  • Austria further reduced their excellent rate of increase, just 0.33%, more great news.
  • The rate of increase of death in Canada fell to just over 3%, our lowest since March 30, the continuation of a downward trend.
  • The US rate of increase fell again and is now under 2%, their lowest rate of change since this all began, 4th day of decline in a row.
  • Sweden also had another significant decrease yesterday with a rate of increase of just 0.37%!
  • This is easily the best overall day we've seen yet (internationally), and this is the 2nd day in a row I've been able to say that!
