  • Hello and welcome to everyone watching worldwide.

  • My name is Carla Zeus.

  • We are covering a range of topics today from early us voting to a virtual tour of the Middle Eastern city.

  • But we're starting with the status of coronavirus both in America and abroad.

  • It's still out there.

  • It's still spreading.

  • But the number of cases and deaths blamed on the disease are different from nation to nation and community to community globally.

  • Johns Hopkins University has recorded 37.6 million positive coronavirus tests since the pandemic began.

  • The U.

  • S has seen more than 7.7 million globally.

  • Scientists have blamed more than one million deaths on coronavirus.

  • America has accounted for roughly 215,000 of those fatalities.

  • Overall.

  • Estimates that came out this summer indicate that Covad 19 is deadlier than the flu.

  • Roughly 1/10 of 1% of people who catch influenza are estimated to die from it.

  • Roughly 6/10 of 1% of people who catch coronavirus are estimated to die from it.

  • Over the past week, the number of coronavirus cases has increased in 31 U.

  • S states, the remaining 19 or either holding steady or seeing decreasing case numbers.

  • According to Johns Hopkins and worldwide.

  • It's a mixed bag as well, with very different approaches from nation to nation.

  • There are countries like Australia and New Zealand, which imposed strict lockdowns during coronavirus outbreaks and saw new case numbers come under control.

  • But there's also Sweden.

  • It made the controversial decision not to have the lockdowns of other countries.

  • But it's also seen a relatively low number of new cases in recent months, Though they have been increasing lately, numbers and several other parts of Europe appear to be on the rise.

  • I'm Nic Robertson in London, where the British prime minister is expected to announce a simplification of co vid regulations that tackle the growing number of infections across the country, has expected to announce a three tier system medium high on very high.

  • We know that the city of Liverpool is expected to be in the very high category.

  • They are expecting their bars, gyms and casinos to be shut down, but a lot of other details still to be worked out.

  • I'm Fred Pleitgen in Moscow as new coronavirus infections here in Russia remained at a very high level, Russian authorities recorded around 13,600 new infections in the span of 24 hours, and one of the main epicenters remains the capital here in Moscow, with about 4400 new infections in a single day.

  • The Russian authorities are urging people to abide by the anti pandemic measures, but also say if the high numbers persist, they might have to put additional measures in place.

  • I'm Scott McLain in Berlin, where nearly every large city in this country is now considered a coronavirus hotspots.

  • Stuttgart has even called in the military for help.

  • Berlin, though, is seeing the highest rates of infection this past weekend.

  • The health minister, though, is warning for the potential of uncontrolled spread of the virus, fueled by weddings and large religious gatherings.

  • Later today, German officials are expected to announce a new testing strategy and quarantine rules.

  • I'm Melissa Bell in Paris after a week of record rises here in France.

  • In terms of the number of new coronavirus cases, two extra cities on top of the four that entered the maximum alert category on Saturday will do so from tomorrow.

  • They join then Paris and Marseille, with all the fresh restrictions that that will bring.

  • And yet, for now, the national positivity rate continues to climb 11.5% this Monday.

  • That's up from just 4.3% on September 1st, and for the greater Paris region, it has now reached 17%.

  • Okay, 12th trivia.

  • Who is a candidate in the US election that saw the highest percentage of voter turnout, rather for behaves Abraham Lincoln, Franklin D.

  • Roosevelt or John F.

  • Kennedy?

  • So 50 to 60% of voters have turned out for modern elections.

  • 82% turned out for Hayes victory in 18 76.

  • Yeah, more than 128 million votes were cast in the 2016 U.

  • S.

  • Presidential election, and so far this year, more than nine million votes have been cast.

  • But Carl, you might be saying election days and until November 3rd right.

  • But 38 US states, plus the District of Columbia, allow early voting.

  • There's also been a surgeon mail in voting because of concerns about the coronavirus pandemic.

  • So, according to the U.

  • S Election Project, million's have voted and millions more will vote before October is over.

  • What's interesting?

  • According to one analyst is that the votes that have been cast are based on what the political environment is right now, how people currently feel about Republican incumbent President Donald Trump, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden or any other candidate they want to see in office.

  • So if those early voters change their minds before November 3, they can't change their votes.

  • Those have already been cast, except for Tuesdays.

  • The Louver Museum in Paris is open again from nine AM to six PM Visitor numbers are limited and they have to wear masks.

  • But for Americans, it's a moot point.

  • Most aren't allowed to travel from the U.

  • S to France right now.

  • In southern Asia, the Taj Mahal reopened to visitors last month.

  • Onley 5000 people are allowed to go there per day when it was 70,000 before the coronavirus pandemic hit.

  • But for Americans, it's a moot point.

  • The State Department says.

  • Don't travel to India even as tourist venues reopen.

  • There's a lot less travel going on in the world because of Cove in 19 but there is a way to see some venues in cities without leaving your living room is Kobe, 19 continues to confine us inside.

  • But how do these virtual tours compared to the real thing?

  • If you virtually walking yourself through a museum, of course, being their sights and sounds and smells of a place, we can't replicate that.

  • But if you wanted to see a specific UM, exhibit in the museum, whether you there, whether you're online, the information and the look and feel is exactly the same, he says.

  • Filming these experiences isn't all that difficult.

  • I imagine it's much more labor intensive than just getting your digital camera, uploading it online.

  • No and the process itself is not, too.

  • It is not too difficult, You know, 3 60 is not a complicated thing.

  • It's it's Anyone can go and buy 3 60 camera, and it's cheap.

  • But the challenge comes in the edit suite.

  • You take all those photos back, and now you have to stitch it into.

  • What you see is a panoramic photo, which is there are 3 60 photos that you can look around.

  • Then you need to stitch all of those panoramic together into a walk through an area.

  • Could take us a week to film but could take us six weeks to six together, do, by 3 60 launched long before coronavirus became a common term.

  • But like many virtual experiences, website hosts say that more visitors have been logging on during the pandemic than ever before.
