  • US COVID-19 Deaths Top 40,000

Coronavirus related deaths rose above 40,000 in the US on Sunday, according to the latest reports.

The total number of deaths hit 40,585 on Sunday with almost half of the number coming from New York.

The number of confirmed cases in the world’s largest economy rose to 764,265 while 71,012 patients have so far recovered.

However, despite the rising number of deaths, Americans have stated protesting for more relax restrictions on lockdown, especially in less affected states.

On Sunday, President Trump tweeted in support, saying “LIBERATE MINNESOTA!” the president exclaimed in one tweet. “LIBERATE MICHIGAN!” he said in another. “LIBERATE VIRGINIA! and save your great 2nd Amendment. It is under siege!” he wrote in a third.

“I don’t know any other way to characterize it,” Gov. Jay Inslee, D-Wash. said on ABC News, expressing disbelief at seeing the “president of the United States basically encourage insubordination” against laws that are “designed to protect people’s health.”

“It is dangerous because it can inspire people to ignore things that actually can save their lives,” Inslee said.

Buhari Has Recovered Over N800bn in Looted Funds

President Muhammadu Buhari government has recovered over N800 billion looted by corrupt Nigerians since the beginning of this administration in 2015.

Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture, disclosed this on Tuesday at a press conference held in Abuja.

He said, “This administration’s fight against corruption is as strong as ever, and we have the records to back up this claim.

“This administration has recorded over 1,400 convictions, including high profile ones, and recovered funds in excess of N800bn, not to talk of forfeiture of ill-gotten properties.”

President Muhammadu Buhari has made recovery of Nigeria’s stolen assets one of his priorities since he became president in 2015.

Several of Nigeria’s untouchables have been convicted despite political experts and social commentators saying the war against corruption should not be only against opposition but also against those in the ruling party that seems to have been overlooked.

Still, the ruling party has insisted that members of the party have been convicted and one of such is Kalu.
