    UK up 134 cases, Scotland increases 24 new cases, don't know the breakdown of the rest.

    Situation across Europe is going downhill quite dramatically now, especially in Spain. Many countries ow with triple digit increases.

    Obviously not good but after seeing Scotland's figures first, I was actually expecting a lot worse.  Quite surprised actually.

    The Netherlands have banned events with more than 100 people. Urging people to work from home if possible.

    I feel the same. Especially seeing as the tests completed is gradually going up too. So I think it could of been a lot worse.

    So 5.9% tests are coming back positive (the highest to date).

    Yesterday (previous highest) was 4.2% positives.

    Trump said Monday that the “fake news media and their partner, the Democrat Party, is doing everything to inflame the coronavirus situation.”

    I mean, he's correct, but he needs to have that conversation with his boss.

    Wasn't the government supposed to be doing up to 15,000 tests a day ?

    I think they said 10,000, but there is probably a lag to get through first. Hopefully tomorrow we should be seeing an increase in testing rates.

    How many tests are France doing per day?

    Clearly a lot more than the UK at least initially unless our infection rate was several times worse than Wuhan .

    The NHS will increase testing up to 10,000 per day though it will take a bit of time to implement, and we have a 24-hour lag with updates
