The thirty-six million newly unemployed individuals in the United States alone made increasing economic pressure on the government due to which authorities decided to take risks of reopening the economy but setting off new waves of infections as well as deaths. Images of crowded beaches, bars, and walkways in America suggested some people ignored warnings and enjoy the reopened spaces without keeping social distancing.
Johnson, who hospitalized last month after his serious health conditions due to the coronavirus infection, speculated Sunday that a vaccine might not develop at all, regardless of the huge worldwide efforts by scientists. The Britain Prime Minister wrote in the Mail on Sunday newspaper that there remains an elongated way to go, and frankly, he wants to said that a vaccine for the novel coronavirus might not come to an end. However, Johnson eases the lock-down previous week to allow car traveling and sunbathe on local parks.

Some health experts noted recent surges in infection in Texas, including eighteen hundred new cases on Saturday, with Amarillo recognized as a mounting hot spot of coronavirus. The officials of Texas said that increased testing played an essential role – the more you look for something, the more you find it. Several patients are watching hospitalizations and death rates in the upcoming weeks to see exactly what the new Texas infected numbers really mean.
However, Texas was one of earliest states in the U.S. to allow restaurants and stores to restart, and Dr. Michael Saag at the University of Alabama named Texas as a warning shot for other states to thoroughly watch any escalation in new cases and have plans to take steps to stop them quickly. Several states of the United States lifted stay home orders as well as other restrictions, allowing some particular businesses to reopen.
Mike DeWine, the Republican Governor of Ohio, told CNN on Sunday that he worried about seeing crowded bar images in Columbus on the first day of the permission to restart. With the decision of reopening Ohio, around ninety percent of the economy is back open, according to DeWine.
