Hard Numbers: Peruvian president's first 100 days, Ecuadorian migrants at US-Mexico border, no jab stay home in Austria, French hot-air balloon record
100: In a speech marking his first 100 days in office, Peru's leftwing president Pedro Castillo says he'll sell the presidential plane to fund healthcare and education. The Marxist-leaning former schoolteacher also wants to ban public officials from flying first class.
95,692: A record number of migrants has tried to cross the US-Mexico border so far in 2021, mostly Mexican nationals. The second largest group has come from Ecuador (95,692), where people are trying to flee a floundering economy.
35: Amid a spike in COVID infections, the Austrian government says it is just "days away" from requiring non-vaccinated residents to go into lockdown, saying vaccinated residents should not have to endure further restrictions. Austria has one of the lowest vaccination rates in Western Europe, with 35 percent of the population yet to be jabbed.
