Non-essential shops had been ordered to close from Tuesday, schools that had only just reopened would have to close Thursday, and 330,000 citizens had been told by Hancock to remain indoors as much as possible because of the continuing high number of coronavirus cases.

The easing of lockdowns across England had been signaled to begin from July 4, but strict controls in Leicester will stay and be reviewed in two weeks, said Hancock.

The country had not seen such a limited daily death figure since Feb. 24 -- in the very first phase of the pandemic at national level -- when it had registered 5 fatalities within a total of 219 cases assessed.

With Monday's daily increase, the country's death toll reached 34,744.

Germany's North Rhine-Westphalia state on Monday extended a coronavirus lockdown on a district of Gutersloh which was hit hard by an outbreak at a slaughterhouse.

Guetersloh would remain on lockdown until July 7 "as a precaution", while its neighboring district of Warendorf be able to exit lockdown as planned on Tuesday.

Serbia decided on Monday to impose stricter preventive measures in the capital of Belgrade, after an alarming increase in the number of newly confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the previous weeks.

From Tuesday, all people in Belgrade would be obliged to wear facial masks in indoor spaces as well as on public transport, while for the rest of Serbia it will remain a recommendation, the crisis response team decided.

In recent days several officials were confirmed with COVID-19, including one government minister, as well as lots of sportsmen and public figures.

In the past 24 hours, Serbia marked 242 new cases of COVID-19 out of 7,150 tested people and four new deaths, bringing the total number of active cases to 1,433, and the total death toll to 274.

Emergency was declared on Thursday in the southwest Serbian city of Novi Pazar which marked more than 200 new cases since the state of emergency was lifted. Two days later, on June 27, an emergency was declared in the city of Kragujevac.

Serbia lifted the nationwide state of emergency on May 6, after reaching a low ratio of infected among tested.

Russia had confirmed 6,719 new COVID-19 cases in the past 24 hours, raising its total number of infections to 641,156, its coronavirus response center said in a statement on Monday.

The death toll grew by 93 to 9,166, while 403,430 people had so far recovered, including 4,343 over the last 24 hours, according to the statement.

Moscow, the country's worst-hit region, reported 782 new cases in the past day, taking its tally of infections to 220,853.

As of Sunday, 297,181 people were still under medical observation, while more than 19.3 million COVID-19 lab tests had been conducted nationwide, Russia's consumer rights and human well-being watchdog said Monday.

The Japanese government on Monday said it will not yet declare another state of emergency despite a recent spike in daily COVID-19 cases in Tokyo and an uptick in infections nationwide.

Japan's top government spokesperson Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told a press briefing that the recent spike in cases, particularly in Tokyo, did not necessitate the government issuing a new state of emergency over the virus outbreak at this juncture.

Suga's remarks followed concerns that business closures may be requested again by prefectural governments and restrictions on people's travels across prefectural borders, just recently lifted, may be reimposed.

His remarks were also with regard to the Tokyo metropolitan government on Sunday reporting the highest daily infection tally since the state of emergency was lifted on May 25, at 60 new cases in the capital of 14 million people.

Suga said Monday that the rise in cases in the capital was due to intensive testing of those known to have come into close contact with people already testing positive for COVID-19, as opposed to new infections with no known traceable infection route.

With Japan seeing a daily average of around 100 new infections recently, Suga said the government had no plans as yet to clamp down on the freedom of movement of people and request the public to once again refrain from making unnecessary trips across prefectural borders.

The Thai government's Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) on Monday said short-stay business travelers and guests of the Thailand government from Chinese mainland, China's Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea and Singapore will be allowed to enter from July 1.

This special arrangement will initially allow entry to 200 inbound travelers per day, confirmed CCSA spokesman Dr. Taweesin Visanuyothin on Monday.

He said the number of inbound travelers will increase as more alternative state quarantine (ASQ) rooms are made available, and the special arrangement will allow entry to groups of no more than 10 people for a short period.

Taweesin said that inbound travelers will be tested for COVID-19 prior to travel and on arrival in Thailand.
