COVID-19 day 188: Sunday’s data show surge in U.S. deaths and cases

There are worrisome data - both cases and deaths - in Sunday's COVID-19 report from 47 US states and the District of Columbia. Texas and Louisiana reported more deaths on Sunday than the prior weeks’s daily average. California, Illinois, Louisiana, Mississippi and Missouri reported a larger average daily case rate for the week ending 25 July than for the week ending 19 July. This suggests additional efforts need to be implemented to contain the virus.
