Coronavirus-Related Deaths in US Pass 150000

Florida governor Ron De Santis has seen his approval ratings plummet since May when he boasted that the virus was contained

And most testing supplies were being conserved for human use anyway.

Here is how the news is developing today.

Florida tallied on Thursday a new record high in daily confirmed COVID-19 deaths for the third straight day as the state faces pressure to outline new measures to combat the pandemic.

Florida also reported 9,007 new cases, bringing its total infections to over 470,000, the second highest in the country behind California.

USA coronavirus deaths rose by nearly 25,000 in July and cases doubled in at least 18 states during the month, according to a Reuters tally, dealing a crushing blow to hopes of quickly reopening the economy.

A Trump loyalist, DeSantis has refused to require mask-wearing in public, although some mayors have done so in their jurisdictions. "To that end, I'm asking all Floridians to join me in this important effort".

Trump has since come around to supporting masks but has still not imposed a national mandate requiring them.

In Australia, there were 723 positive tests in the southeastern state of Victoria alone, well beyond the previous nationwide record of 549 cases set on Monday.

The US also knocked back the initial spread, but it never got the background level of new cases quite as low. Fauci's concern is that states including Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky are showing signs of impending danger.

However, as Robert had tested positive neither he nor his wife could take Buddy to the veterinarian.

July has proven to be the deadliest month in Florida's prison system since the start of the pandemic, with 25 inmates dying since July 1. That is 20% of the league. Texas had at least 311 deaths with some counties yet to report. The names of the fraternities involved were not released.

More than 4.3 million people have been infected with Covid-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2.

Buddy, much like humans who have contracted COVID-19, had thick mucus in his nose, making it hard to breathe.

Hong Kong has seen a spike in coronavirus infections in recent weeks.

The pandemic is taking a awful toll on Americans and their economy, even as federal and local officials struggle to contain the coronavirus - and in many cases, to agree on a basic level about what preventive measures should be taken. Dr. Anne Rimoin, epidemiologist and director of UCLA's COVID-19 Rapid Response Initiative, told: "We were not careful and it became like a domino effect". Cuban study shows antibody drug lowers risk of death in elderly patients An antibody drug already being used against the coronavirus in Cuba decreased the risk of intensive care admission and death among 19 nursing home residents with moderate Covid-19, according to a study conducted in the island nation. Health security experts at Johns Hopkins University say we have seen some success in treating the virus, but there hasn't been much success in responding to it, especially when it comes to testing.

Florida commercial pilot Rob Koreman, 50, of Fort Lauderdale, said he had been stunned by the climbing numbers in his state.

Wednesday also saw the U.S. COVID-19 total death toll exceed the grim milestone of 150,000, according to Johns Hopkins University (JHU). The country on Friday reported 45 new coronavirus infections in the city of Danang, marking its biggest single-day jump in cases.
