Record-setting day for virus cases in six states

[NFA] Coronavirus cases spiked in Arizona and Florida on Wednesday, a day after those states and four others reported record daily increases of new infections.

Florida reported over 2,600 new coronavirus cases on Wednesday and Arizona more than 1,800... the second highest daily increase after setting records the day before.

On Tuesday, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis rejected the idea that reopening his state too soon was the reason behind the spike in cases.

“The restaurants have been doing this for what have they been doing it for, for six weeks?

The idea that that all of a sudden is the reason?

I'm not sure that's the case.

So we're not shutting down.” For weeks, nationwide cases trended downwards, but now the numbers are rising - and sharply - in about half a dozen states, according to a Reuters analysis.

In those states - COVID-19 hospitalizations are also increasing or at record highs.

In Arizona, 83% of intensive care beds are occupied, a record high, according to a state website.

While in Texas, the number of coronavirus patients in hospitals surged roughly 11% in a single day, according to a state health website.

And unlike spikes reported in new infections, rising hospitalizations cannot simply be attributed to increased testing.

Yet for now, that's not slowing plans to reopen the Texas economy - a mistake, according to some.

"Personally, I think we've opened up too soon... I'd like to see it going down before we start seeing large crowds and gatherings.

In New York, which was once the epicenter of the outbreak - Governor Andrew Cuomo said the state now has the country's lowest infection rate.

"New York, the number of people going into hospitals is going down.

The percent testing positive is going down.

These are facts." And he took the federal government to task over its handling of the pandemic.

"This federal government is making a mistake on the way that it is handling this COVID crisis, and how it is now advising states and the people of this nation." More then 116,000 have died from COVID-19 in the United States, by far the most in the world.

Covid-19 testing: The different types and why is it so important?

The Government has announced two new tests for coronavirus and flu, which canreturn results in just 90 minutes, are to be deployed in hospitals, care homesand laboratories from next week. The tests have been hailed as a crucialinstrument in the fight against the pandemic, especially as the UK heads intothe colder months. There are two types of test; the swab test and the finger-prick test, used to test if a person has Covid-19 or once had the virus. Thetwo current test available has some setbacks, mainly being the amount of timeit takes to process results, between 24-72 hours to get results. The mainthing with the news test, yet to be introduced, is the speed with which theyare able to detect not just Covid-19, but also other seasonal illnesses. Thiswill be crucial as Britain heads into winter, as will easily identify ifsufferers will need to self-isolate.
