The biggest single-day surge with more than 50,000 COVID-19 cases has been recorded for the second consecutive day. Dr Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) says that the country is not heading in the right direction with respect to tackling this outbreak. What can the sudden surge be attributed to? The numbers are truly worrying in many parts of the country. Almost 8,000 cases, on Thursday (July 2), were reported in Texas. More than 10,000 coronavirus infections in Florida were recorded in one day alone.

These are startling numbers. There are differences between the first surge that was seen in heavily populated cities like New York City, which was the epicentre in the United States early on in March. Then too, it was often confined to hotspots in specific areas. Whereas now, a much wider group of people are affected by the deadly virus. The increasing number of cases, however, can also be attributed to the increasing number of tests conducted by the Trump administration.
