(Bloomberg) -- Spain became the first country in Western Europe to surpass 1 million coronavirus infections, as authorities struggle to control fresh outbreaks and contemplate a curfew for the capital Madrid.Some 6,114 new cases were detected in the past 24 hours, bringing the total to 1,005,295, according to Health Ministry data published Wednesday. Russia has the most infections on the continent with more than 1.4 million, with France fast closing in on the 1 million mark and the U.K. next with more 760,000 cases, figures from Johns Hopkins University show.A curfew in Madrid would be the latest move by European governments to tighten restrictions amid an unrelenting spread of the disease. The capital was already hit with new restrictions this month when Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez declared a state of emergency for the Madrid region, which has a population of almost 7 million.Sanchez has come under fire for his handling of the pandemic, and the Socialist leader faces a confidence vote on Thursday brought by the far-right Vox party over his stewardship of the country.The motion is set to be comfortably defeated because Vox has failed to rally much support among other parties, but the event is putting the growing bitterness in Spanish politics on full public display. Sanchez has clashed repeatedly with the president of the Madrid region, who belongs to the main opposition conservative party, over the best way to deal with the virus.Earlier this year, Spain was briefly the European nation with the most daily deaths, but then imposed the continent’s strictest lockdown and brought contagion levels way down by June.When it was lifted in the summer, infections began to surge in what authorities mostly blame on a lack of adherence to hygiene and distancing rules in family and social gatherings.(Updates with chart, background)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
(Bloomberg) -- The U.K. and the European Union will resume talks over a post-Brexit trade deal, less than a week after Boris Johnson suspended the discussions, amid growing signs an accord is in sight.Negotiators will arrive in London on Thursday to begin intensive daily discussions, Britain’s chief negotiator, David Frost, tweeted. The aim is to reach an agreement by the middle of November, officials said.The announcement put the pound on course for its largest daily gain since March, while the yield on 10-year gilts rose five basis points to 0.24%.The diplomats are aiming to strike a deal within three weeks to leave time for it to be implemented before Britain’s departure from the EU’s single market and customs union on Dec. 31. Without an agreement, businesses and consumers will be hit with costs and disruption as tariffs and quotas are reimposed.While officials on both sides warn substantial differences still have to be overcome, they said there are signs of progress.In a joint set of principles governing the talks published on Wednesday, the U.K. and EU agreed to negotiate on all outstanding issues concurrently and to set up a “small joint secretariat” to work on a consolidated draft of the accord.Johnson’s MoveTogether, those changes remove a major bottleneck and mark a key breakthrough, something the British had been seeking for weeks. They are also a sign that both sides are starting to agree on common solutions.Johnson triggered the hiatus on Friday, frustrated at the EU’s unwillingness to work on a legal text, and what he said was its refusal to recognize Britain’s sovereignty, or accept that it would need to compromise.While EU officials described his decision to walk away as a theatrical gesture, they viewed it as a necessary step for Johnson to be able to sell a compromise to euro-skeptics at home.On Wednesday, the EU’s chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, moved to address Johnson’s complaints, telling lawmakers in Brussels the EU would acknowledge Britain’s sovereignty, change its negotiating approach, and begin work on the text. Later in the day, he and Frost held a call paving the way for the discussions to resume.“On the basis of that conversation we are ready to welcome the EU team to London,” Downing Street said in a statement. Even so, “it is clear that significant gaps remain between our positions in the most difficult areas, but we are ready, with the EU, to see if it is possible to bridge them in intensive talks.”The two biggest roadblocks remain the level competitive playing field and access to British fishing waters. On the former, the EU wants the U.K. to offer concessions, especially on its state aid policy. Johnson needs the EU to soften its demand for the same access to British fishing waters its boats enjoy today.“Hard work needed,” European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said in a tweet. “No time to lose.”For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

Months after vowing to process a backlog of 160,000 requests for loan forgiveness from students who say they were defrauded by their schools, the U.S. Education Department has rejected 94% of claims it has reviewed, according to a federal judge who is demanding justification for the “blistering pace” of denials. In a biting decision issued Monday in California, U.S. District Judge William Alsup said the department has been denying claims using template letters that are “alarmingly curt." Alsup threatened to suspend the agency from rejecting further requests, saying its approach “hangs borrowers out to dry.”

A U.S. judge on Wednesday will consider whether to excuse President Donald Trump from a defamation lawsuit by a writer who accused him of raping her in a Manhattan department store a quarter century ago and then falsely denying it happened. In an afternoon hearing, U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan is expected to weigh a request by E. Jean Carroll, a former Elle magazine columnist, to stop Attorney General William Barr's effort to intervene on Trump's behalf. The Department of Justice has argued that Trump acted in his official capacity when denying Carroll's claims because they were matters that interested the public or his constituents, and therefore could not be sued personally for defamation.
