Coronavirus could be ‘under control’ in weeks if everybody wore masks, CDC director says – The Washington Post

14July 2020

July 15, 2020 at 9:41 PM EDT Average variety of new cases in the U.S. increases for 37th straight day The seven-day average of new cases in the United States increased for the 37th day in a row on Wednesday as state authorities, health specialists and organisations heightened pressure on people to wear masks outside their houses. The typical new-case total, 62,189, was up by almost 10,000 from

the exact same day recently, according to The Washington Post’s tracking. New Hampshire, Idaho, Montana, Oklahoma and New Mexico set records for single-day cases, while 19 states representing most areas of the country hit new average highs. In the past week, infections have

spread especially quickly in New Hampshire, the Virgin Islands and Montana, where the new-case average on Wednesday was at least two times the average of a week earlier. The figure was 348 percent higher in New Hampshire. Two counties have logged a streak of new-case-average highs longer than 2 weeks: Florida’s Broward County, which has actually set a record for 1 month directly, and Oklahoma’s Oklahoma County, which includes the state’s capital and has actually reached a brand-new high for 16 days in a row.

Although the nation’s seven-day average of deaths has actually stayed mainly steady for the previous couple of days, that average reached record highs in Alabama, Arizona, Florida and Texas.
