Governor Andrew Como on Friday gave his last briefing on coronaviruses after what he called "111 Days of Hell". For example, former FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb in a tweet posted Friday wrote that the decline in the United States' daily number of newly reported coronavirus deaths reflects "among other things ... improvements in medical care, and more diagnosed cases occurring in milder disease and younger patients as older individuals protect themselves better".
In Texas, one of the first states to push forward with reopening, one mayor said he wished the state reopened more slowly while following coronavirus restrictions.
Nearly half of those cases were reported from the Americas, he said. Many people are exhausted of being in their homes. Countries are understandably eager to open their communities and economies.
