Miami, July 11 (RHC)-- The top U.S. infectious disease scientist, Dr. Anthony Fauci, said states with major outbreaks should “seriously look at shutting down” again. New statistics show COVID cases in Florida have increased more than tenfold since the state reopened in early May.
In Arizona, cases have soared by over 800% after reopening. Meanwhile, President Trump continues to downplay the severity of the crisis by saying the spike in confirmed cases is because “our TESTING is much bigger and better” than other countries.
Earlier, German Chancellor Angela Merkel appeared to indirectly criticize Trump’s handling of the pandemic. During a speech at the European Parliament, Merkel said: “The limits of populism and denial of basic truth are being laid bare.”
