Asian markets have extended previous day losses following another crisis in New York and Europe as governments impose new containment measures as they fight a second wave of viral infections, AFP reported.
After months of economic recovery, aided by improved levels of infection and mortality, there are fears that the coming winter in the northern hemisphere – which experts say could help spread the disease – will return to strict home rules.
Madrid has already locked up 850,000 residents, while under the new rules, which will take effect on Thursday, English pubs, bars and other hospitality establishments will have to close at 10pm, while food and beverage outlets will be limited to table setting.
While the nationwide blockade – which has devastated global economies this year – has not yet been imposed, the prospect of financial damage will scare investors.
London’s FTSE 100 and CAC 40 in Paris fell by more than three percent, while the Frankfurt DAX was charging by more than four percent.
Wall Street also collapsed, although all three major indexes managed to end their lows thanks to a bargain.
Sales continued in Asia, but losses were smaller.
Hong Kong fell 0.6% and Shanghai 0.5%, while Sydney fell 0.9%. Seoul, Manila and Jakarta fell by more than one percent.
Taipei and Singapore were also down.
Traders are becoming less and less optimistic. U.S. lawmakers will be able to devise a new bailout package for the troubled economy, with a Democratic-Republican antipathy fueled by Ginsberg’s death.
Eight monks tested positive for coronavirus and their monastery in a remote Orthodox Christian community in northern Greece has been quarantined, a church official said on Monday.
One of the monks was taken to a hospital in Thessaloniki in serious condition, said the official, who declined to be named. This is not the first outbreak at Mount Athos – four monks tested positive in March after traveling to Britain, but are recovering quickly.
Mount Athos, a 1,000-year-old site and one of the most revered sites of the Orthodox Church, has 20 monasteries and nearly 1,700 monks.
The community, known for its strict rules, is almost completely isolated in a mountain nature reserve in the region of Macedonia.
The country’s locking from March to May hit the church hard, destroying its Easter holidays. Church leaders have challenged some of the sciences behind the closure rules – agreeing to stop the masses but refusing to ban fellowship.
So far, Greece has registered 338 deaths and more than 15,000 virus infections.
The Czech prime minister says he was “carried away” by the opening too soon
Czech Prime Minister Andrei Babis admitted on Monday that his government had made a mistake in easing restrictions on coronavirus content over the summer.
Its mea culpa came as governments across Europe battled a second wave of Covid-19 infections after the holiday months, when the number of cases began to rise sharply.
“Even I was fascinated by the coming summer and the general mood. It was a mistake I don’t want to make again, “the populist billionaire said in a televised speech.
After repelling much of the pandemic earlier in the year with timely steps, including mandatory outdoor face masks, the government lifted most measures ahead of summer vacations.
The Czech Republic recorded a record 3,130 cases of coronavirus last Thursday, almost the same as for the whole of March, although testing capacity was low at the start of the pandemic.
Interior Minister Jan Hamacek said the country is now ranked second in the EU after Spain in terms of the daily growth of cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
“The situation is serious. Experts say that if we exceed 120,000 new infections a month, we will start depleting hospital beds. We will do everything possible to prevent this, “he said.
Health Minister Adam Voitech, a lawyer known for singing in the Czech version of the Idol series, announced his resignation earlier Monday.
He was immediately replaced by epidemiologist Roman Primula, who helped coordinate government measures to curb infections.

New Zealand has registered zero new cases of coronavirus
A breakthrough from the United States now, to a country whose response to the pandemic could not be more different.
From Charlotte Graham-Maclay:
New Zealand did not register new cases of Covid-19 on Tuesday, as restrictions on much of the country were lifted altogether and measures imposed on Auckland, the city’s largest city, were to ease further.
There are 61 active cases of coronavirus in New Zealand, 32 of which have been diagnosed as part of a community cluster in Auckland. The community outbreak sparked a second blockade of the city last month, which is now calming down.
There is no registered spread of the virus in the community in the rest of New Zealand, where the government has lifted all restrictions on physical distancing and overnight collection restrictions.
Another 29 cases of the virus are contained in managed isolation facilities for travelers returning to New Zealand.
The country has reported 1,464 cases of Covid-19 since the beginning of the pandemic with 25 deaths. Three people are currently in hospital.

The rally ended with the following words of Trump – I will have a summary soon:
“Together with the wonderful people of Swanton, Ohio, we will make America rich again. We will make America strong again. We will make America proud again. We will make America safe again. And we will make America great again. ”
Here, Trump is falsely claiming that the coronavirus affects “virtually no one” young. “Take off the young people’s hat,” he says. – By the way, open your schools. All open your schools. ”
