Coronavirus in Nebraska, Iowa: Tracking COVID-19 curve of cases, deaths – KETV Omaha

as we see new cases rising and we’re tracking them very carefully. There may be a tendency among the American people to think that we are. We are back to that place that we were two months ago. The reality is we’re in a much better place. But yesterday we saw more new cases in this country than ever before. Was all 50 states air opening up our country again. People are going back to work. No mention of the at least 11 states that are now pausing or rolling back reopening. We have an exponential rise in many places and we’re not locked down, so it makes me very worried about where we’re going to be. A month from now. At noon in Texas, the bars were ordered to close ones more. Houston is now recommending people stay home again. Clearly, we opened up too fast too soon. In my district in the Rio Grande Valley, we had a 700% increase in just the last 30 days in Texas. There are now more new cases and Mork over 19 patients in the hospital than ever before. My only concern is are these restrictions too late? Are they enough in Florida, Day reopening began mid May. Fewer than 1000 new cases were reported today, nearly 9000 again an all time record high. They just outlawed alcohol consumption and bars again. Still no statewide mask order. But Miami will now find anyone who won’t wear one, hoping that helps. We really don’t want to have to go backwards and undo some of the openings and potentially re imposed a state homework, but you can’t discount that option as a possibility. Meanwhile, some of those Northeast states hit hard early now hoping toe have kids back into modified classrooms. Come the fall, I can tell you. Plan A is a maximum number of kids in schools. Testing must increase, say the experts. The White House task force now considering what’s called pool testing. You pull the blood of a bunch of people and tested. If negative, they’re all clear. If positive, then you take the time to test everyone. Individually. Pooling would give us the capacity to go from 1/2 a 1,000,000 tests today to potentially five million individuals tested to that per day,
