SUMMARY

Confirmed COVID-19 cases have exceeded 30.7 million globally, with over 956,000 fatalities and more than 21 million recoveries, according to the latest tally from Johns Hopkins University. 

Here is what we know:

As of Saturday, the Chinese mainland had recorded 85,279 cases, with 382 asymptomatic patients under medical observation. The death toll in China stands at 4,744, including 103 fatalities from the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and seven from the Taiwan region.

The Chinese mainland recorded 10 new cases on Saturday, all from overseas. It is the 35th consecutive day the Chinese mainland has reported no new domestically transmitted cases.

The U.S. has registered more than 6.7 million infections and over 199,000 deaths – both the highest in the world. The CDC's ensemble forecast projected there will be up to 218,000 coronavirus deaths in the U.S. by October 10.

UK PM Boris Johnson on Friday warned that a second wave of COVID-19 is "coming in" in Britain and the government may need to "intensify things to help bring the rate of infections down."
