Florida on Tuesday reported a record number of one-day deaths from coronavirus, with cases in Texas exceeding 400,000, raising fears that the U.S. is still out of control of the outbreak, and putting even more pressure on Congress to deliver another package of mass economic aid.
Public health experts are concerned about the level of infections in states such as Ohio, Indiana, Tennessee and Kentucky, while a number of hospitals in Florida, along with Texas, Arizona and California, have risen this month.
The increase in the number of cases has led to a resumption of the economy after the end of March and April. Interrupted virus stops to slow the spread of the virus.
In Florida, 191 coronaviruses have died in the past 24 hours, the highest number in a single day since the epidemic began, the state health department said.
Texas, the second most populous state, reported more than 6,000 new cases on Monday, bringing the number to 401,477, Reuters reports. In just three other states – California, Florida and New York – there are more than 400,000 cases in total.
The expanded outbreak has forced the U.S. death from Covid-19 to approach a dismal 150,000 round the country is expected to overcome this week, coming just over three months before the November 3 election, where Donald Trump is running for a second term. According to data monitored by Reuters and Johns Hopkins University, more than 4.3 million Cases.
The proliferation of cases in Florida led to the cancellation last week of the Republican convention in Jacksonville in late August, which had already been rebuilt from North Carolina.
However, from Texas, where the state health department reported that current hospitalizations for Covid-19 fell on Monday, it looks hopeful.
Anthony Fauci, chief infectious disease expert and key public health figure for the White House coronavirus group, said there were indications that the recent wave could hit hard in hard-hit states like Florida and Texas. However, he warned that other parts of the country could be at the point of growing outbreaks.
“They can change and come back,” Fauci told ABC Goodbye America about the state of the outbreak in several southern states.
However, Fauci said there was a “very early sign” that the percentage of positive coronavirus tests began to rise in other states, such as Ohio, Indiana, Tennessee and Kentucky.
In the same television show, Fauci added that he did not mislead American society under any circumstances after the U.S. president staged another attack on him.
In New York, state governor Andrew Cuomo added the list of places in Illinois, Kentucky, Minnesota, Columbia, and Puerto Rico to a list of places travelers have to quarantine for 14 days while visiting New York. Another thirty-one states are on the list, which was made public last month.
New York was one of the early centers of the U.S. outbreak, first appearing in China late last year and now killing more than 654,000 people worldwide.
The rise in U.S. deaths and infections has overshadowed early hopes that the country has survived the worst of the economic crisis, which has destroyed business and fired millions of Americans.
Tuesday’s congress was closed to difficult negotiations on another coronavirus aid package to help American families and businesses recover from the crisis.
The House’s struggle in the republic’s camp and disagreements between the two sides, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, said she intended to meet with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Wednesday when the two sides “explain our differences”.
The previous pandemic congress required about $ 3 million. USD assistance, including increased unemployment benefits, to eliminate the pain of closure and closed businesses.
Senate Republicans announced Monday that a $ 1 billion coronavirus aid package had been drafted in conjunction with the White House, which McConnell described as a “tailored and targeted” plan to modernize schools and businesses while protecting businesses from litigation.
However, this proposal provoked direct opposition from Democrats and some Republicans. Democrats have acknowledged this to be insufficient, compared to their 3 million. USD proposal, which was adopted by the House in May.
New York’s mayor, Democrat Bill de Blasio, described the Republican proposal as “not starting” to reporters, saying he did not provide any support to the states and municipalities most affected by the epidemic.
The Republican proposal will reduce the current extended unemployment benefit from $ 600 a week, excluding state unemployment, to $ 200 a week.
The American Teachers’ Federation, meanwhile, has allowed it to be called a “safety strike” if needed to protect teachers from the coronavirus, as authorities are debating whether children and college students should return to personal learning at the end of the summer break.
Despite concerns about the spread of the virus in the classroom, some school districts in coronavirus zones and the federal government are seeking to reopen schools.
And Twitter has temporarily suspended the account of President Donald Trump Jr. for spreading false allegations about coronavirus. He shared a video in which a doctor falsely claimed that the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine was a “drug” for coronavirus. On Tuesday morning, Fauci stressed that this is not an effective disease.
