National Coronavirus Updates

  • According to CNN, as of 1:00pm on Monday, June 22, 2020, there are 120,044 coronavirus-related deaths and 2,289,168 total positive cases in the United States.
  • House of Representatives
    • House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) condemned President Trump’s remarks at his campaign rally in Tulsa Saturday night in which he said he told officials to administer fewer coronavirus tests to keep case numbers down. Pelosi suggested that any effort to restrict testing will mean “more Americans will lose their lives.” “The President is ethically unfit and intellectually unprepared to lead,” she said in a statement. Trump’s comments drew a chorus of criticism from congressional Democrats and public health officials, who said it validated fears that the president was more focused on saving face amid the pandemic than on protecting public health. A White House official told The Washington Post that Trump was joking, a common defense from Trump’s aides when he says something controversial. Twelve states on Sunday reported new highs in their seven-day rolling new case average, with Oklahoma showing the biggest increase, 16 percent, over its previous high. And Missouri hit a new rolling average high for the first time since April 12, 70 days ago, according to tracking by The Washington Post. There are more than 2.2 million confirmed cases of coronavirus in the country, with almost 119,000 deaths.
  • White House
    • A White House adviser said Sunday that the Trump administration is preparing for a possible second wave in the novel coronavirus pandemic this fall, as 29 states and U.S. territories logged an increase in their seven-day average of new reported cases after many lifted restrictions in recent weeks. White House trade adviser Peter Navarro disclosed the preparations for the possible second wave but rejected the suggestion that a second wave had already taken hold. “We are filling the stockpile in anticipation of a possible problem in the fall,” Navarro told Jake Tapper on CNN’s “State of the Union.” More than 2,270,000 cases and 118,000 deaths have been officially reported in the United States.
