Coronavirus live updates: Struggling restaurants brace for winter; WHO reports record one-day spike in cases

Health officials and epidemiologists will be watching U.S. infection trends closely this week for any early indications of a potential spike in cases brought on by the Labor Day holiday weekend. Steady economic reopening — including the resumption later this month of indoor dining in New York City, the original U.S. hot spot of the virus — could pose a greater transmission risk as colder autumn temperatures start to set in. 

Here are some of the biggest developments Monday: 

The following data was compiled by Johns Hopkins University:

  • Global cases: More than 29.13 million
  • Global deaths: At least 925,820
  • U.S. cases: More than 6.54 million
  • U.S. deaths: At least 194,367
