Brett Giroir, the man Trump appointed to oversee testing, testified at a House hearing Thursday that "this is a real increase in cases" and not just attributable to increased testing."There is no question that the more testing you get, the more you will uncover", Giroir said Thursday".

Britain on Friday exempted dozens of countries from its quarantine rules as the coronavirus outbreak slowed in Europe, but excluded the United States as the pandemic accelerates across the Americas.

"New infections in the United States have been on an uptrend since June", said Junichi Ishikawa, senior foreign exchange strategist at IG Securities.

Global coronavirus cases exceeded 11 million on Friday, according to a Reuters tally, marking another milestone in the spread of the disease that has killed more than half a million people in seven months.

Alabama, Alaska, Idaho, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee all set single-day records for new cases on Friday, according to a Reuters tally.

Bacterial infections have been described in much more than 210 nations and territories due to the fact the 1st cases had been discovered in China late very last calendar year. The data is not lying.

"It is never too late in an epidemic to take control".

Just two weeks ago, the United States was reporting about 22,000 new cases a day.

The pandemic has now entered a new phase, with India and Brazil battling outbreaks of over 10,000 cases a day, putting a major strain on resources. In Los Angeles County, California, the health department ordered beaches closed and fireworks shows cancelled.

Nevertheless, popular tourist city Rio de Janeiro authorised bars, restaurants and cafes to reopen at 50 percent capacity.

Cases also continue to surge in the Middle East, where worst-hit Saudi Arabia passed 200,000 infections.

US states have delayed and in some cases reversed plans to let stores reopen and activities resume.

In Asia, however, swift lockdowns have largely made progress against the disease.

The virus is believed to have emerged at a market that sold live animals in the central city of Wuhan late previous year.
