Global Drive for Coronavirus Vaccine Raises $10.4 Billion

A global campaign to fund the development of vaccines and therapies against COVID-19 has so far raised $10.4bn, the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, said.

The WHO warned of the risks of an "immediate second peak" as countries ease up on lockdowns, urging governments in Europe and the US to step up surveillance, testing and tracking measures.

In the UK Public anger continues to simmer over Dominic Cummings, PM Boris Johnson's chief political adviser, who apparently flouted lockdown to drive from his London home to his parents' house in the north when he suspected he had coronavirus.

More than 5.5 million cases of coronavirus have been confirmed around the world, according to a tally by Johns Hopkins University. More than 346,000 people have died, while more than 2.2 million have recovered.
