COVID-19 Report 08/06/20 | As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, Priavo is producing weekly reports to keep our network informed.

As the world enters perhaps the most important phase of the COVID-19 emergency, it is struck by another crisis. The tragic death of George Floyd has shaken the world and prompted global protests and demonstrations to take place. Largely these demonstrations have remained peaceful, however, many have turned violent. Police forces around the world are battling to keep demonstrations peaceful whilst also trying to ensure social distancing laws are adhered to.

Our updates include key global developments, up-to-date COVID-19 statistics, and specifically, our focus this week has been The United States of America, and how the country is coping with both the repercussions of the George Floyd Protests and the fallout from the Coronavirus pandemic.
