Meanwhile, Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers asked residents to wear masks when leaving the house. “I know there are still many ideas about wearing masks in public places, but my duty as a governor is to put people’s safety first, do what is best for the people, That’s what I’m doing, “said Evers.
Dr. Deborah Birx, a member of the White House Covid-19 response committee, said in an interview with Fox News that, the Covid-19 epidemic is trending strongly in Midwestern states such as Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska “for travel and other travel-related reasons”.
Initially, the Covid-19 outbreak broke out in the northeastern areas of the US. The state of New York currently has the highest number of deaths from Covid-19 in the United States with more than 32,000 cases. Mark Levine, chairman of the New York City health committee, said the number of people with Covid-19 in the northeastern states is also showing signs of a sharp increase again, especially New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts. “For the first time since spring, the number of cases is rising again in all three states,” said Levine.
In line with the growing number of cases, many states in the United States have recently begun to witness a record increase in the number of deaths due to Covid-19. Florida on July 30 recorded the third highest number of deaths due to Covid-19, Arizona also recorded the highest number of deaths ever.
Covid-19 is rebounding strongly not only in the US but also in Europe and other parts of the world causing governments to start considering the blockade again.
