Meanwhile the World Health Organization (WHO) has confirmed a new daily high in confirmed cases of coronavirus.This story will be regularly updated throughout Saturday and was last updated at 3:30am.Saturday's key moments:World Health Organization to probe into virus origin in ChinaGlobal cases soar to new highAustralia's first virus treatment Remdesivir approvedUS rapper Eminem attacks people who refuse to wear masksUK quarantine restrictions removed from dozens of countriesRemdesivir approved as Australia's first treatment Australia's first COVID-19 treatment option, Remdesivir, has been approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).The drug received provisional approval for use in adults with severe COVID-19 symptoms as a promising treatment option to reduce hospitalisation times.However it will not be available to everybody, and can only be used in adults and adolescents in hospital with severe infections. While the approval is a major milestone in Australia's struggle against the pandemic, it has not been shown to prevent coronavirus infection.Australia is the one of the first regulators to authorise the use of Remdesivir for treatment following recent approvals in the European Union, Japan, and Singapore.Gilead Sciences said data from a late-stage study showed it significantly improved clinical recovery and reduced the risk of death in COVID-19 patients.The company said it analysed data from 312 patients treated in a late-stage study and a separate real-world retrospective cohort of 818 patients with similar characteristics and disease severity as in the study.Findings from the analysis showed that 74.4 per cent of remdesivir-treated patients recovered by day 14 versus 59.0 per cent of patients receiving standard of care, the company said.The mortality rate for patients treated with Remdesivir in the analysis was 7.6 per cent at day 14, compared with 12.5 per cent among patients not on Remdesivir.Record daily rise in casesGlobal coronavirus cases have risen by 228,102 in 24 hours. The biggest increases were from the United States, Brazil, India and South Africa, according to a daily report from the World Health Organization (WHO).The previous WHO record for new cases was 212,326 on July 4. Deaths remained steady at about 5,000 a day.Global coronavirus cases exceeded 12 million on Wednesday marking another milestone in the spread of the disease that has killed more than 555,000 people in seven months.WHO to probe virus origin in ChinaAn advance team from the World Health Organization (WHO) has left for China to organise an investigation into the origins of the coronavirus.The virus is believed to have emerged in a wholesale market, which has since closed, in the central Chinese city of Wuhan late last year after jumping the species barrier from the animal kingdom to infect humans.Two WHO experts, specialists in animal health and epidemiology, will work with Chinese scientists to determine the scope and itinerary of the investigation, WHO spokeswoman Margaret Harris said, declining to name them."They have gone, they are in the air now, they are the advance party that is to work out the scope," she told a briefing.This would involve negotiations on issues including the composition of the fuller team, she added."One of the big issues that everybody is interested in, and of course that's why we're sending an animal health expert, is to look at whether or not it jumped from species to a human and what species it jumped from," Ms Harris said."We know it's very, very similar to the virus in the bat, but did it go through an intermediate species? This is a question we all need answered."Read more about coronavirus:These countries had widespread community transmission before a lockdownWe asked scientists what to do about the Victorian border.
