U.S. COVID-19 News: America Setting New Records Every day. Trump Deserves Badge Of Honor. 53,096 New Infections In Last 24 Hours
U.S. COVID-19 News
: America sets a new record in the last 24 hours with 53,069 (Thursday) new coronavirus infections in the last 24 hours. The country now has recorded a total of 2,837,189 COVID-19 Infections of which health authorities claim that 1,191,102 have ‘recovered.’ A total of 131,217 Americans have died from the COVID-19.
What is even scarier is that it is reported that more than 24,340 patients are in critical condition across the country, putting a heavy burden on the healthcare industry.
One of the reasons for America having such high figures is because everything concerning the COVID-19 has become politicalized and Americans have become so stupid to put politics before the health of themselves and their loved ones. (It is sad coming from Thailand where we thought its bad enough that majority here are intellectually challenged and only focus on online news concerning celebrities, female and male prostitutes online selling their wares or on gossip news. Kindly note that Thailand did fare well with regards to the COVID-19 not because of the initiatives of the authorities or the clueless healthcare professionals or the ineffective favirpiravir bought from China or the ‘Thai experts’ claimed protocol of using using Lopinavir-Ritonavir and Oseltamivir or that the locals were disciplined and practicing social distancing etc or the local health authorities calling Caucasians in the country various derogatory names or the private hospitals overcharging foreigners had anything to do with it. Rather the country was lucky as it only had the mild SARS-CoV-2 strain circulating around the population and not the more aggressive mutated European strains. Even then there will be lots of fun to watch in the next few months as those who experienced mild symptoms and had recovered or those who are asymptomatic start developing long-term health complications and also when the second wave comes around year end.)
Talking about long-tern health complications, with the US having almost 3 million infections now and the US CDC saying that the actual figures could be more than 10 times that amount, it is going to be staggering to see how the long-term health complications of these individuals are going to impact the healthcare industry in the US in coming months and years. Already so many emerging studies are showing of possible neurological and mental issues, endocrine and reproductive issues, heart and stroke issues, kidney issues and also the majority will also suffer chronic fatigue syndrome.
The third consecutive day of a record-high case count came as the United States the hardest-hit country in the world in the coronavirus pandemic headed into the long July Fourth holiday weekend.
The state of Florida is a key focus of public health experts worried about a surge in southern and western US states and it now has more than 169,000 cases. The US state of Florida posted a record 10,000 new coronavirus cases on Thursday alone.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis blamed the rise on "social interactions" among young people gathering at parties, beaches, bars, swimming pools and elsewhere, as well as a more "robust" testing program.
In the state of Texas, where more than 2,500 people have died, Governor Greg Abbott ordered people in counties with 20 or more cases to wear ma
sks, and banned gatherings of more than 10 people.
The new move came after the Lone Star State reported 8,000 new cases on Wednesday, the latest in a string of records that has alarmed health authorities, and led to the governor largely halting the reopening program that started in early May.
Florida and other so-called "Sun Belt" states have been forced to re-shut restaurants, bars and beaches as the nation braces for the July 4 weekend. These include California, which has seen a 56 percent increase in hospitalizations over two weeks, Governor Gavin Newsom said in a news conference.
However President Donald Trump, under fire for his handling of a crisis that has killed some 131,287 Americans, highlighted positive jobs data that showed 4.8 million people were back to work in June.
Trump said, "Today's announcement proves that our economy is roaring back. The crisis is being handled."
The US President's characteristically optimistic outlook came a day after Arizona population 7.3 million recorded more new cases and deaths than the entire European Union, which has 446 million citizens.
China’s World Health Organization warned on Wednesday that the pandemic was accelerating, with more than half of the world's infections over the past half year recorded in June alone.
And the past week has seen new highs with cases topping "160,000 on every single day," China owned WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said.
