How to watch, start time, odds, team news

Watford – Southampton is the sole Premier League game on Sunday (start time, 11:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com) as the Hornets are in a relegation scrap and the Saints hope for a top 10 finish.

Watford’s relegation problems have been further hampered by Andre Gray, Nathaniel Chalobah, and Domingos Quina attending a reported 20-person party at Gray’s house. The club simply stated the players were omitted for “the health concerns” of players, staff, and officials.

Nigel Pearson’s side will see this as a very winnable game as they sit outside the relegation zone by just one point and have drawn with Leicester and lost at Burnley since the restart. Saints lost 2-0 against Arsenal last time out after Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side hammered Norwich in the first game of the restart.

The UK Government is closely watching the situation in Germany, where the reproduction rate of coronavirus has almost tripled in just a few days, with a minister saying this morning it was “concerning”. ​

Boris Johnson is expected to update his most senior Cabinet colleagues on the result of the two-metre rule as he prepares to reopen the UK’s hospitality and tourism sectors early next month. The Prime Minister is expected to finalise plans with his C-19 strategy committee, setting out how pubs, restaurants, cafes and hairdressers can reopen in some form from July 4

But James Brokenshire, the security minister, told BBC Breakfast the international experience and understanding of the virus had evolved in recent weeks and the decision would be informed by “the best, most up to date science” and

Coronavirus latest news: under 20s are half as susceptible to Covid-19, new study suggests

Young people under 20 are half as susceptible to Covid-19, a new study has suggested. 

The modelling study, developed by researchers at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, also found that clinical Covid-19 symptoms appeared in 21 per cent of infections among 10 to 19-year-olds, compared to 69 per cent of adults over 70.

Researchers say understanding the role of age in the transmission and disease severity of Covid-19 is crucial for determining the impact of social distancing interventions as well as accurately estimating the number of cases worldwide.

Rosalind Eggo and Nicholas Davies, from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, developed the age-based transmission model with data from 32 locations in six countries – China, Italy, Japan, Singapore, Canada and South Korea.

News from around our 50 states

Alabama

Montgomery: The capital is now the heart of the state’s pandemic crisis after a two-week surge in new coronavirus cases rocketed Montgomery County past Alabama’s larger counties. The city’s 2,791 COVID-19 cases are the most in the state, according to the Alabama Department of Public Health. More than 1,000 new cases have been confirmed over the past 14 days in Montgomery County, which at about 225,000 people is only the state’s fourth most populous. Fewer people have been tested in Montgomery County than Mobile County, the second hardest-hit, but the rate of positives is significantly higher around the capital. In a news release, the ADPH cited outbreaks at workplaces and long-term care facilities, although it noted that large gatherings during the Memorial Day holiday may have contributed to the surge. Montgomery Mayor Steven Reed had proposed making mask-wearing mandatory but withdrew the idea earlier this month when it failed

Coronavirus fake news causing patients to refuse hospital admission, medics tell MPs

Coronavirus Article Bar with counter

Coronavirus patients are refusing to be admitted to hospital because of fake news messages on WhatsApp saying doctors will kill them, frontline medics have warned MPs.

Dr Megan Emma Smith, a senior consultant anesthetist, said she was seeing patients arrive at hospital “unbelievably sick” because social media misinformation had frightened them into not coming or into trying quack remedies instead.

Appearing before the culture select committee on Thursday, a 111 operator also warned that misleading posts about Covid-19 had “eroded” public trust in the NHS and said he was having to convince callers that doctors and nurses were “on their side”.

The comments came as MPs investigated the impact of fake news during the pandemic and what measures social media giants are taking to suppress potentially deadly misinformation.

Dr Smith, based at the Royal Free Hopsital in London, said many virus patients she was
