In Florida, the agency that regulates bars acted after the daily number of new confirmed cases neared 9,000, nearly doubling the record set just two days earlier.

"If I could go back and redo anything, it probably would have been to slow down the re-opening of bars", the governor told an ABC News affiliate KIVA.com on Friday.

South Korea, where a resurgence in the past month threatens to erase the country's earlier success, reported 51 new cases, including 35 in the Seoul metropolitan area.

"Period 4 would signify a return to ordinary action and we are not able to do that now", the statement explained.

Washington State Gov. Jay Inslee introduced Saturday he is hitting the pause button on the state's reopening approach owing to climbing instances.

While much of the focus of concerns that the United States is entering a unsafe new phase has been on big Sunbelt states that are reporting thousands of new cases a day - like Texas and Florida - the worrying trend is also happening in places like Kansas, where livestock outnumber people.

Andrew Cuomo (D) said Thursday that his state was treating fewer than 1,000 COVID-19 patients in hospitals, after the number of hospitalized cases dipped for the first time since mid-March.

In latest days, officers throughout the United States have described a increase in situations among the young groups. One state heath official said he is preparing for 5% to 10% of the returnees to be infected, based on arrivals from Indonesia in other states.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom mentioned last week there is certainly been an enhance in young groups screening constructive for the virus.
