Over the weekend, the number of coronavirus cases reported worldwide soared past 10 million. U.S. deaths are approaching 125,000, and the total number of coronavirus cases reported topped 2.5 million amid worsening outbreaks in Florida, Texas and Arizona. Trump refuses to wear a mask in public, and his administration has sent mixed signals on the increasingly politicized issue for weeks. Florida’s rolling seven-day average has risen by 102 percent since a week ago, an increase second only to Louisiana, where the seven-day average is 123 percent higher than that of a week ago. The state’s seven-day average of new deaths has also increased: It is now 15 percent higher than it was last week.
