MIAMI: Arizona, Texas and Florida together reported about 25,000 new coronavirus cases as restrictions aimed at combating the spread of the pandemic took hold in the United States and around the world in an unsettling sign reminiscent of the dark days of April. The face-covering mandates, lockdowns, health checks and quarantine orders underscored the reality that the number of infections is continuing to tick upward in parts of the world and that a return to normalcy may be farther off than many leaders had envisioned just weeks ago.

AUSTIN: Texas surpassed 10,000 new coronavirus cases in a single day Tuesday for the first time, crossing a sobering milestone rarely seen since the pandemic first hit the U.S. in March. The record high of 10,028 new cases in Texas served as another alarming new measure of the swift resurgence of COVID-19 nationwide and the failures of the country's response. Republican Governor Greg Abbott of Texas aggressively began one of America's fastest reopenings in May, but reversed course last week, ordering bars closed and mandating face coverings in much of the state. New York and Florida are the only other states to record more than 10,000 new cases in a single day. New York hit that grim total back in

The United States is the hardest-hit country in the global pandemic, both in caseload and deaths, and has struggled to
BALTIMORE: The United States has dipped under 50,000 new coronavirus cases for the first time in four days, according to a tally by Johns Hopkins University, but experts fear celebrations for the July 4th Independence Day weekend will act like rocket fuel for the nation's surging outbreak. Johns Hopkins counted 45,300 new coronavirus infections in the US on Saturday after three days in which the daily count reached as high as 54,500 new cases. The lower figure on Saturday does not necessarily mean the situation in the US is improving, as it could be due to reduced reporting on a national holiday. The United States has the most infections and virus-related deaths in the world, with 2.8 million cases and
