Hurricane Isaias' imminent arrival forced the closure of some outdoor testing sites even though Florida has become a major hot spot, and other states in the path of the storm prepared emergency shelters that comply with social-distancing measures.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned the effects of the pandemic will be felt "for decades to come".

Even so, the president maintained the spread of the virus is slowing.
