The United Kingdom saw its number of confirmed coronavirus cases double over the weekend after four more people were diagnosed with the pneumonia-like illness. To date, there are eight cases of the novel virus in the country.

“The new cases are all known contacts of a previously confirmed UK case, and the virus was passed on in France,” Professor Chris Whitty, the Department of Health’s chief medical officer for England, said in a statement on Monday.

TEXAS SHERIFF SAYS INMATE’S CORONAVIRUS CLAIMS ARE ‘PRETTY UNREALISTIC’ 

The new cases are linked to a British man who contracted the virus while in Singapore on business. He then traveled to a ski resort in France, exposing others to the illness. He is currently being treated at St. Thomas’ Hospital in London, the BBC reported. 

“The patients have been transferred to specialist NHS [centers] at Guy’s and St Thomas’ and The Royal Free hospitals, and we are now using robust infection control measures to prevent further spread of the virus. The NHS is extremely well prepared to manage these cases and treat them, and we are working quickly to identify any further contacts these patients have had,” Whitty added.

9 FAMILY MEMBERS INFECTED WITH CORONAVIRUS AFTER SHARING HOT POT MEAL

U.K. government officials also on Monday declared the coronavirus outbreak a “serious and imminent threat to public health.”

“In light of the recent public health emergency from the novel Coronavirus originating from Wuhan, Secretary of State has made regulations to ensure that the public are protected as far as possible from the transmission of the virus,” the government said in a statement, adding Arrowe Park Hospital in Merseyside, and Kents Hill Park in Milton Keynes, are “isolation facilities.”

Swedish woman swept out to sea by wave in Hawaii, Coast Guard suspends search

Authorities in Hawaii suspended the search late Sunday for a 20-year-old woman from Sweden who was swept into the ocean by a wave over the weekend.

The U.S. Coast Guard 14th District said in a news release the active search for Hanna Wänerskog was suspended at 11 p.m., and that the Honolulu Fire Department is taking the lead in an attempt to locate and recover the 20-year-old.

“This incident is tragic and unfortunate,” Lt. Cmdr. Brock Blaisdell of Coast Guard Sector Honolulu said in a statement. “The decision to suspend an active search is always a difficult one.”

OREGON FLOODING LEADS TO DOZENS OF RESCUES, BODY OF WOMAN ‘SWEPT AWAY BY RUSHING WATER’ DISCOVERED

Wänerskog was last seen at Waimea Bay on the north shore of the island of O’ahu around 6:30 p.m. treading water. Fire officials told KHON2 they received a swimmer in distress call shortly before 7 p.m., and the Coast Guard was called in to assist by 7:30 p.m.

A surveillance camera captured the moment that Wänerskog was standing on the beach with two other people when all three were overcome by a wave and swept out.

“She was at the beach here, close to the rocks, in about ankle-deep water when a swell came in and knocked her and her friends over, unfortunately, she was swept out,” Sr. Chief Petty Officer Jason Bryant of the U.S. Coast Guard told KHON2. “She was last seen attempting to swim back in but then a wave overcame her and that was the time she was last seen.”

At the time she was swept out to sea, Wänerskog was fully clothed, wearing black shorts and a black skirt.

FLASH FLOOD, ‘EXCESSIVE RAINFALL’ RISK ACROSS SOUTH DUE TO WIDESPREAD RAIN THROUGH MIDWEEK, FORECASTERS SAY

Since Friday, Coast Guard helicopters, fixed-wing aircraft, and cutters along with helicopters from the U.S Navy conducted 40 searches encompassing over 485 square miles in an attempt to locate Wänerskog.

The Honolulu Fire Department, Honolulu Police Department, and Ocean Safety also utilized helicopters, jets skis and ground teams in the three-day search for Wänerskog before efforts were suspended late Sunday. Searchers had difficulty over the weekend with high surf and strong winds out of the north.

“It is a decision based on survivability factors and time always works against us,” Blaisdell said in a statement. “Our deepest condolences go out to the Wänerskog family and Hanna’s friends. “

Wänerskog was reportedly at the beach area with friends she met during the first weeks of a three-month internship with a nonprofit called Surfing the Nations. Logan Jacobs, a leadership team member with the organization, told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser she came to Hawaii to serve “the youth at risk and homeless.”

Nazi flag seen hanging in classroom window at Maryland public high school

A Maryland public high school launched an investigation Monday after photos of a Nazi flag hanging in a classroom window went viral over the weekend.

