Dr. Anthony Fauci testified before the Senate HELP committee on Tuesday, stating that he would “not be surprised” if the United States eventually reports up to 100,000 new coronavirus cases per day, Axios reports. “I’m very concerned and not satisfied with what’s going on because we’re going in the wrong direction,” Fauci said.
According to CNN, at least 16 states have either paused or rolled back their reopening efforts amid an exponential spike in new cases across the country. Reuters reports that the U.S. saw an increase of 46 percent this past week, compared to the previous seven days. Meanwhile, 21 states have positive test rates that are above the level that the World Health Organization has deemed as “concerning.”
