A senior Iranian health official has said that there may be a resurgence of coronavirus in and around the capital of Tehran, as residents flout restrictions. More than 3,400 people have died and 55,000 cases of Covid-19 have been officially declared in the country amid speculation that the actual figures could be higher.

The coronavirus death toll in France has reached 7,560 since 1 March, the health ministry has said. This figure includes hospitals and nursing homes.

In Portugal the number of confirmed cases surged past the 10,000 mark, with the country’s health minister saying there was still “no light at the end of the tunnel.” Speaking to reporters, Marta Temido said: “This fight is not a 100 metre race, it is a long marathon.”
