Texas Governor Greg Abbott said that the spread of the Corona virus took a "very rapid, dangerous turn."

Abbott said that the number of injuries ranged between "2,000 and 5,000 per day during the past weeks."

Western and southern states recorded an increase in the number of injuries, after the closure restrictions were eased.

The number of injuries in the United States has now exceeded 2.5 million, with more than 125,000 deaths confirmed, more than any other country.

Reimposition of restrictions

The high number of injuries prompted officials in Texas and Florida to tighten restrictions and close some businesses, amid renewed warnings that hospitals are unable to absorb patients.

On Sunday, the Texas governor said that nearly 5,000 people are hospitalized every day.

US Vice President Mike Pence said Texas will provide more testing tools to detect the Covid-19 virus.

He stressed that the US administration is keen to provide Texas and its health care system with resources, supplies and personnel to counter the virus.

The Vice President urged Texas residents to wear face masks in places that require this, saying: "We know from experience that this will slow the spread of the Corona virus."

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said at the joint news conference with Abbott on Sunday that the nationwide enforcement of the face mask was "too late".

She added that the United States' record in the number of HIV infections is the worst among countries in the world.

In some cases, such as in Texas, the request to wear a face mask has met with street protests by those who reject the measure.

Also, the state of Arizona, on Sunday, recorded an unprecedented new number in the number of injuries within a single day, with injuries exceeding 3,800 cases.

States in the southern and western parts of the United States have seen a spike in cases after lockdown restrictions have been lifted in recent weeks.

What are the latest figures for the United States?

Hopkins University put the total number of injuries at 2,539,544But health officials estimate the real numbers are 10 times higher than Hopkins.

And the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated that about 20 million Americans would be infected with the virus.

The director of the authority, Dr. Robert Redfield, said that most of the injured, especially in the western and southern states, are young men and their ages range from 18 to 34 years.

The developments come at a time when the White House announced that the situation is on its way to stability in most parts of the country.

At a press conference on the Coronavirus on Friday, Mike Pence praised the Trump administration for "the remarkable progress in moving our nation forward." He highlighted the improvement in employment and retail sales.

Johns Hopkins University said that the number of HIV infections since the beginning of its spread in China late last year and its spread to the rest of the world has exceeded 10 million cases.

The number of injuries in Europe and the United States has reached half of the total number of injuries in the world, but the rate of spread is currently increasing rapidly in the American continent.
