French Polynesia has recorded another 67 Covid-19 cases in the past 24 hours, raising its total to 1,020.

Of those cases, 958 have been detected since August, when the government and the French High Commission re-opened borders and abolished quarantine restrictions for tourists.

On 9 August, there were just 69 infections. Since that date – five weeks ago – the number of confirmed cases has increased exponentially, up nearly 1500%.

Still in the UK, tens of thousands of pubs, bars, nightclubs and gig venues will not survive increased coronavirus-prevention measures, such as local lockdowns and evening curfews, unless they receive fresh state support, the UK government has been warned.

One in four of the 115,000 licensed premises in Britain still had not reopened by the end of August after restrictions were imposed to contain Covid-19, according to data from the analysis firm CGA and AlixPartners.
