Four senior health officials in the United States, including Dr. Anthony Fudge, will testify to Congress on Tuesday about the coronavirus, which is spreading in an increasingly fierce manner in at least 30 states.
The hearing of the Senate Health and Education Committee was determined to be “the latest progress on the safe return to work and return to school.” However, as some countries suspend or change direction on the reopening plan, officials may struggle to overcome the opposite idea.

In an interview on Monday, Dr. Anne Shukat, associate professor of Dr. Redfield, conducted a more severe assessment of the virus: “This is indeed the beginning,” she told the Journal of the American Medical Association.
Shortly after the White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany downplayed the number of cases, she made the above comment. She said: “We know there are some embers that need to be put out.”
Dr. Shuhart also dismissed the idea promoted by President Trump and others earlier this year, arguing that the summer heat may reduce the infection rate. She said: “In terms of weather or season, it is helpful to us, I don’t think we can count on this.”
In many parts of the United States, new cases have proliferated, and at least a dozen states and cities are withdrawing reopening plans.
In Arizona, In the case of a sharp increase in the number of cases, Governor Doug Ducey suspended the operation of bars, gyms, cinemas and water parks for 30 days, and banned indoor and outdoor public events or gatherings of more than 50 people.
In Florida, the daily number of cases on weekends reached a record, and the city of Jacksonville said on Monday that it would be necessary to wear a mask in any indoor public place where social counseling is not possible. The city plans to host the Republican National Congress in August.

After struggling three months ago, the US government’s core relief program for small businesses End with the remaining money.
The pay protection plan was originally scheduled to end on Tuesday after it previously issued $520 billion in loans to save workers’ work during the pandemic. However, as new outbreaks broke out across the country and forced many states to reconsider their plans to reopen business, the plan is being closed and there are still $130 billion in funding.

of The hurriedly constructed and often chaotic aid program operated by the Small Business Administration (Small Business Administration) but implemented by the bank distributed funds to nearly 5 million businesses across the country, providing them with low-interest loans to cover about two Typical salary cost of half a month. Those who use most of the money to pay employees can forgive their debts.
The plan seems to help prevent the country’s shocking job opportunities from deteriorating. As companies in some of the worst-hit industries (especially restaurants) recovered millions of jobs by recalling laid-off workers and hiring new employees, the number of recruits rebounded in May more than expected.
The lender cited two main reasons for the surplus. First of all, most qualified companies that want to make loans can eventually get loans. (The plan limits each applicant’s loan to one loan.) In addition, the complexity and transfer requirements of the plan have prevented some qualified borrowers from worrying that they will not be forgiven.
Most infected people do not pass the coronavirus to others. But in the so-called super-spread incident, only a few people passed it on to many others.
Ben Althaus, a scientist at the Disease Model Institute in Bellevue, Washington, said: “You can consider throwing a match on a match. You only throw a match, and it may not ignite the fire. You throw another one. Matches may not ignite the flames. But then a match hit the correct position, and suddenly the fire rose.”
Scientists say that understanding why some games catch fire and some don’t, is essential to contain the epidemic. they are Try to answer three questions: Who is the super communicator? When does the super spread happen? where
Biological factors may be part of the answer, but some doctors suspect that the situation plays a more important role.
They found that a few days after the infection and even before the symptoms appeared, it seemed that a large amount of transmission would occur within a short period of time. If there are not many people in this window, they will not pass.
Some places seem to be very suitable for promotion. For example, busy bars are full of loud talk. Any of them can spit out the virus without coughing. Without good ventilation, the virus will stay in the air for hours.
Scientists are optimistic that it is possible to avoid paralysis by aiming and blockade Super spread event.
Adam Kucharski, an epidemiologist at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, said: “By reducing a small part of our life’s activities, we can actually reduce most of the risks.”
Just a few weeks ago, hundreds of thousands of Southern Californians flocked to the beach, Disneyland announced that it would reopen soon, and Whoopi Goldberg had challenged Governor Gavin Newsom in the state government’s fight against the coronavirus. Newsom) appreciated. In California, many people think the worst is over.
In fact, the surge in cases up and down the state is just the beginning.
The past week The number of cases in California has soared, with more than 220,000 known infections, and forced Mr Newsom to postpone the state’s reopening in certain counties. On Monday, he said, the number of people hospitalized in California increased by 43% in the past two weeks. More than 7,000 new cases were announced in California on Monday, the highest total number of single-day pandemics.
According to local health officials, Los Angeles County has an average of more than 2,000 new cases per day, and the total number exceeded 100,000 cases on Monday. The virus actively infected one in every 140 people. During most of the pandemic, more than 2,800 cases were announced in the county on Monday.
On Sunday, Mr. Newsom closed bars in six counties, including Los Angeles County and Central Valley, and suggested that eight other counties voluntarily close their nightclubs and meeting places. Disneyland has revoked its decision to open the door.
California is The first state that is closed is also one of the most active states against viruses. However, countries that so actively stop the spread of coronavirus are now forced to ask themselves what is wrong.

Pandemic now Advance across Russia’s vast inland areas, but this has not weakened the Kremlin’s determination to vote nationally on constitutional amendments, which will, among other things, continue President Vladimir V. Putin Reign until 2036.
Moscow seems to be in the worst period of the outbreak. Putin has declared victory over the virus and has used a lot of resources to ensure that the referendum that has been postponed once will continue anyway. Voting officially began last Thursday, but the most important day is Wednesday, which has been declared a national holiday, and I hope more people will vote.
The number of new infections in Russia is indeed declining, but this is mainly due to the sharp decline in new infections in Moscow, the country where the pandemic began.
The situation outside the capital looks very different. In the past week, the pandemic has entered its worst period in various Russian regions to date, including the Republic of Tiva bordering Mongolia and the remote region of the North Caucasus, Karachay-Cherkess Republic.
Nevertheless, the local authorities largely followed Moscow’s leadership. Moscow severely blocked at the end of March, but most restrictions are now lifted.
