COVID-19 cases continue rising in the US. Texas, currently suffering the worst outbreak, has reportedly seen a daily increase of 6.8% in hospitalizations, to 9.286. Several hospitals in Houston are overwhelmed.
Florida, another state suffering from a severe flareup, has seen a modest increase of 3.6% in coronavirus cases, below the seven-day rolling average of 5%. Nevertheless, the daily increase of 7,347 infections could be due to fewer tests, as the positive test rate is up from 14.95% to 16.27%.
