(Bloomberg) --

An emergency committee of the World Health Organization said it expects the Covid-19 pandemic to be of “lengthy duration” and that it remains “a public health emergency of international concern,” the WHO said in a statement Saturday.

U.S. nationwide deaths exceeded 1,000 for a fifth consecutive day. Texas reported 9,539 daily new cases on Saturday, boosting the state’s total to 430,485 confirmed cases. Reported deaths slowed in Florida, where a hurricane threat is disrupting efforts to contain the pandemic.

China reported 49 new cases for Saturday, while Hong Kong added 125. Victoria, Australia’s second-most populous state, is set to tighten lockdown measures amid rising virus cases, local media reported, with an announcement expected as soon as Sunday morning.

Key Developments:

  • Global Tracker: Global Cases 17.8 Million; Deaths 682,931
  • Pandemic didn’t stop richest family from adding $25 billion
  • The virus is the summer house guest from hell
  • Up Against Fierce New Waves, Nations Turn to Sewage and Drones
  • Hurricane Isaias heads for Covid-stricken Florida coast
  • Japan acted like the virus had gone. Now it’s spreading everywhere
  • Those stuck-at-home investors who think they can beat the market
