  • U.S. coronavirus cases near 3 million after the country reported a record single-day increase

    1:58

    The United States reported more than 60,000 new Covid-19 cases on Tuesday, setting a fresh record for new cases reported in a single day, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. The country reported 60,021 newly confirmed cases over the previous 24 hours as outbreaks continue to expand across a number of states, mostly across the American South and West. Arizona, California, Florida and Texas have accounted for nearly half of all new cases in the U.S. in recent days. For access to live and exclusive video from CNBC subscribe to CNBC PRO:

    The United States reported more than 60,000 new Covid-19 cases on Tuesday, setting a fresh record for new cases reported in a single day, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.

    The country reported 60,021 newly confirmed cases over the previous 24 hours as outbreaks continue to expand across a number of states, mostly across the American South and West. Arizona, California, Florida and Texas have accounted for nearly half of all new cases in the U.S. in recent days.

    The record spike comes after daily new cases fell below 50,000 over the past few days, though some public health officials warned there could be a backlog of reporting due to the July Fourth holiday weekend. The U.S. has reported about 51,383 new cases on average over the past seven days, a record high seven-day average, up nearly 24.5% compared with a week ago, according to a CNBC analysis of data collected by Johns Hopkins.

    Top health officials, including White house health advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci have lamented in recent days that while many other countries succeeded in shutting down and reducing daily new cases to a manageable level, the U.S. has failed to do the same.

    “The European Union as an entity, it went up and then came down to baseline,” Fauci said Monday during a Q&A discussion with Dr. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health. “Now they’re having little blips, as you might expect, as they try to reopen. We went up, never came down to baseline, and now it’s surging back up. So it’s a serious situation that we have to address immediately.”

    Fauci said last week that the U.S. is “not in total control” of the coronavirus pandemic and daily new cases could surpass 100,000 new infections per day if the outbreak continues at its current pace.

    “I can’t make an accurate prediction but it’s going to be very disturbing,” Fauci told senators at a June 30 hearing held by the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee. “We are now having 40-plus-thousand new cases a day. I would not be surprised if we go up to 100,000 a day if this does not turn around, and so I am very concerned.”

    But the U.S. probably isn’t diagnosing all infections in the country, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said, because some people remain asymptomatic and never get tested. Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the CDC, has said the U.S. is probably diagnosing 1 in 10 cases.

    Former Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb, however, said earlier this week that the U.S. is probably catching an even smaller portion of all infections because some areas with major outbreaks don’t have enough resources to test everyone who wants to be tested.

  • Trump silent as US coronavirus cases soar to new high | DW News

    5:01

    The US government's top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, says the country is facing a serious problem, as Covid-19 infections surge in southern and western states. Many states are experiencing their highest infection rates since the coronavirus crisis began. Worst-affected are states including Florida, Texas and Arizona, along with California. Texas ordered all of its bars to close, while Florida banned its bars from selling alcohol. On Friday the US Coronavirus Task Force held its first press conference in two months. Vice-President Mike Pence encouraged US citizens to follow local health guidelines. President Donald Trump has remained largely silent on this devastating turn of events. DW's Stefan Simons reports from Washington.

  • Coronavirus outbreak: Trump calls large number of COVID-19 cases ‘tribute’ to U.S. testing | FULL

    1:12:28

    U.S. President Donald Trump and members of the U.S. Coronavirus Task Force delivered an update on the government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic on Thursday.

    When asked about the large number of COVID-19 cases in the U.S., Trump said he was not concerned that the U.S. had surpassed China as the country with the highest number of cases, claiming the numbers were “a tribute” to the testing of “tremendous numbers of people.”

    Trump also spoke about reports the U.S. government had stationed troops at the country’s border with Canada, appearing to suggest the decision was an effort at “equal justice” because of the strong troop presence along the southern border.

    As of March 26, there were 83,507 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the United States.

  • Victorians shut out of NSW as state hits worrying record number of cases | ABC News

    10:52

    The Victorian border with New South Wales will be closed from Wednesday after the state recorded its largest single-day increase in coronavirus cases since the pandemic began.

    Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews announced the closure at a press conference this morning where he said his state had recorded a further 127 new coronavirus cases and a man in his 90s had died in a Victorian hospital.

    Health Minister Jenny Mikakos later tweeted a man in his 60s also died from coronavirus in hospital this morning.

    The two deaths bring the state's coronavirus death toll to 22 and the national total to 106.

    The Victorian Premier said the decision to close the border followed talks with NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

    The Premier said of today's 127 new cases, 16 were detected in the public housing towers that have been locked down.

    An additional 10 infections from earlier numbers have been linked to the towers, bringing the total in the outbreak to 53 cases.

    It's essentially a doubling of the numbers since yesterday, Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton said.
