Live updates: Wisconsin Supreme Court strikes down stay-at-home order; cities will keep restrictions in place – The Washington Post

Meanwhile, Federal Reserve Chair Jerome H. Powell issued a dire warning that the U.S. could suffer a painful multiyear recession if Congress and the White House do not authorize additional aid. U.S. markets tumbled on Powell’s comments.

Here are some significant developments:

  • Speaking at an ordinary volume can produce small respiratory droplets that stay in the air for at least eight minutes, possibly explaining why so many clusters are found at conferences and other confined spaces.
  • U.N. head António Guterres warned that the isolation brought by the pandemic has also unleashed a mental health crisis, urging countries to invest in their services to address it.
  • Britain has approved a long-sought antibody test from the Swiss firm Roche, calling it an “extremely reliable” way to see who has already had the virus.
  • Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has asked the state’s highest court to block voters from using coronavirus fears as a reason for obtaining an absentee ballot.
  • The Abbot rapid-response coronavirus test hailed by President Trump missed a third of the infections that were identified by a rival company, according to a preliminary New York University study.
  • At least 16 states have reported cases of children contracting a severe inflammatory illness that could be linked to the coronavirus.
