Coronavirus cases double in June in at least 10 U.S. states

The cases of coronavirus more than doubled in June in at least 10 U.S. states, including Florida and Texas, showed an analysis by Reuters on Tuesday.

Arizona recorded the biggest jump in cases in the month, with a 294% rise, followed by South Carolina and Arkansas. Cases have more than doubled in Alabama, Nevada, North Carolina, Oklahoma and Utah.

Nationally, cases in the United States increased by at least 43% and deaths increased by 20%, according to the survey. Several states have yet to update their cases on Tuesday.

Although much of the world seems to have got rid of the worst moment of the pandemic, the United States and some other countries, such as Brazil, are still registering huge daily numbers of cases and deaths by covid-19.

In the six months since WHO (World Health Organization) first reported on a set of mysterious cases of pneumonia in Wuhan, China, more than 500,000 people have died from coronavirus worldwide, including more than 126,000 Americans .

A strong national response, strict quarantines and the mandatory use of masks in public helped to control the pandemic in much of Asia and Europe. In the United States, wearing masks has become a divisive political issue, and many states have started to reopen business without meeting the recommended health criteria for doing so safely.

Last week, 21 US states reported an increase in the number of people who tested positive for the virus above the 5% level that the WHO signaled as a cause for concern. Arizona had the highest rate in the country, at 24%.

Cases increased by less than 10% in June in just four states – New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut and New Jersey.

New York, once the epicenter of the epidemic in the U.S., saw cases rise by about 6% in June – the lowest rate in the country – after strict quarantine and social detachment measures were implemented to help control the disease.
