more on our top story this hour. u.s. president donald trump staged a departure from walter reed medical center on monday. attempting to convert his covid-19 infection into a show of strength. he posed for a photo op on the white house balcony, removing his mask and telling his followers the virus was nothing to fear. this amid news his press secretary kayleigh mcenany also tested positive for the virus. she's the latest person known to have testing positive after attending the super spreader event at the rose garden. president trump says he learned a lot about covid-19 after being admitted to walter reed, now that he's discharged, he's back to down playing how serious the
deadly virus can be. take a listen. >> i just left walter reed medical center. and it's really something very special, the doctor, the nurses, the first responders, and i learned so much about coronavirus. one thing that's for certain, don't let it dominate you. don't be afraid of it. you're going to beat it. we have the best medical equipment. we have the best medicines. >> and what president trump fails to mention here is that not everyone has access to top health care like he does. more than 210,000 people have died in the u.s. from the coronavirus. kristen's father was one of them. she says he died because he trusted president trump's advice, and didn't wear a mask. here's more of what she told cnn. >> at this point, i think the president of the united states is the most dangerous person in
the world. he is continuing to spread misinformation about this virus, not only through his words, but through his actions. by taking off his mask and entering into the white house, he is signaling to his people and to his supporters that it is the strong person's will to go forward with the virus as is, and everybody will be fine, but that simply is putting people at risk for contracting this deadly disease, and it's appalling. >> and a lot of questions remain about when the white house knew president trump had contracted covid-19. and everyone including mr. trump's doctor is dodging those questions. >> doctor, what was the date of the president's last negative test. >> i'm not going to get into all the testing going back. but he and all the staff routinely are tested. >> can you answer the question
as to when the president's last n negative test was? >> as i said earlier, i'm not part of the white house medical unit. >> you said on tuesday, at the president's debate, and was he tested thursday morning. >> i'm not going to give you a detailed with time stamps, he tested regularly, and the first positive test he received was after his return from bedminster. >> was he tested wednesday night. >> not giving a detailed readout of his testing. safe to say his first positive test was upon return or at least after bedminster. >> and the man fielding most of the questions about the president's health has been his physician. dr. sean conley, he has become a household name in just a few days, holding regular briefings. as cnn's tom foreman reports, conley is becoming just as famous for what he doesn't say. >> when did the president last test negative for covid? >> i don't want to go backwards. >> how high was the president's
fever? >> i'd rather not give any specific numbers. >> any sign of pneumonia? >> i'm just not at liberty to discuss. >> was he ever getting supplemental oxygen? >> he's not on oxygen right now. >> yesterday and today he was not on oxygen. he's not on oxygen right now. >> from the start of the 74-year-old president's battle with covid, white house physician sean conley has been giving vague and oddly optimistic assessments considering trump was hospitalized, being pumped full of powerful drugs, including an experimental treatment, and when conley was caught misleading, turns out the president had gotten extra oxygen, his explanation? >> i was trying to reflect the upbeat attitude that the team, the president, that his course of illness has had. i don't want to give any information that might steer the course of illness in another direction. >> reporter: conley's file, he went to notre dame, studied ost
owe pat -- o and then into the navy, before rapidly rising to the top job in the white house, replacing dr. ronny jackson who once gushed about the president's incredible genes and excellent cardiac health. >> he has a lot of energy, a lot of energy and a lot of stamina. >> conley has told the trump line too, amid the questions about his health. he called his trip to walter reed part of a routine physical, a claim widely seen as suspicious considering the extremely unusual nature of the visit. rump said in may he consulted his doctor and started taking hydroxychloroquine, despite that doctors saying it did no good and could be dangerous. in a white house that prizes loyalty, conley appears to be just what the president ordered. >> the president has been a phenomenal patient during his
stay here. >> reporter: to be clear, conley might be a fine doctor but anytime he is asked any question that might see his medical expertise collide with the president's opinion, even if the public health is involved, the doctor dodges. tom foreman, cnn, washington. one in every ten people in the world may have contracted coronavirus since the pandemic began. that is according to the world health organization. the w.h.o. did not provide a specific number but 10% of the world's population would be about 770 million people. that number is more than 20 times higher than the official tally of 35 million cases by johns hopkins university. the w.h.o. and other experts say the real numbers are likely much higher than those confirmed cases with infection rates varying significantly by region.
