News:

Japan, which is now seeing a surge in cases, is scrambling to expand testing capabilities. I don't mean to sound like a Monday morning quarterback, but the country should've been preparing for a significant outbreak months ago. Nigeria's Chief of Staff to the President Abba Kyari has died from the virus. He is the highest profile figure to have died in the country, which has 493 cases and 17 deaths. Taiwan has quarantine 700 sailors after the Taiwanese Navy recently reported 3 cases of virus. The 700 sailors were on board a total of three ships that had recently returned from the island nation of Palau. These sailors are the first confirmed cases within the Taiwanese military.
