by Americans to international destinations in December was down 76% compared to a year earlier, according to trade group Airlines for America.

The new restrictions require air passengers to get a Covid-19 test within three days of their flight to the US, and to provide written proof of the test result to the airline.

Travellers can also provide documentation that they had the infection in the past and recovered.

Airlines are ordered to stop passengers from boarding if they don’t have proof of a negative test.

“Testing does not eliminate all risk,” CDC Director Robert R. Redfield said in a statement. “But when combined with a period of staying at home and everyday precautions like wearing masks and social distancing, it can make travel safer, healthier, and more responsible by reducing spread on planes, in airports, and at destinations.”

The CDC order is “a reasonable approach” to reducing the risk of new variants from abroad entering the US, said Dr. Ashish Jha, dean of Brown University’s school of public health. Continue reading…

Australia live news: Queensland orders hundreds to restart quarantine over fears of UK Covid variant



Annastacia Palaszczuk calls for hotel quarantine rethink after cluster discovered; NSW records one new community case. Follow all the latest news and information, liveState by state restrictions explained
Covid hotspots Victoria; NSW hotspots; Queensland hotspotsNSW and Sydney trend map: where cases are rising or fallingFollow the global coronavirus live blog 12.22am GMT So while the Mount Druitt Hospital case has been genomically linked to the Berala cluster, we still don’t know exactly how that man is linked to the other infected people. Chant was asked if this means there might be undetected infected people still out in the community. If we cannot readily link a case with a direct crossover with an infectious case it means we are potentially missing chains of transmission. That is why at the moment we are doing a lot of what we call “upstream”, contact tracing and that’s looking at what could have infected this person. That gives us other lines of inquiry where we might find a crossover to that person to other cases of known contacts. Overnight, we’ve also had a detection at the West Hornsby Treatment Plant and this catchment takes in Glen Nori, Pen innocent Hills, castle Hill, Hornsby and Norman Hurst and West Pennant Hills. We are aware of some cases in that catchment but as a precaution we again draw this to the attention of the community and ask you to again reflect on if you have the most minimal of symptoms, please just get a test as we go through this very critical response. 12.16am GMT Berejiklian says she expects the UK variant of Covid-19 to become dominant in Australia’s (rather sparse) cases. I just think we need to assume that these variant strains are going to become the dominant strain and whilst we have outstanding quarantine systems in Australia throughout most of the states, we can’t be assured that that strain won’t seep out into the community. That’s why I strongly welcome the pause that we’ll be taking in the number of people we’re welcoming back home from the next month. So from January 15 to February 15, New South Wales will be halving the number of people that come down. Continue reading…
