Coronavirus About 30 US states are seeing decreases in new Covid-19 cases, but Dr. Anthony Fauci warns things will probably get worse this fall and winter, and Americans should prepare to “hunker down.” That may mean eating out less: A new study from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention finds adults who tested positive for the coronavirus were about twice as likely to have reported dining at a restaurant in the days before becoming ill. The CDC has also updated its estimated death rate statistics. Overall, the death rate for Covid-19 is less than 1% for everyone but people over 70. But those proportions rise dramatically if people are hospitalized. The CDC also calculates that 40% of Covid-19 cases are asymptomatic, but remember, those people can still pass the virus on to others.

Election 2020Russian, Chinese and Iranian hackers have all tried their hand at compromising people and organizations involved in the 2020 US presidential election. This alarming news was announced by Microsoft, and top US cybersecurity officials were quick to confirm that no election systems have actually been thwarted. Microsoft says the same Russian entities partially responsible for 2016 attacks on the Democratic presidential campaign were also involved in recent attempts. Meanwhile, President Trump’s campaign is still trying to discount the safety of mail-in voting by grilling local elections officials in swing states on everything from vote counting to ballot storage to volunteer vetting.Joe Biden speaks about reaching blue collar votersJoe Biden speaks about reaching blue collar votersJoe Biden speaks about reaching blue collar votersJUST WATCHEDJoe Biden speaks about reaching blue collar votersReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

In Louisville, Kentucky, a grand jury was empaneled this week to investigate the March police shooting of Breonna Taylor. The state attorney general says a charging decision should come soon. New York’s attorney general will soon form a grand jury to probe Daniel Prude’s death in Rochester police custody. Prude died in March, and the release of police bodycam video last week led to the suspension of seven officers and allegations of a cover-up. Finally, in Kenosha, Wisconsin, the shooting of Jacob Blake is being investigated by state and federal officials. A state Justice Department report due September 22 will determine whether charges are appropriate.Hear Jacob Blake's message from his hospital bedHear Jacob Blake's message from his hospital bedHear Jacob Blake's message from his hospital bedJUST WATCHEDHear Jacob Blake’s message from his hospital bedReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

Several new fires have cropped up in California, stoked by strong winds. In Oregon, the small cities of Phoenix and Talent, home to about 11,000 people combined, have been largely reduced to ash. Overall, more than 100 fires are still active, and more than 4 million acres of land has been burned. A continent away, wildfires are still ravaging the Amazon rainforest in Brazil. Last month, 29,307 fires were recorded in the area, and scientists worry the rainforest may be approaching the point of no return.'It looks like the apocalypse:' See wildfire smoke turn San Francisco's sky orange'It looks like the apocalypse:' See wildfire smoke turn San Francisco's sky orangeThe skyline in the distance behind Crissy Field is barely visible with smoke from wildfires Wednesday, Sept. 9, 2020, in San Francisco.

GreeceFrance and Germany have joined forces to help migrants from the Greek island of Lesbos after Europe’s largest refugee camp burned to the ground this week. The Moria camp was home to an estimated 13,000 people, about six times its maximum capacity of 2,200 people. More than 400 of the camp’s residents were unaccompanied children. Now that these people have been displaced once again, French President Emmanuel Macron says he and the German government are trying to get as many European countries as possible involved in resettling them. The fire was allegedly started by people upset at recent coronavirus precautions enacted at the camp.
