Southern states report record coronavirus surges

Florida, Arizona and Texas are among a handful of states halting reopening plans amid the recent coronavirus surge. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott reimposed some restrictions on Friday, including shuttering bars. Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey stopped short of ordering new restrictions but said the state would slow plans to reopen.

All three states were among the first to lift the orders even as cases continued to climb nationwide.

Vice President Mike Pence is postponing campaign events in Florida and Arizona this week amid the virus spike, a Trump campaign spokesperson confirmed Saturday.

The U.S. set a single-day record of more than 40,000 new cases on Thursday, according to the most recent figures released by the Centers for Disease Control, and the number of people hospitalized with coronavirus continues to climb.

In a coronavirus task force briefing on Friday, Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said certain areas of the country are facing a “serious problem.”

“What goes on in one area of the country, ultimately could have an effect on the other areas of the country,” Fauci said.
