Coronavirus cases in the United States passed two million on Thursday as nine states see spikes in cases since Memorial Day.
THURSDAY, June 11, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- The number of confirmed U.S. coronavirus cases passed 2 million on Thursday, as public health experts warned of the emergence of new COVID-19 hotspots across the country.
Just three weeks after Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey lifted the state's stay-at-home order, there has been a significant spike in coronavirus cases, with lawmakers and medical professionals warning that hospitals might not be able to handle a big influx of new cases. Already, hospitals in the state are at 83 percent capacity, the Associated Press reported.
But Arizona is not alone in seeing increases in hospitalizations: new U.S. data shows at least eight other states with spikes since Memorial Day.
