As states across the country continue to fight the surge of new viruses, the United States has added more than 73,000 new cases to its total number of coronavirus cases.
The governor of Wisconsin said his state is facing an “emergency crisis.”
Governor Tony Evers said: “There is no way to solve this problem. We are facing an emergency crisis. You, your family, friends, neighbors and people you care about are all facing imminent risks.”
More than 10,000 people were hospitalized due to COVID-19 in his state, and more than 5,200 new cases were reported on Tuesday.
According to the World Health Organization, 2 million cases were reported globally last week, an exponential increase that has not been seen since the beginning of the pandemic. The European region is the region with the most new cases.
The World Health Organization said: “Although the number of deaths is gradually increasing, the proportion of deaths is still relatively low compared to the early stages of the spring pandemic.”