>> southeast asia continues to see a surge in cases with europe and the eastern mediterranean regions showing an increase in cases and deaths. the situation in africa and the western pacific is currently rather more positive. our currently best estimates tell us that about 10% of the global population may have been infected by this virus. this various from urban to rural. it varies between different groups. but what it does mean is that the vast majority of the world remains at risk. >> to europe now, where the continent is struggling to get control over the second wave of the virus. only four european countries are measuring below a key threshold of new covid cases . in brussels, european commission president is self-isolating after she took part in a meeting with someone who later tested positive. the u.k. government has vowed to investigate how it failed to
report nearly 16,000 new coronavirus cases. and in the french capital, bars have now closed for two weeks. restaurants in paris can remain open, but they face a set of strict new rules. so let's bring in cnn's melissa bell. she joins us live from paris. good to see you, melissa. what are these new rules for restaurants there in paris? >> well, going to a restaurant is going to be slightly less than it was. you can't have a table of more than six, for instance. you will have to show that you have uploaded the authority's tracing app, and you're not going to be able to take your mask off before you get to the first course. those were the conditions so restaurants could stay open at all. ever since paris officially moved up into that maximum alert category from today, i mean, it had reached the criteria, things like icu occupancy, things like incident rates, both for the general population and for the
elderly, it had reached those criteria, putting it in the maximum alert category. from today, the fresh restrictions came in, and it was a price that restaurateur had to pay. they were simply very reluctant to see their establishments close once again, given the economic fragility of their recovery over the course of the last few weeks. but if you happen to be here in paris in a bar orca f cafe owne you will be seeing your establishment shut all together. a package of restrictions, ensuring that students can no longer have parties, lecture halls can only be attended by 50% of the students, to try and bring that second wave back under control. for the time being, the figures here in paris with not good, rosemary, and at a national level, that positivity rate reached another record level yesterday. 8.6%. that is up from 7.6% in just a week at the national level rosemary. >> incredible numbers there. melissa bell, many thanks,

and rocket attacks on civilians the deadly conflict enters the second week. the ren region is recognized as part of azerbaijan but an ethnic majority governs there. the u.s., russia, france and the head of nato are all calling for a cease fire. there are fears the violence could turn into a wider regional conflict, escalating tensions
between russia and nato and cnn niece nick paton walsh is following the conflict for us and reports on the spiraling crisis. >> reporter: it has gone so much further than many expected. neither diplomacy, nor exhaustion nor civilian casualties seem to slow the war between armenians and azerbaijan. over a week old, the video from the armenian side we can't verify, shows the impact in skyline over the ethnic armenian enclave within the borders of the fighting. civilians sheltered in a church crept when the siren sounds we go here, she says. we have been living in fright and fear for many years and this cannot be resolved in any way. azerbaijan said its large cities were hit by armenian shells. one of two attacks alleged over the weekend.
armenia denied it was them and the break away armenian republic said it would only target the military in azerbaijan cities. armenian images show these artillery active friday, but this is now so far from the few days of isolated clashes that's commonly blighted the past decade of this conflict. with azerbaijan parading what it said were abandoned armenian positions here, and claiming it has also captured some territory. a sign that well reserved operation is moving swiftly. the president demand armenia withdraw, and admit not part of armenia. azerbaijan has denied the sophisticated attacks, including drone strikes, brandished daily in defense ministry videos supported by turkey, despite ankara's throating backing for their campaign. france's president emmanuel
macron has claimed saying it was a red line. these videos growing in number which cnn has not independently verified appear to show syrians on the azerbaijan front line. the big question as fighting continues, what is russia's red line. power broker russia is a closer ally to armenia than azerbaijan, and putin pictured over the weekend with his security camera virtually meeting. would he tolerate turkey for his allies defeat. support for azerbaijan's military push was visible sunday in barku, and armenians here in the capital were rushing supplies to the corner. decades of amnesty, now aspiring war. nick paton walsh, cnn, london.

