The US government’s top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, says the country is facing a “serious problem,” as Covid-19 infections surge in southern and western states. Many states are experiencing their highest infection rates since the coronavirus crisis began. Worst-affected are states including Florida, Texas and Arizona, along with California. Texas ordered all of its bars to close, while Florida banned its bars from selling alcohol. On Friday the US Coronavirus Task Force held its first press conference in two months. Vice-President Mike Pence encouraged US citizens to follow local health guidelines. President Donald Trump has remained largely silent on this devastating turn of events.
