Test results for more than 72,100 individuals were reported to DOH as of midnight, on Saturday, June 27. He said the rise in cases was being driven by people heading to bars in large numbers. Public health officials in California and throughout the United States have identified bars as the riskiest non-essential businesses now open.

Record-breaking numbers of new coronavirus cases have led some states to reverse their plans to reopen.

U.S. Vice President Pence on Sunday said the federal government would extend support for coronavirus testing in Texas as long as necessary amid a risky surge in new cases, after U.S. health officials had moved to curb some sites in various localities.

In just five months, the Covid-19 death toll has overtaken the number of people who die annually from malaria, one of the most deadly infectious diseases.

Several states in the USA south and west including Texas, Florida and Alabama have seen a resurgence of the virus in recent weeks even as northeastern states New York, New Jersey and CT showed marked improvement. It now has the highest test positivity rate of any county in the state.

"We believe people should wear masks wherever social distancing is not possible, wherever it's indicated by either state or local authorities", Pence told CBS.

Just hours after DBPR's booze ban, Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez ordered all beaches in the county to shut down during the Fourth of July weekend.

California is monitoring several other counties where cases have spiked.

And while the British government warned it might have to shut down the city of Leicester because of a spike in cases, it still plans a July 4 reopening of pubs, restaurants and hairdressers across England.

The tension between reopening battered economies - efforts pushed in the USA by Mr Trump - and public health concerns is a source of debate in almost every country.

"We need to understand, the COVID-19 has taken a very swift and very unsafe turn in Texas over just the past few weeks".

The EU has pushed back a decision on a list of "safe countries" from which travellers can visit Europe - a list that could exclude the US.

Just a day after he sounded a note of optimism about the USA response to the pandemic and said the country was in "a much better place", Vice President Mike Pence canceled events to campaign for Republican President Donald Trump's re-election in Florida and Arizona due to the outbreak, campaign officials said on Saturday.

Infections are also running higher in India, with densely populated cities particularly hard hit. Total infections are at 509,000, with more than 15,600 deaths.

Many global events have had to be curtailed because of the pandemic, with the 50th anniversary of the first Gay Pride march marked mostly online.
