I’m going to be handing the blog over to my colleagues in Australia. Thank you all for joining me, on what has been at times a nail-biting few hours. A special thanks to all those who got in touch with tips and pointers, it’s always much appreciated.

I hope you’re all able to stay safe and well, wherever you are in the world.

Before I go, here’s a quick summary of some of the key developments over the past few hours:

  • New York’s daily death toll falls below 100 for first time since March, as Trump causes controversy with golfing trip.
  • India to organise special trains for migrant workers to get at least 3.6 million people who have been stranded in the cities, often walking hundreds of miles, home.
  • More than 40 infected a German religious gathering after reopening. Six were hospitalised after the service, which was was held on May 10, a few days after the reopening of places of worship in Germany.
  • Spanish death toll falls overtakes France for first time in 10 days. After confirming several hundred deaths on Friday, Spain’s death toll stood at 28,678 on Saturday, 346 more than France. This is the first time the Spanish toll has overtaken the French for ten days, giving Spain the world’s fourth-highest death toll after the United States, Britain and Italy.
  • Cyprus beaches reopen, but with social distancing measures in place and limits on water sports, as country records first day of zero new infections.

In the UK…

  • New witnesses say UK chief advisor broke lockdown twice. After a joint investigation by the Guardian and the Mirror found police had spoken to Boris Johnson’s chief aide Dominic Cummings after he made a journey of more than 200 miles from London to Durham during lockdown when he had coronavirus symptoms, new findings suggested he made at least two trips from London to Durham, and travelled to tourist hotspots in the north east of England.
  • Police contradict UK government claims over chief advisor. After Downing Street flatly denied that Cummings had any contact with police over his trip, Durham constabulary have confirmed that they did speak to Cummings over allegations that he broke the lockdown. This came as a serious blow to the UK government, who had said that “at no stage was [Cummings] or his family spoken to by the police about this matter”.
  • Calls mount for Cummings to be sacked. The reports have led to a chorus of calls for Cummings to be sacked, including from the leaders of the Liberal Democrats and SNP, while Labour called for an urgent investigation.
