China has reported a more than 50% drop in newly confirmed Covid-19 cases. Officials have reimposed dining restrictions and face covering requirements.

Health officials have warned that the country's reported 424,637 cases - making them sixth globally - is not an accurate account of the coronavirus situation, due to shortages of testing and underreporting of the virus.

Vietnam, up until this point a success story of the pandemic, is struggling to control an outbreak spreading in its most famous beach resort.

The first coronavirus case in Mexico was recorded on February 28 and the first fatality on March 19. More than 6.82 lakh people have died so far.

The debate over school openings came as Dr. Anthony Fauci dismissed a tweet by President Trump claiming the USA global lead in coronavirus cases is because of increased testing.

Obrador joined the list of leaders who have refused to wear a mask - including Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, who has tested positive for COVID-19 - and President Trump, though the USA president started publicly wearing a mask and encourage the use of masks in July. He has denied charges of hiding members and underreporting gatherings to avoid broader quarantines.

The pandemic has reached new highs throughout Latin America, with almost 2.7 million cases in Brazil alone.

The number of recoveries in the country also topped 2 million.

The novel coronavirus claimed 1,212 lives in Brazil and 688 in Mexico over the past 24 hours, according to health authorities on Saturday. But it will continue to allow several worldwide carriers from the United States, Europe and the Middle East to operate special flights to evacuate stranded nationals. Those who test positive as of Saturday must quarantine for 14 days.