ARIZONA CEO FIRED AFTER VIRAL VIDEO SHOWS HIM ALLEGEDLY USING RACIAL SLUR AGAINST UBER DRIVER

Several people visiting Governor Thomas Johnson High School in Frederick, located in central Maryland about 50 miles from both Baltimore and Washington D.C., said they saw the flag in the classroom window while on campus for a school basketball game Friday night. Photos of the flag then began to circulate on social media.

Facebook user Nicole Hopkins originally posted the photo of the flag in the classroom window. Her post was then shared by another user, according to Frederick News Post, which then received nearly 400 shares and more than 700 comments as of Monday.

“I just want to know what class at Governor Thomas Johnson High School has this hanging in the window,” Hopkins initially wrote, sharing the photo of the Nazi flag in the window.

“Edit: Yes. I’m aware this is probably a history class. Yes I know the significance behind teaching it.. my issue is it being in a window for the whole world to see. There’s several other flags hanging in the class that could swap places with this IF it needed to be on display,” she later added in an update.

Frederick County Board of Education President Brad Young told WFMD that he was emailed an image of the flag around 8 p.m. Friday night and ordered the flag it taken down.

The Nazi flag seen in the photo was used in a World War II history class and left hanging in the window, visible to the outside, Frederick County Public Schools superintendent Theresa R. Alban said in a statement obtained by news outlets. She added that officials will “take appropriate action” on Monday to figure out what led up to the flag being hung there.

“The flag was removed as soon as our administrators were made aware. An apology was sent to the community,” Alban told WTTG-TV. “This does not reflect the values of our school system.”

Principal Daniel Lippy said in an email to the school community that the administration has taken steps “to ensure that this never occurs again,” according to The Associated Press.

The school was conducting an internal investigation into the incident. Young said it was too early to determine whether the teacher who hung the flag would receive any disciplinary action for what he described as “poor judgment” in leaving the flag on display. He added that teachers are encouraged to use “hands-on” methods to engage students in the classroom, including dressing in costumes, WFMD reported.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Rebecca Luker, TV Actor And Multiple Tony Nominee, Says She Has ALS

Three-time Tony nominee Rebecca Luker, who appeared on the CBS legal drama “Bull” earlier this month, revealed Sunday that she has ALS. 

Luker, 58, said she has known for a while. “We fight and go forward,” she wrote on Twitter.

Luker, who’s married to “Moulin Rouge” Broadway actor Danny Burstein, received a slew of well wishes from the entertainment community.

Actor Ben Stiller lauded Luker for her bravery in sharing her situation. He retweeted Luker’s plea for fans to support a promising treatment called Prosetin.

Stage veteran Betty Buckley, known in part for the TV prison drama “Oz” in the early 2000s, called Luker an inspiration for her voice and presence. Anthony Rapp of Broadway’s “Rent” and TV’s “Star Trek: Discovery” wished her well.

Luker, from Alabama, has received Tony nominations for “Mary Poppins,” “Show Boat” and “The Music Man.”

In 2018 and 2019 she had a recurring role on “NCIS: New Orleans” and played a nun on multiple episodes of “Boardwalk Empire” in 2012, IMDB noted.

According to her website, she lives in New York City with Burstein and two stepsons. 

ALS, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, is also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease and is a neurological disorder that leads to paralysis.

NYC cops ‘declaring war’ on Mayor de Blasio, union says, following ‘assassination attempts’ on officers

A police union says the men and women of New York City’s finest are now “declaring war” on Mayor Bill de Blasio following a pair of shootings targeting officers in the Bronx over the weekend.

The fiery rhetoric directed at the Big Apple’s Democrat leader — who has implemented several measures critics say are hostile to police – comes as the NYPD filed charges against suspect Robert Williams in both attacks.

“Mayor De Blasio, the members of the NYPD are declaring war on you!” the Sergeants Benevolent Association wrote in a tweet. “We do not respect you, DO NOT visit us in hospitals. You sold the NYPD to the vile creatures, the 1% who hate cops but vote for you.

“NYPD cops have been assassinated because of you,” the tweet added. “This isn’t over, Game on!”

BRONX ATTACKS ON NYPD LIKELY TO FURTHER INFLAME TENSIONS BETWEEN COPS, DE BLASIO’S CITY HALL

Police say Williams first ambushed two officers from the 41st Precinct on Saturday night, who had been sitting in a marked patrol van. One officer was wounded as a result of that attack when a bullet grazed his chin and neck.

Williams then walked into the precinct’s station house the next morning and opened fire with a 9mm handgun, injuring a lieutenant, police added. Only after running out of bullets did the 45-year-old Bronx native lay down on the ground and surrender.

