Top US virus expert warns of ‘se­ri­ous prob­lem’

Arab News - - News Internatio­nal - AFP

Amer­ica’s top in­fec­tious dis­eases expert has warned the US is fac­ing a “se­ri­ous prob­lem” from a resur­gent coro­n­avirus as the ill­ness puts the brakes on re­open­ing two of the coun­try’s largest states.

Texas and Florida closed bars and reim­posed other curbs as the num­ber of in­fec­tions in the US hit a sin­gle-day record with in­creases in 16 states, mostly in the south and west.

The con­ta­gion also con­tin­ued its march through Latin Amer­ica, where Brazil recorded an­other 1,140 deaths and Ar­gentina tough­ened a lock­down. In Europe coun­tries wran­gled over plans to par­tially re­open the EU border.
