A virus once defined by shifting epicenters is now distinguished by wide and expanding scope: Eighty-one countries have seen a growth in new cases over the past two weeks. Only 36 have seen declines. Here’s our latest case count and maps.
Beijing and Seoul have had a recent surge; in Florida, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Arizona, daily counts of new cases reached their highest levels so far of the pandemic this week. Texas, above in Austin this week, has seen confirmed cases double in the past month. Some businesses, like Apple and AMC Theaters, are now readjusting their reopening plans.
