The worldwide death toll crossed 700,000 as the two US social media giants took action against Trump for spreading what they called misinformation about the virus.

Several European countries and cities re-imposed tighter restrictions, including a wake-up week in Greece and new face mask and quarantine rules elsewhere.

The US tallied another 1,262 deaths and 53,158 cases Wednesday, marking 157,930 total deaths and more than 4.8 million cases — making it by far the worst-hit country in the world.