that's what happened but that was quite a rally that took place. that sentiment spun into europe today where we see some negative results but asia had a pretty good day with the gain of about a third of 1% to nearly 1% in hong kong. the european markets started higher and then retraced here because that halo effect is not lasting. after the rally, we're going to hear from the world trade organization. and have updates on the economic outlook. the star performer on monday was the oil market, up nearly 6%, and again, the international benchmark going above $41 a barrel. we have strikes in norway, 3,000 barrels a day, and a tropical storm off the gulf coast, called delta, which shutting in production in the united states as well. that's the real driver here, along with president trump going back to the white house. kind of a twist of fate, rosemary, and the valuations, once again, on wall street are very high in terms of prices. >> and john, u.s. stimulus bill
is still being debated, well after the deadline. is the market view that a deal is imminent here. >> yes, i think the market has been hoping for that, rosemary, you and i have talked about it for a better part of a month right now, thinking any day they will cross line and the deal will be done. there's quite a gap between the u.s. house democrats and the senate republicans. the latter don't want to spend as much as the house dr democra. let's do it bit by bit. here's the chief of staff to the white house, mark meadows. >> well, i do think that there is the potential for a deal, as long as politics do not get in the way again. even if a large comprehensive bill is not possible because of a few things that are out there, and there's still some major differences, let's go ahead and pass a number of the things that we can agree upon. >> and it's hard to get politics
out of the way, rosemary, right, with the presidential election on november 3rd, senators and congress people trying to go back to the polls and win their seats back. it is very political at this stage. >> just about everywhere, isn't it? thank you so much, john de appreciate it. searching coronavirus in parts of the u.s., will likely mean a surge in mail-in ballots with many voters choosing to avoid crowded polling stations. and with the president trying to undermine the credibility of voting by mail, concerns are growing about voter suppression, potentially on a massive scale. cnn political correspondent abby phillip has the latest. >> i'd rather just come in and drop it off. >> reporter: as millions of voters begin casting their ballots in person or by mail, the postal service acknowledging
in court documents there has been a significant drop in first class on time mail delivery. the usps saying it will increase staffing and make other changes to fix the problem. in battle ground michigan, voting is ramping up and so are the worries from voters. >> i want to personally make sure it got handed in. with all the talk of problems with the mail and that sort of thing, i wanted to be sure. >> reporter: in texas, governor greg abbott is facing two federal separate lawsuits after he issued an executive order restricting ballot drop boxes to one per county because he feels they will be more secure. opponents say this is no less than voter suppression. >> to make it so our voters who have dabtisabilities, elderly voters have to drive 50 miles in some cases to drop off their mail ballot, it's unfair. >> reporter: millions have hours left to vote for the 2020
election, including competitive states like arizona, florida, georgia and texas. already some 2.6 million general election ballots have been cast according to cnn, and edison researchers survey of election officials in 24 states reporting voting data, and in six of those states where party data is available, registered democrats make up more than half of the ballots returned. in pennsylvania, ongoing disputes over the changing ballot rules, poll watchers, new voting machines and the spread of disinformation are adding to the challenges some from the president himself. >> it had trump written on it, and it was run in a garbage can and this is what's going to happen. >> amid all of this, we are also learning about a new cyber security threat. in the last week, cnn has obtained an e-mail sent by the democratic national committee warning campaigns and organizations about e-mails sent by a hacking group intended to mimic official e-mail, but it includes a malicious attachment. these are the kinds of e-mails
that have election security officials concerned that hacking groups could try vulnerabilitie ahead of this election. abby phillips, cnn washington. >> i'm rosemary church, be sure to connect with me anytime on twitter.
