Coronavirus cases set new single-day records in 6 states and worldwide
The daily surge in coronavirus cases set new records in six US states and worldwide.
Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma and West Virginia all saw record increases of one day on Friday, according to NBC News.
The World Health Organization, meanwhile, announced that 350,766 new infections were reported on Friday, up from a record of nearly 12,000 at the beginning of the week. There are more than 109,000 new cases from Europe alone.
In the United States, the Ohio governor told reporters Friday that there isn't a single reason why cases are showing up, but he believes people are not taking enough precautions against infection.
"We're sick of wearing masks, we're sick of it, and I see, but we have to stay there for our children. We have to stay there for ourselves," said Gov. Mike DeWine, a Republican, said.
"I think the best way to sum it up is that people just aren't careful," said the governor. "They go about their family life and meet people."
Ohio set a daily record of 1,840 new cases and Oklahoma of 1,524.
Missouri recorded nearly 3,000 new cases, according to NBC News. The state also set a new daily record for deaths at 129.
Cases also rose in West Virginia, with 382 new cases on Friday. Montana at 722; and North Dakota at 656, according to the record.
In Montana, cases have more than doubled in the past two weeks compared to the previous two weeks. According to Governor Steve Bullock, there has been a staggering 230 percent increase in Covid-19-related deaths in just over two months.
"Disregarding expert advice from state and health authorities, as well as the pleas from our health workers and frontline neighbors, are leading us down this path," he said in a series of tweets on Friday.
"We need to listen to our healthcare workers. The way forward is easy, if only the Montans follow the guidelines and restrictions we have. This is the way that will save lives and keep our schools, our main street businesses, and ours Communities are open and secure. "
In New Mexico, New Hampshire and Vermont, coronavirus cases have nearly doubled in two weeks.
New Mexico Lt. Governor Howie Morales urged residents to continue wearing face masks and practicing social distancing. "New Mexico is not going to let us lose all of the good progress we've made on COVID-19," he tweeted.
Dr. Deborah Birx, White House coordinator of the coronavirus task force, said the spread of the coronavirus in some areas was less due to people going to public places than to small gatherings.
"What we see is that we lose our vigilance when we are with people we know," she said, noting that some people have the virus and may be asymptomatic.
Dr. Ashish Jha, dean of Brown University School of Public Health, told NBC's Nightly News that he hoped a possible second wave wouldn't be as bad as what the country saw in the spring.
"One reason is that we now have more tests available so we can see when things are starting up and going bad and hopefully change our behavior," he said.
