The country accounts for about a quarter of all cases of infection and deaths detected in the world. Over 30 thousand people died in New York.

Hazard noted that in some states, primarily in the southern, the spread of the virus continues to increase. According to him, there quarantine measures were too early there contrary to the rules established at the federal level. The latter provide for the possibility of moving to the second phase of lifting restrictions only after the number of detected cases has been reduced in the state for two weeks.

The Florida Department of Health reported June 8,530 new cases per day. And an infectious disease doctor at a Tampa Florida hospital, Kami Kim told FT that the number of such patients doubled in a couple of weeks. The number of new cases is growing rapidly in Arizona, Texas, Florida and South Carolina.

According to CNN on June 28, only two out of 50 states reported a decrease in the growth of new cases of coronavirus, these are Connecticut and Rhode Island. In 36 states, the number of patients is only increasing. CNN, like FT, points out that a particularly difficult situation has developed in Florida, which could become a new epicenter of the spread of infection.

Azar said that the reason for this may be too hasty lifting of restrictions, confirmed the former head of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Tom Frieden. According to him, mortality has not yet reached a peak and at least 15 thousand people may become victims of infection in the country next month.

Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo said that the ongoing increase in the number of cases of coronavirus in the US is not the second wave of the epidemic, but the failure of attempts to contain the first wave. According to the FT, he uses such statements to criticize the Donald Trump administration. The actions of the White House are actively criticized by the Democrats. So, the team of Joe Biden, the rival of Trump in the upcoming presidential election, called the trip of Vice President Michael Pence to Texas, where the unfavorable situation continues, a demonstration of the “dismissive attitude that the administration showed towards solving this crisis from the very beginning.”
