But the state's hospitalization rate, a number that officials monitor to ensure that the health system is not overwhelmed, has also increased.

With breaches of private safeguards, a nationwide reopening has led Washington University of Health Measurement and Assessment (IHME) researchers to raise their estimates of covid-19 death in the summer.

Murray expects a "second wave" to begin in late August, and the United States will reach more than 201,000 coronovirus deaths by 1 October.

But the rate of coronavirus cases in the United States has not yet come down to a level to stop the first wave.

As the virus spreads, it appears after the streets, researchers at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvania said Tuesday.
