We have to save lives now," Dr Tedros told a virtual briefing from the UN agency's headquarters in Geneva.Global infections stand at more than 14.5 million, according to Johns Hopkins University data, with more than 600,000 deaths. First human trial of Oxford COVID-19 vaccine shows promiseA COVID-19 vaccine developed by scientists at Oxford University is safe and has produced an immune response in early-stage clinical trials in healthy volunteers, preliminary results say.The vaccine, called AZD1222 and under development by AstraZeneca and scientists at Oxford, did not prompt any serious side effects and elicited antibody and T-cell immune responses, according to trial results published in The Lancet medical journal.Loading"We hope this means the immune system will remember the virus, so that our vaccine will protect people for an extended period," study lead author Andrew Pollard of the University of Oxford said."However, we need more research before we can confirm the vaccine effectively protects against SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) infection, and for how long any protection lasts."AstraZeneca has signed agreements with governments around the world to supply the vaccine should it prove effective and gain regulatory approval.The UK Government has already signed a deal to secure 100 million doses of the vaccine while the US has a contract for 300 million of the initial 1 billion doses produced.British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said the announcement was "very positive news", but also warned there are still further trials to take place.The company has said it will not seek to profit from the vaccine during the pandemic.The new trial included 1,077 healthy adults aged 18-55 years with no history of COVID-19.Cruise ships are travelling on the Danube River again The Danube River which runs through Budapest in Hungary, has cruise ships travelling on it again.(Reuters: Tamas Kaszas)River cruises are making a quiet comeback on the Danube River after the COVID-19 pandemic brought global tourism to a standstill.Holiday makers are adapting to strict new safety measures, with Germany's Nicko Cruises the first to restart Danube trips last month.The company is now operating three vessels for the six to eight-day trips from Passau in Austria to Budapest in Hungary."Normally, we have 90 per cent occupancy, this year we have around 70 per cent," cruise manager Alexander Steiner said. "There are no limits to how many guests you can have on board, so we are glad for every guest we have." Passengers must take a COVID-19 blood test before coming onboard, and wear masks when moving around. Tables are placed well apart with dividing screens, while waiters wear masks and gloves.Guests have their temperatures checked daily, and special safety rules apply for excursions.Portable testing kits trialled at Russian airportExpress COVID-19 testing is available for some passengers at Russia's busiest airport as part of a project aimed at allowing air travel and tourism to resume safely.Coronavirus questions answeredBreaking down the latest news and research to understand how the world is living through an epidemic, this is the ABC's Coronacast podcast.Read moreThe Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) and Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport said the diagnostic tests which give results in one hour would be available for all passengers on domestic flights at Terminal B from Monday.The portable testing system, which fits in two small suitcases, is already used at production sites by some Russian companies and was deployed at Russia's World War Two Victory Day military parade, held on June 24, the RDIF said."If you're at an airport and you need to be tested for three hours, this is not a workable solution," RDIF head Kirill Dmitriev told Reuters last week."We are doing a pilot in an airport in Japan and in Moscow, Sheremetyevo, and in an airport in the United Arab Emirates."European Parliament President says deal must meet certain conditionsThe European Parliament will withhold support for any deal struck by EU governments on the bloc's huge coronavirus stimulus package if it fails to meet certain conditions, its leader said on Monday.An EU summit spilled into its fourth day on Monday, as member countries wrangled over a proposed 1.8 trillion euro ($2.9 trillion) package for the European Union's next long-term budget and a coronavirus economic recovery fund.EU politicians want the package to include measures to defend the rule of law, which could freeze funding to countries flouting democratic principles. Hungary, backed by Poland, has threatened to veto the package if its disbursement was made dependent on such conditions.European Parliament President, David Sassoli, told EU leaders that even if they strike a deal the package will still need to win approval from the European Parliament."The European Parliament has set out its priorities and it expects them to be met," he said in a statement."If these conditions are not sufficiently met, the European Parliament will not give its consent."ABC/WiresWhat you need to know about coronavirus:The symptomsThe number of cases in AustraliaGlobal cases, deaths and testing rates
