Taiwan is the latest country to end mandatory COVID quarantines for people arriving from overseas beginning Oct. 13, the Associated Press reported. Officials said that the previous weeklong requirement will be replaced with a seven-day self-monitoring period. A rapid antigen test will still be required upon arrival, but those showing no symptoms will be allowed to take public transportation. In the U.S., known cases of COVID are continuing to ease and now stand at their lowest level since late April, although the true tally is likely higher given how many people are testing at home, where the data are not being collected. The daily average for new cases stood at 47,569 on Thursday, according to a New York Times tracker , down 26% from two weeks ago and now at the lowest level since late April. The daily average for hospitalizations was down 13% at 28,639, while the daily average for deaths is down 11% to 407. Globally, the confirmed case tally rose above 617.3 million on Thursday, according to data aggregated by Johns Hopkins, while the death toll is above 6.54 million with the U.S. leading the world with 96.3 million cases and 1,059,288 deaths.
