Affluent millennials and holidaymakers are driving the second wave of coronavirus, the latest data from the Office of National Statistics (ONS) suggests. The ONS investigated the characteristics and behaviours of those who tested positive for Covid-19 in England between July 23 and September 10. It found that cases were rising fastest in wealthy under-35s who had socially-distanced contact with at least six people in the previous week. While cases have remained largely static in the least deprived areas – with an infection rate of about 0.1 per cent – they have doubled in the wealthiest parts of regions. The rise in those areas has been largely driven by the under-35s, whose infection rate has more than quadrupled since the end of July (the graphic below illustrates coronavirus cases by age group).
Tighter restrictions ‘inevitable’, government source says
Romania's ruling centrist Liberals emerged as the leading party in a municipal ballot on Sunday, including in the capital, exit polls showed, bolstering their chances of forming the next government after a Dec. 6 parliamentary election. The ballot is a popularity test ahead of the national vote for the minority cabinet of Prime Minister Ludovic Orban, which has been fighting the spread of the new coronavirus since its first day in office, and imposed a strict lockdown. The opposition Social Democrats (PSD), lost power last year and have seen their popular support halve since a 2016 ballot and protests over attempts to politicise the judiciary.

Weekly use of a nasal spray could give 96 per cent protection from coronavirus, new research from Public Health England (PHE) shows. The new preventive treatment could move to human trials within months following successful results on ferrets. The spray was originally developed to boost natural human immunity to common colds and the flu, but has been retested to see if it would also work for coronavirus. It is produced by Australian biotech company Ena Respiratory and works by preventing the virus from replicating in the respiratory tract. "We've been amazed with just how effective our treatment has been," said Dr Christophe Demaison, managing director of Ena Respiratory. "By boosting the natural immune response of the ferrets with our treatment, we've seen a rapid eradication of the virus. If humans respond in a similar way, the benefits of treatment are two-fold. Individuals exposed to the virus would most likely rapidly eliminate it, with the treatment ensuring that the disease does not progress beyond mild symptoms. This is particularly relevant to vulnerable members of the community. "In addition, the rapidity of this response means that the infected individuals are unlikely to pass it on, meaning a swift halt to community transmission." The study was led by Prof Miles Carroll, PHE's deputy director, and is posted on the biomedical prepublication research site, medRxiv. The results show that by boosting the immune response, the spray dramatically decreased the chance of infection, even when the ferrets were deliberately infected with the virus. The company is seeking additional funding to accelerate the nasal spray's clinical development and global distribution. The drug's official name is INNA-051 and it is a synthetic small molecule which can be self-administered once or twice a week.

Get it out of the way," he continued, adding: "We have plenty of time."Barring a huge surprise, Republican senators, who have 53 out of 100 votes in the upper house of Congress, are expected to confirm Barrett.Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican, has already announced that a vote will be held "this year."st/bbk -------------------------------------------------------------
