Speaking at the start of a special meeting of the WHO Executive Board, Michael Ryan warned that the vast majority of the world remained at risk. At the same conference, the head of the agency, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, stressed that countries could still change their response to the virus. What we have learned in every region of the world is that with strong leadership, clear and comprehensive strategies, consistent communication, and engaged, empowered and enabled population, it's never too late. Again, it's never too late to change any kind of tide.

The police chief in Paris has confirmed the bars in the city were shut for two weeks to combat a surge in coronavirus cases. Hugh Schofield reports. The news from Paris is not good. COVID infections are up above 250 per a hundred thousand people, which means the cities hit a higher alert level and automatically new measures are going to kick in. The headline news is that bars and cafes are going to shut completely for two weeks from tomorrow. They were already having to close doors at ten o'clock, but that hasn't been enough to stop the virus spreading. There's some respite for the hard-hit hospitality trade, restaurants and bistro, which also expected to be told to shut, can stay open if they observe new rules. Hugh Schofield.
广东快乐十分An appeals court in London has overturned a judgment that the Venezuelan opposition leader, Juan Guaido, has controlled over a billion dollars of gold bullion held in the bank of England. The court struck down a verdict that the British government had recognized Mr. Guaido as interim leader. Here's Mike Sanders. This is the latest twist in the tussle over who runs Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro or Juan Guaido. Mr. Maduro won controversial elections in May 2018. Protests were brutally repressed. Mr. Guaido, the speaker of Parliament, declared himself interim president and appointed a rival board for the Venezuelan Central Bank to stop Mr. Maduro misusing the gold. Britain's former Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt called Mr. Maduro's regime clip to crack and recognized Mr. Guido as interim leader. But the appeals court has now ruled that the British recognition was not definitive. Our Europe regional editor Mike sanders reporting.
