New COVID-19 Outbreak Registered in Southeastern China
China has registered 20 new COVID-19 cases, all of them in the southeastern Fujian province, the National Health Commission said on Sunday.

"20 indigenous cases in Fujian, 19 in Putian and 1 in Quanzhou, including 1 confirmed case converting from an asymptomatic case," the statement reads.

Until recently, China was able to stem the spread of the infections across the country. For a long time, most confirmed cases were the ones brought to the country by travellers from abroad. But a mid-July outbreak in the city of Nanjing spread to several other cities.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, mainland China has registered 95,199 COVID-19 cases and 4,636 deaths caused by the disease.

Australia Secures Additional 1Mln Moderna Vaccine Doses From Europe
Australia's Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced on Sunday that his country would receive an additional 1 million Moderna vaccine doses from the European Union.

"I can confirm today that the Federal Government has secured an additional 1 million Moderna doses from the European Union member states," Morrison said, speaking live from Kirribilli House in Sydney.

The prime minister's speech was broadcast by ABC News Australia.

The doses are due to arrive next week. They will come on the heels of the country's Technical Advisory Group on Immunization's recommendation for the use of the Moderna vaccine for everyone over 12 years of age.

These Moderna doses come in addition to the 4 million Pfizer doses the country secured in a swap deal with the United Kingdom. From mid-September the country is planning to commence vaccinating teenagers aged 12-15.

So far, 8.42 million Australians are fully vaccinated which amounts to 33.2% of the entire population.
