Issue presents challenge for administration buoyed by positive marks on handling of Covid-19
The number of Americans who have died as a result of COVID-19 could surpass the fatalities caused by the 1918-19 Spanish flu outbreak, according to a count by Johns Hopkins University. "We hope it will be like getting a cold, but there's no guarantee," said Emory University biologist Rustom Antia, who suggests an optimistic scenario in which this could happen over a few years. There may be a further increase in the winter but not as deadly as last year, according to projections by the University of Washington.

"A long-awaited step for separated families & friends, and good news for business," the 27-nation bloc's executive Commission said on Twitter, referring to a U.S. decision to also ease the rules for travellers from China and India. The U.S. curbs were first imposed on travellers from China in January 2020 by then-President Donald Trump and extended to other countries in the following months, without any clear metrics for how and when to lift them. EU governments agreed at the end of August to remove the United States from the EU's safe travel list because of a rise in COVID-19 cases, meaning U.S. visitors are likely to face tighter controls, such as COVID-19 tests and quarantines.

Addressing supporters in Sidi Bouzid, the crucible of Tunisia's 2011 revolution that brought democracy and triggered the "Arab spring", Saied also spoke against what he called strife and sedition days after the first protest against him. Saied dismissed the prime minister, suspended parliament and assumed all governing powers on July 25 but he has yet to name a new premier or declare a roadmap for the future, raising concerns over his intentions.
