Treatment for diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular emergencies and hypertension have been partially or totally disrupted by the pandemic across many countries, the World Health Organization reports.

By the numbers: Over 6.3 million people have tested positive for COVID-19 worldwide and over 2.7 million have recovered from the virus. Over 378,000 people have died globally. The U.S. has reported the most cases in the world with over 1.8 million.

  • The U.K. eased more lockdown restrictions Monday despite warnings from some health officials, AP reports. The U.K. confirmed over 39,000 deaths from the virus — the most fatalities outside the U.S.
  • With over 520,000 infections, Brazil has the most cases outside of the U.S.

What's happening: The pandemic underscores why market regulators, companies and investors should do a better job planning for climate risks to the financial system.

  • Spain reported no new deaths in a 24-hour period from COVID-19 for the first time since March, an encouraging sign for a major hot spot in Europe, per the AP.
  • Hydroxchloroquine: The U.S. is sending 2 million doses of the anti-malarial drug and 1,000 ventilators to Brazil.
  • President Trump delayed the G7 conference from June to September amid concerns over international travel. Germany Chancellor Angela Merkel had originally declined Trump's invitation to the June summit over COVID-19.
  • India extended its nationwide lockdown again on Saturday, as the nation's deaths and infections continue to climb.
  • Greece is hoping its coronavirus success story will survive the tourism season.
  • Over 500 schools in South Korea — which has been a model for how to handle the coronavirus — have either closed or postponed reopening, according to the Korea Times, which cites data from the Ministry of Education.
  • Russian President Vladimir Putin said the country's annual military parade would take place on June 24, despite rising coronavirus cases.
  • Italy plans to reopen all airports beginning June 3 as restrictions on public transportation are eased, Transport Minister Paola De Micheli said during last week's parliamentary session. New cases in the country have largely plateaued in recent weeks, per Johns Hopkins.
  • Thailand restaurants have started reopening, the New York Times reports, with gyms and salons cleared to resume on June 1.
  • New Zealand has a single coronavirus case after reporting a week of no new infections, the Ministry of Health confirmed Friday.

The big picture: Policy responses to the crisis have been every-country-for-itself and — in the case of the U.S. and China — tinged with geopolitical rivalry. But the scientific work underway to understand the virus and develop a vaccine has been globalized on an unprecedented scale.

Coronavirus symptoms include: Fever, cough, shortness of breath, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headaches, sore throat and a loss of taste or smell.

Editors note: The graphic includes "probable deaths" that New York City began reporting on April 14. This article has been updated with new details throughout. Check back for the latest.

Protests against police brutality threaten coronavirus response

Protests against police brutality have prompted the closure of coronavirus test sites across the country, including in Pennsylvania, Florida, California and Illinois, Politico reports.

Why it matters: This adds to concerns that the protests themselves create an environment in which the virus can easily spread, particularly if and when protesters aren't wearing masks or social distancing.

Updates: George Floyd protests continue past curfews

Protests over the death of George Floyd and other police-related killings of black people continued Tuesday across the U.S. for the eighth consecutive day, prompting a federal response from the National Guard, Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection.

The latest: Even with early curfews in New York City and Washington, D.C., protesters are still out en masse. Large crowds took a knee at Arizona's state capitol nearly an hour before the statewide 8 p.m. curfew, and a peaceful march dispersed in Chicago ahead of the city's 9 p.m. curfew.
