US president says worship ‘essential’ and orders governors to act, Muslims worldwide prepare for Eid; blame game in Australia over jobkeeper scheme mistake

"To recap the latest news from around the world over the past few hours: Australia’s death toll has risen by one to 102 after the death of a man in a hospital in Victoria. Still in Australia, the opposition leader, Anthony Albanese, said the government’s massive multibillion-dollar jobkeeper mistake raises questions over how it will manage the economic recovery coming out of the pandemic. It follows the government admitting on Friday to a $60bn reporting error in the much-heralded subsidy scheme. Rather than costing the budget $130bn, that figure has been slashed to $70bn, and is forecast to assist 3.5m employees instead of 6.5m. The World Health Organization says South America is a new epicentre of the coronavirus pandemic, with Brazil and Chile recording more than 333,000 and 60,000 cases respectively. China recorded no new confirmed Covid-19 cases on the mainland for 22 May, the first time it had seen no daily rise since the pandemic began in the central city of Wuhan late last year."},{"@type":"BlogPosting","headline":"China reports no new cases for the first time in pandemic",