The two officers wounded in the attacks are expected to survive – while Williams has been charged with attempted murder, criminal possession of a weapon and resisting arrest.

De Blasio’s office ripped Sergeants Benevolent Association President Ed Mullins on Monday, telling Fox News that his “comments are absolutely reprehensible.

“He clearly has forgotten his oath to protect and serve,” spokesperson Freddi Goldstein said. “While he threatens violence, the mayor remains focused on the safety of our officers and communities.”

De Blasio himself, in a series of tweets Sunday, hailed the “heroism and extraordinary skill” of the NYPD’s officers for de-escalating the situation.

“This vicious assassination attempt is the second one we’ve seen in 24 hours — and an attack on our NYPD officers is an attack on ALL New Yorkers,” he said. “This despicable hatred is an attempt to divide our city and undermine our safety. We cannot and will not let that happen.”

GUNMAN WHO TARGETED NYPD OFFICERS HAS VIOLENT PAST, POLICE SAY

The charges filed against Williams add to his already lengthy rap sheet, which the NYPD tells Fox News includes prior arrests dating back to 1994 for crimes such as robbery and criminal trespass.

Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said Sunday that Williams also had been paroled in 2017 after an attempted murder conviction in 2002.

In that incident, Williams shot a 23-year-old man several times in the back and leg before carjacking a 30-year-old woman’s vehicle, the NYPD tells Fox News. His bid to escape came to an end when he crashed the car and traded gunfire with New York City police officers, Shea noted.

Police say Williams first ambushed two officers from the 41st Precinct on Saturday night, who had been sitting in a marked patrol van.

Since his parole more than two years ago, Williams has one recorded arrest – a 2018 case of resisting arrest — for which he was already scheduled to appear in court, the commissioner added.

“It is a double miracle that we are not preparing for two funerals right now,” New York City Police Benevolent Association President Patrick Lynch said in a statement following the weekend shootings. “These targeted attacks are exactly what we have warned against, again and again. The hatred and violence directed at cops continues to grow.”

SECOND NYC POLICE OFFICER SHOT INSIDE PRECINCT FOLLOWING ‘AMBUSH’ ATTACK, INVESTIGATORS SAY

The motive for the recent shootings is unclear, but Shea on Sunday criticized criminal justice reform activists who have demonstrated in recent months against excessive force by police, including a large protest in Grand Central Terminal. The protests, he suggested, helped create an anti-police environment.

“These things are not unrelated. We had people marching through the streets of New York City recently,” Shea said. “Words matter. And words affect people’s behavior.”

Yet, Shea didn’t offer any evidence that Williams knew of those protests or was influenced by them.

De Blasio, who won office partly on a promise to reform policing of minority communities, also suggested that anti-police sentiment had gotten out of hand.

“Anyone who spews hatred at our officers is aiding and abetting this kind of atmosphere; it is not acceptable,” he said. “You could protest for whatever you believe in, but you cannot vilely attack those who are here to protect us. It creates this kind of dynamic.”

The weekend attacks recalled other unprovoked assaults on New York City police officers sitting in their patrol vehicles.

In 2017, a gunman killed Officer Miosotis Familia as she sat in her patrol vehicle in the Bronx. In 2014, two officers, Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, were shot dead in their patrol car in Brooklyn by a man upset about recent police killings of unarmed black men.

The killings of Ramos and Liu had also followed large protests. Some officers blamed de Blasio for expressing solidarity with the demonstrations and turned their backs on the Democrat at the funerals.

GM recalling nearly 130,000 pickups to fix brake glitch

General Motors is issuing a recall for certain Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 light-duty trucks because a software update may cause the failure of their electronic brake assist system.

The trucks were previously recalled for another brake issue, but nearly 130,000 of them in the U.S. received buggy software that may disable the brake assist when the vehicles are started remotely using their mobile app. The issue can also arise when a driver enters the vehicle and waits longer than five minutes to start it. Both scenarios are accompanied by the illumination of the “Service Brake Assist,” “Service ESC,” and “Brake System Failure” dashboard warning lights.

GM said it knows of no accidents or injuries that have resulted from the problem, but a Detroit Free Press investigation revealed several owners had close calls when their trucks unexpectedly lost the power assist.

NHTSA’s report on the issue says it is only initiated when the vehicle is stationary. A GM spokesman told Consumer Reports that owners are advised not to drive their vehicles if the warning lights illuminate until they have received the new update.
