For the second consecutive day, more than 60 thousand new cases of Coronavirus in the United States. According to data from Johns Hopkins University, there have been 63,643 infections in the last 24 hours, for a total of 3.1 million. The victims are growing at a reduced pace, now at 134 thousand. But it is precisely on the death front that American experts fear the imminent arrival of a new wave.

Fourth night of clashes in Belgrade, where the protest broke out after the decision of the President of Serbia Aleksandar Vucic to extend the restriction measures for the containment of the Coronavirus infections. An instrumental protest, according to Vucic, orchestrated by the opposition with “frustrated people, tied to tycoons and politicians unable to get yielded in the population”. But above all he warns the Serbian president they are “people who put their own health and that of thousands of other people at risk”. On the last night of protests, about 3 thousand people gathered in front of the Parliament building. A danger, according to Vucic, which could “provoke at least 40 thousand infections”.
