The federal government is preparing for a potential second wave of novel coronavirus infections to accelerate across the country in the fall months, according to the White House coronavirus response coordinator.

That’s as much of the United States is emerging from months of “lockdown” conditions even as COVID-19 cases continue across the country, regularly killing thousands of Americans.

In the United States, nearly 1.7 million cases of COVID-19 have been reported, including nearly 100,000 dead, according to the most recent figures.
