US sets global record of 1m daily cases

The Guardian says More than 1 million people in the US were diagnosed with Covid-19 on Monday, setting a new global daily record.

A total of 1.06 million people across the US tested positive with the virus, a figure driven largely by the Omicron variant, data from Johns Hopkins University reveals.

Monday’s number is almost double the previous record of about 590,000 set just four days ago in the US, which itself was a doubling from the prior week.

The papers say it is now the last chance to escape the Taliban, with some describing the situation as a “failure” and slamming President Biden for seemingly backing Trump’s “America first” policy. 

Elsewhere, the papers carry front-page tributes to Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts – who has died at the age of 80.
