Up to 90 per cent of nurses and doctors who caught coronavirus during the height of the pandemic picked it up in hospitals, research suggests. Modelling by Public Health England (PHE) also suggests one in five patients who got the virus became infected on wards. Scientists have called for a war to be waged on Covid-19 transmission within hospitals, in the same way the NHS has previously successfully battled superbugs such as MRSA. They warned that a lack of physical distancing between staff – not just on wards, but also in canteens, offices, and corridors – could be fuelling the spread of the virus. A report by the Royal Society's Data Evaluation and Learning for Viral Epidemics (Delve) group, which provides advice to the Government’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage), examined a number of studies. Among them is modelling by PHE, dated May 20, which suggests that "approximately 20 per cent of infections in inpatients, and 89 per cent of infections in healthcare workers, were due to nosocomial [hospital-acquired] transmission".
The man accused of driving a Jaguar on to a closed Seattle freeway and hitting two protesters, killing one, is scheduled to appear in court on Monday for a discussion on whether he can be released on bail.

Senator Tammy Duckworth (D., Ill.) said that “we should listen to the argument for removing George Washington statues” in an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union Sunday. Statues of slave-owning historical figures such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson have become the latest target of the nationwide racial reckoning sparked by the death of George Floyd in police custody this summer.When asked by CNN’s Dana Bash if she supported taking down monuments of leaders who were slave owners, as she has expressed support of changing military bases named after Confederate leaders, Duckworth instead initially took aim at President Trump’s Mount Rushmore speech on Friday.The senator, who the Washington Post reported Sunday is a serious contender in Joe Biden’s search for a running mate in the 2020 presidential election, called Trump’s priorities “all wrong.”“He should be talking about what we're going to do to overcome this pandemic,” she said. “What are we going to do to push Russia back? Instead, he had no time for that. He spent all his time talking about dead traitors.”After further pressing by CNN’s Bash, Duckworth said she thinks we should have a national dialogue over the historical monuments at some point and “listen to everybody.”“I think we should listen to the argument there, but remember that the president at Mount Rushmore was standing on ground that was stolen from Native Americans who had actually been given that land during a treaty,” she said.Trump has defended such monuments, and did so again in his speech Friday, saying, “By tearing down Washington and Jefferson, these radicals would tear down the very heritage for which men gave their lives to win the Civil War, they would erase the memory that inspired those soldiers to go to their deaths,” he said. “They would tear down the principles that propelled the abolition of slavery and ultimately around the world ending an evil institution that had plagued humanity for thousands and thousands of years.”
