With the novel coronavirus pandemic surging across the United States, and cases of COVID-19 spiking in Florida and several other states, the White House coronavirus response coordinator is recommending that those states pull back in their “re-opening” protocols.

Cases of COVID-19 have now exceeded 3 million in the United States, including some 130,000 dead.

Four states account for about 50 percent of new infections — Arizona, California, Florida and Texas — and have the most work to do.

“I want to finish with where the vice president started about the sacrifices of the American people because in that recommendations are very clear recommendations that when you have a county with these types of cases, we are recommending everyone using a face covering, and I think the studies now that have been done showing that cotton face coverings work, that does open up the ability for us all to have individualized face coverings that express our personality,” said Dr Deborah Birx. “But in addition, I think the work that these governors have done and asked the American people to stop going to bars, to close the bars, to move to outdoor dining, to decrease indoor, any kind of indoor gatherings again to all of the Americans out there that are in these four states and the states that have, and the report, we’re in the red zone because there’s a series of other states that we have in that zone, is really asking the American people in those counties and in those states to not only use the face coverings, not going to bars, not going to indoor dining, but really not gathering in homes either, and decreasing those gatherings back down to our phase one recommendation, which was 10 or less. So thank you.”
