Surging coronavirus cases frustrate health experts – Health News Today

Health experts are increasingly frustrated as coronavirus cases continue to surge in areas where the disease was once scarce. There is concern that the number of new cases will only rise further as people flock to beaches and parks for the holiday weekend.

Experts have blamed the spike on some states reopening too early, as well as people defying health guidelines.

Dr. Aileen Marty, an infectious disease specialist, said the U.S. is “heading a million miles an hour in the wrong direction.”
 
Record numbers for new U.S. cases in a single day were set on Wednesday, Thursday and again Friday, when more than 57,000 new cases were reported — showing that the pandemic is so far winning in the country’s battle against it.
 
“It’s absolutely the saddest thing, the most unnecessary situation that we’re finding ourselves in and it’s behaviorally driven,” Marty said.
