Live updates: Free school lunches extended amid coronavirus crisis as Wall Street reports best August in decades

Here are some significant developments:

  • The United States has logged more than 6 million coronavirus cases and 180,000 deaths.
  • One of President Trump’s top medical advisers wants the White House to embrace a controversial “herd immunity” strategy to combat the coronavirus pandemic. Reaching a 65 percent threshold for herd immunity in the United States may require 2.13 million deaths, according to an analysis by The Washington Post.
  • Even before the pandemic struck, local public health agencies had lost almost a quarter of their overall workforce since 2008 — leaving them unprepared for a moment of crisis.
  • India has surpassed Mexico to become the third-hardest-hit country in the world by total number of coronavirus deaths, surpassed only by the United States and Brazil.
  • France pushed forward with the reopening of schools on Tuesday, sending more than 12 million students back for mandatory in-person classes, even after the country reported a sharp rise in coronavirus cases.
  • Hong Kong officials began a drive Tuesday to mass-test residents, hoping for near-universal participation to flaunt the city’s civic sensibilities and patriotism. Few people showed up.
