On June 30, a record 50,000 people were diagnosed in a single day in the United States.
According to the New York Times, the number of confirmed cases has risen in nearly four-fifths of the 38 STATES where the outbreak has worsened.
In California, the nation’s most populous state, the number of diagnoses has soared 50 percent in the past two weeks, and the hospitalization rate has risen 43 percent.
Florida, Including California, and New York City have suspended the restart.
However, in an interview with Fox News on July 1, U.S. President Donald Trump said he still believes the virus will suddenly disappear.
“Our economy is experiencing a strong V-shaped recovery and I think we will be well on our way to novel Coronavirus.
At some point, it’s about to disappear.
I hope so.”
Faced with the moderator’s rhetorical questions, Trump continued to insist, adding, “The virus will go away, and the vaccine will come soon.”
Mr Trump had previously said the virus would magically disappear in April as the weather warmed up.
However, premature restarts and demonstrations across the United States have made the epidemic worse.
That same day, Former U.S. Food and Drug Administration commissioner David Guttrib said on a television show that the United States in a single day of real growth should be 10 times the current number.
“Fauci said it’s not surprising that we’re seeing 100,000 new cases a day. We’re actually seeing well over 100,000 new cases a day. We’re probably only detecting about a tenth of all cases.
“Not every infected person will have symptoms and become a confirmed case. Up to 200,000 to 300,000 people will have symptoms, but their symptoms are too mild to be tested.”
So far, there have been more than 2.68 million confirmed cases and more than 128,000 deaths in the United States.
