U.S. death toll surpasses 10,000; Boris Johnson moved to intensive care

The coronavirus death toll topped 10,000 across the U.S. on Monday as Americans entered a week President Trump said would be the “toughest” yet of the pandemic. The U.S. has more than 367,000 confirmed cases, according to Johns Hopkins University.  

Mr. Trump shared a rare call with former Vice President Joe Biden on Monday, in which the two discussed the federal response to the ongoing crisis. The pandemic has thrown off traditional campaigning, keeping the president at the White House and Biden at his home in Delaware. 

In London, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been placed in intensive care. The announcement came a day after Johnson was admitted to a London hospital with what his office called “persistent symptoms of coronavirus.”
