  • Yeah.

  • Thank you for taking 10 for CNN.

  • 10.

  • I'm Carla Zeus from our remote studio outside the CNN Center.

  • In fact, the reason why we're here is the subject of today's first report.

  • The threat of coronavirus continues.

  • Toe lurk around the world.

  • On Monday, the World Health Organization said the disease might have infected 10% of the global population.

  • It's a controversial statement.

  • It would mean that 770 million people on the planet had contracted the disease.

  • Researchers at Johns Hopkins University have tallied 35 million infections worldwide.

  • But the United Nations says that's probably an enormous under count, and one ongoing challenges diagnosing coronaviruses that an estimated 40% of people who catch it have no symptoms, so many may never know if they've had it or get tested for it.

  • Kobe, 19 is not spread evenly around the world.

  • We have reported on how there were fewer cases and deaths on the continent of Africa than researchers had expected.

  • And while some countries like New Zealand, are lifting restrictions after saying coronavirus is under control, others air shutting down businesses and locking things down again because case numbers are going in the wrong direction.

  • France reported almost 17,000 positive tests on Saturday.

  • That was a new one day record there, and officials were considering putting Paris on lock down.

  • Germany and Italy recently recorded their biggest one day spikes in positive tests since April, and the United Kingdom in Poland are also seeing their numbers increase.

  • It's creating major challenges for world leaders.

  • They're trying to find ways to keep people from spreading cove in 19 while also allowing them to have some sense of normalcy.

  • Lockdowns can also be damaging to local and national economies.

  • In the United States, U.

  • S President Donald Trump left the hospital yesterday.

  • He returned to the White House after being treated for coronavirus at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

  • On the other side of the country, California has seen the highest number of coronavirus cases.

  • More than 834,000 have been recorded there.

  • But New York has had the most deaths blamed on the disease, and certain parts of New York City are facing lockdowns once again.

  • After months of steps forward in this city's battle against the pandemic, a sign on Sunday that there could be a very big step back.

  • The mayor, proposing nine ZIP codes in Brooklyn and Queens, returned to the kinds of lockdowns that we saw back in April.

  • Schools closed, non essential businesses closed.

  • The idea is to try to combat a rising infection rate in those neighborhoods.

  • Seven consecutive days of a 3% infection rate or higher now and in 11 other ZIP codes.

  • New lockdowns involving public gathering places like gyms and pools, and a closing down of indoor dining, which just recently reopened.

  • Here, the mayor said, There's been a lot to celebrate in New York for the past few months, but Sunday was not one of those days.

  • So today, unfortunately, is not a day for celebration.

  • Today is a more difficult day, and I'm going to be giving an update that gives me no joy at all.

  • In fact, it pains me to be putting forward this approach that will need.

  • But in some parts of our city in Brooklyn and Queens were having an extraordinary problems, something we haven't seen since the spring.

  • All these proposals have to go through the governor's office, and CNN reached out to the governor.

  • We haven't heard back yet exactly what he plans to do with the mayor's proposals.

  • But we did hear that.

  • He pointed to previous statements where he said if a city can't control its outbreak, the state will step in.

  • Yesterday was the first Monday in October.

  • You're like, Thanks, Karl.

  • Well, that's significant, because it's when the U.

  • S Supreme Court officially begins a new session.

  • And the fact that it has a vacancy following the death of Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg doesn't stop the court from hearing arguments or making decisions.

  • One case on the docket.

  • This session concerns the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obama Care, a major health reform law passed in 2010.

  • Another case involves laws against discrimination and the issue of religious freedom.

  • Also, if a legal dispute comes up related to the U.

  • S presidential election on November 3rd, the court could be called on to resolve that to like it did in the election of the year 2000.

  • There is a complication for the court at the moment.

  • It currently has eight justices until the vacancy is filled.

  • That means that rulings that end in a tie are possible if four justices decide a case one way and for decide the other.

  • If that happens, whatever decision was made by a lower court before the case was appealed to the Supreme Court would stand.

  • So when will the vacancy be filled?

  • That is the question Judge Amy Coney.

  • Barrett is President Trump's nominee to fill the seat, and her confirmation hearings were scheduled to begin next week.

  • Though those two have been complicated, several senators have caught coronavirus and may have to attend the hearings.

  • Virtually.

  • Democrats in the chamber want the hearings to be postponed.

  • The Republicans who lead the Senate are hoping to move quickly and hold a vote on Judge Barrett's confirmation by the end of the month.

  • But if she is confirmed, then it doesn't necessarily mean she'd be the tie breaking vote on any split decision.

  • In order for a justice to rule on a Supreme Court case, he or she has to be confirmed and sitting on the bench when the case itself arrives.

  • So if the court takes up a challenge before the new justices seated, it'll be up to the other eight justices to decide it.

  • 12th trivia, who was a recipient of the first Nobel Peace Prize or where you do know Theodore Roosevelt, Clara Barton or Woodrow Wilson.

  • One of the two people who received the 1901 prize was already do Knoll, and this year's winners are announced this week.

  • Ah, well known award is for peace, but there are also Nobel prizes for economics, physics, literature, chemistry and medicine.

  • Hundreds of awards have been given over the last century there, handed out on December 10th on the anniversary of Alfred Nobel's death.

  • Though the winners are announced before then, there could be as many as three winners per category, and some people have one more than one Nobel prize.

  • Marie Curie, for instance, the first woman to win, took home awards for chemistry and physics.

  • The International Committee of the Red Cross won the Nobel Peace Prize three times in 1917 1944 and 1963.

  • And it's not just a medal that these people are organizations win a diploma and a cash prize.
