Despite increasing corona positive cases, California’s governor, Gavin Newsom, announced the state’s reopening with San Diego and Los Angeles school areas would work online during the fall. The state plans to lift restrictions from restaurants, movie theatres, wineries, card rooms, and zoos, whereas all bars will be forced to close the operations. 

Gavin Newsom, California’s Governor, said- “We’re going back into modification mode of our original stay at home order,” Source: NY Times. 

“This continues to be a deadly disease.” He added—source: NY Times. 

On average, California is witnessing more than 8,000 corona new cases a day (as of Sunday).  

With this, Dr. Anthony Fauci, U.S. Infectious Disease Chief, returned to the White House.

On the contrary, President Donald Trump denounced the decision made and said that schools in Los Angeles should resume as children want to attend. 

Trump said- “Schools should be opened. You’re losing a lot of lives by keeping things closed.” Source: NY Times. 

Reports say one of the top medical advisers suggested that the Governor of Texas reopen the state to bring the economy on the desired track once again. 

On this, the Director of National Center for Coverage Innovation, Stan Dorn, said- “We knew these numbers would be big,’’ Source: NY Times. 

Further, he added- “This is the worst economic downturn since World War II. It dwarfs the Great Recession. So it’s not surprising that we would also see the worst increase in the uninsured. Policymakers need to know now what the approximate magnitude is of insurance losses to decide what they need to do. So this is our best estimate for what the actual coverage losses have been.” Source: NY Times.
