The new coronavirus pandemic has now killed more than 509,000 people worldwide.
According to data from the Johns Hopkins University System Science and Engineering Center, more than 10.4 million people worldwide have been diagnosed with COVID-19 caused by a new respiratory virus. Due to a shortage of tests, many unreported cases, and the fact that some governments have masked the scope of the country’s disease outbreak, the actual number is believed to be much higher.
Since the first case was found in China in December, the United States has become the hardest hit country, with more than 2.6 million cases diagnosed and at least 129,545 deaths.

8:06 am: More than 100 cases in Michigan are related to a single law firm
Officials said at least 107 new cases of COVID-19 were related to a bar in East Lansing, Michigan.
The Ingham County Health Department requires anyone who travels to Harper’s Restaurant & Brew Pub between June 12 and June 20 to be quarantined for 14 days to isolate symptoms and pay attention to the symptoms.
The infected people are between 16 and 28 years old, and no one has been hospitalized so far. Most cases have mild symptoms, and 28 people have no symptoms at all. Officials say at least 40% are students or fresh graduates of Michigan State University.
Officials said that only 12 of these cases were spread through secondary communication channels, which means people who were connected to the first case but did not go to the law firm in person.
In a statement posted to Facebook last week, Harper’s Restaurant & Brew Pub announced that it had decided to temporarily shut down to implement a plan to eliminate wiring and install air purification technology. The bar said it had reopened at 50% capacity on June 8 according to the governor’s executive order.
The company wrote in a post on June 22: “We lined up on the public sidewalk in front of the building.” “We tried to instruct customers waiting in line by using signs on the sidewalk and signs on the railing. Put on masks and conduct social grooming. Our supervision of the queuing lines on the stairs has been successful, but trying to get customers to follow our recommendations on public sidewalks is challenging.”
An increasing number of cases have prompted Ingham County officials to issue emergency orders to reduce the restaurant’s capacity to 50% or no more than 75, whichever is less. The number of seats in the restaurant has been limited to 50% of normal seats, but there is no limit to the number of customers.
Linda Vail, a health official at Ingham County, said in a statement on Monday evening: “It is difficult to control a large number of people.” “By allowing no more than 75 people, restaurants and bars will be able to better strengthen Distance from society and use masks and face masks. I strongly encourage all bars and restaurants to strictly enforce security measures and do everything they can to help stop the spread of coronavirus in our community.”
7:25 am: “The moment we opened, it seemed that COVID did not exist,” the Mayor of Miami said
Since Miami reopened in late May, Mayor Francis Suarez said he has seen people’s actions seem to have never occurred before a coronavirus pandemic.
Suarez told ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos in an interview with Good Morning America on Tuesday: “The moment we opened, it was like COVID did not exist, people just forgot, in some cases Still forgetting.”
He added: “Miami is actually the last open city in Florida.” Some people said: “I was criticized for being too long at the time.”
With the increase in cases across Sunshine State, Miami is now the worst-hit city in Florida’s new coronavirus outbreak. The mayor said his office is doing all it can to control the spread of the virus.
Suarez said: “People gathered together, they had a good time, they are having parties, and are effectively spreading disease, which is beginning to put pressure on our hospital system.”
Miami and several other cities in Miami-Dade County have now forced people to wear masks in public at all times, and Suarez called it “effortless.” Miami also imposes fines on those who do not comply. At the same time, it is found that companies that do not follow the coronavirus protocol will be closed for 10 days in the first occurrence, 15 days for the second occurrence, and 30 days for the third occurrence.
Suarez said: “They are not happy that we are implementing some of these rules, but we are trying to do this surgically so that we don’t have to cancel some vacancies that have been done.” He said: ” We do the same, so we don’t have to re-execute a stand-by order at home, which was very effective in March and early April, but it also hurt our economy.”

From 11:59 pm local time on Wednesday, 10 postal codes in Melbourne are identified as community hotspots for the new coronavirus, and the postal code at home will take effect. According to a statement from Victoria Governor Daniel Andrews in southeastern Australia on Tuesday, the blockade will continue at least until July 29.

In those areas that have recently reopened, businesses and facilities including beauty salons, gyms, libraries and swimming pools will be restricted again. Andrews said cafes and restaurants will once again be open for takeaway and delivery services.
