More than 34,500 Americans are currently hospitalized with Covid-19 in the US, up from less than 30,000 a week ago. Nearly 700 new deaths are being reported on average every day, too — and while that is down from August, when there were often more than 1,000 deaths a day, deaths are going to eventually start increasing if cases and hospitalizations continue to rise. It’s a pattern we have seen before.

Covid - 19 has certainly been a serious disease, but the flu epidemics of 1957 and 1967 were just as bad, if not worse, with regard to total fatalities. The slow, but inexorable rise in deaths in the UK is being driven by the fact that anyone who has ever had a positive Covid - 19 test , who dies, is

Socceroos legend Harry Kewell has tested positive for COVID-19 and will sit out Oldham Athletic's next three games, the English fourth-tier club has confirmed.

Kewell returned a positive test on Tuesday after feeling "unwell" over the weekend and will self-isolate for the next 10 days, Oldham said in a statement.

The 42-year-old missed their 1-1 draw with Carlisle on Wednesday morning (AEDT), with assistant coach Alan Maybury taking the reins - but that did not stop Kewell from instructing his players and staff from afar, before and during the match.

Countries turn to rapid antigen tests to contain second wave of COVID-19

Testing for COVID - 19 involves inserting a 6-inch long swab (like a long Q-tip) into the cavity between the nose and mouth (nasopharyngeal swab) for 15 seconds and rotating it several times. The swabbing is then repeated on the other side of the nose to make sure enough material is collected.

"It's a little bit chaotic. The manager's in my ear with plenty of advice, everyone around the club has rallied together," Maybury said post-match.

"He spoke to some of the players today, he got in touch with them - just little bits of detail. Obviously we've chatted a lot over the last couple of days as we always do.

"It's not an easy couple of days but I said to the players what we had in the change room is what we've got at the moment so we stick together."

Oldham - a foundation club of the Premier League who have fallen on hard times in recent years - will face Port Vale and Southend before Kewell is due back from his isolation period.

The draw with Carlisle leaves the Latics in 19th spot on the League Two table, with just one win from Kewell's first seven games in charge.

It has been a difficult start to the season for Kewell, who is in his third senior managerial position after ill-fated stints at English lower-league clubs Crawley Town and Notts Country.

The former Leeds United and Liverpool sensation is Oldham's eighth coach since Moroccan owner Abdallah Lemsagam took over the club in January 2018.

Kewell brought former Adelaide United striker George Blackwood to the club when he took over but the 23-year-old Australian is yet to score in three appearances and did not feature against Carlisle.

Kewell's diagnosis comes amid a sharp increase of COVID-19 cases across the United Kingdom, which has scuppered plans to allow supporters to return to stadiums and could yet have a more pronounced impact on the sport at both club and international level, with many English teams at the bottom of the nation's football pyramid struggling to survive.

Meanwhile, Bayern Munich forward Serge Gnabry also tested positive for coronavirus on Tuesday, and more tests for his teammates were planned Wednesday morning before the defending champion's opening game of the Champions League.

The club said in a brief statement that the 25-year-old Gnabry is "doing well" and is in quarantine at home. He is Bayern's first player to test positive for COVID-19.

Gnabry trained earlier Tuesday with his teammates in the final training session for Atl??tico Madrid's visit in the Champions League on Wednesday.

It was unclear what effect Gnabry's positive result would have on the rest of the team. His teammates were to undergo more tests on Wednesday morning.

More positive results would not automatically lead to Wednesday's game being postponed. UEFA rules say games can go ahead as planned if a team has 13 available players, including at least one goalkeeper. But Bayern will be hoping that local authorities do not order the whole squad into quarantine.
