After witnessing a whopping hike in the number of corona positive cases in Texas, Governor Greg Abbott said- corona has taken a “Swift and Dangerous Turn.” In no time, most of the Western and Southern states have recorded an increase in cases after the lockdown was released. As of now, there are more than 2.5 million active cases in the States. 

Abbott said- “Over just the past few weeks, the daily number of cases have gone from an average of about 2,000 to more than 5,000,” 

During a discussion, on Sunday, the Governor stated that more than 5,000 people are getting admitted to the hospitals in a day. To this, Mike Pence, the Vice President of the U.S., said that more COVID-19 testing kits would be provided to the hospitals to fasten up the diagnosis process. 

While stating this, he said- “We are going to make sure that Texas, and your healthcare system in Texas, have the resources, have the supplies, have the personnel to meet this moment,” 

“We know from experience, it will slow the spread of the coronavirus”. He added. 

When the governmental bodies came forward and urged the public to wear masks as a necessary measure to avoid the spread of coronavirus, the public came on the streets and showed outrageous objection to the same. Following this, Arizona witnessed an increase of more than 3800 cases on Sunday, which has tenfold the tension of health departments in the city. 

There were hundreds of people who traveled to rivers to avoid hot weather. This led to a rise in the number of cases. 

As per some health officials in the United States, the actual number of corona positive cases is likely to tenfold than the confirmed positive cases. On this, the CDC (the U.S. Centers for Disease Control) said there are more than 20 million Americans who have been infected already. A high majority of corona positive patients age in between 18 to 34.
