States soften the restrictions, despite the failure of Federal recommendations to reduce the incidence
WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump said that by the end of the week, the country will have 10 million tests for coronavirus. The President also announced that States will receive additional funding for testing.
Trump said that the US is about 300 thousand tests a day, and this figure will “significantly” increase.
“This week the United States will pass the mark of 10 million tests, which is almost two times more than in any other country,” he said.
In the framework of the Law for the assistance, overcome the consequences and economic security in connection with the coronavirus States will receive $ 11 billion to help the governors to achieve their goals on testing, the administration announced Monday.
“It was all OK, we did it, did. The money will go, – said trump. – Thanks to these large investments America will continue to conduct more tests than any other country on Earth.”
The United States quickly moving towards the easing of restrictions and the resumption of commercial activities, but a leading expert on pandemic argues that the result will be new infection and death.
The governors of 47 of the 50 U.S. States have eased restrictions on doing business, allowing shops, restaurants, and other businesses to reopen on a limited basis. While mitigation is often accompanied by the enforcement of social distance in at least two meters.
It should be noted that the majority of states do not meet Federal guidelines involving the decline in the number of infections over a two week period.
The many States have passed protest actions in which participants demanded to resume commercial activity so they can return to work and shopping as before, although the Pew Research center showed that about two-thirds of Americans intend to exercise caution when returning to dacoromania lifestyle.
About 80 thousand people died from the pandemic in the United States, far more than in any other country. According to the forecast of the Institute of metrics and health assessments Washington University, by the beginning of August from the coronavirus dies 137 of thousands of Americans, despite the fact that a week ago it was about 134 thousand. The estimated increase in mortality due to weakening the restrictions imposed previously on all over the USA.
“Until we see accelerated testing, contact tracing, isolation of people with positive test results, and the widespread use of masks in public places, there is a significant probability of new infections,” said Institute Director Christopher Murray.US President Donald Trump tweeted on Monday: “Coronavirus scores are much better, declining almost everywhere. Great progress has been made! ”
White House Economic Advisor Kevin Hassett, speaking on the CBS Channel Sunday program, said: “It’s scary to go to work. But the time has come when people should get together and serve their country. ”
