Dutch Woman Dies After Being Reinfected With COVID-19, Global Cases See Biggest Weekly Jump Yet: Live Updates

Speaking to a massive crowd in Florida last night, President Trump declared that he felt "powerful" and that he would "kiss" every person in the crowd if he could. Shortly before the start of Trump's performance, Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany posted a memo from President Trump's doctor, Dr. Sean Conley, telling the public that Trump had tested negative repeatedly over the course of several days.

Trump went ahead with his rally even as Dr. Anthony Fauci slammed the president for holding the rallies despite the chance of spreading COVID-19 (even after he repeatedly refused to weigh in on the potential impact of all those protests) and even accused the president and his campaign of "harassing me" by using clips that Dr. Fauci said were taken out of context.

But perhaps the biggest news on the COVID-19 front from overnight was Johnson & Johnson's decision to "pause" its 60,000 patient COVID-19 vaccine trial. JNJ's halt comes a little over a month after the AstraZeneca-Oxford trial was stopped by regulators after a patient was afflicted with a rare spinal condition. Although AZ's trials have resumed in India, the UK and elsewhere, regulators in the US are still enforcing a hold, and their reasoning isn't clear. Though JNJ insisted that it voluntarily halted the trial, we await more information from US regulators, who have been convened to investigate what went wrong. According to the STAT News report that broke the story, the trial was halted due to an "unspecified" illness.
