AS COVID-19 cases in the United States continue to surge throughout multiple states the CDC issued a warning to rule breakers, saying there is “way too much virus across country.”

On Monday, Dr. Anne Schuchat, principle deputy director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said, “This is really the beginning,” in response to the recent surge in new cases across the US

“I think there was a lot of wishful thinking across the country that, hey it’s summer. Everything’s going to be fine,” Schuchat said.

“We’re over this and we are not even beginning to be over this. There are lot of worrisome factors about the last week or so.”

Over the past week, the US has set records for daily new infections as outbreaks surge mostly across the south and west. The recent spike in new cases has outpaced daily infection in April, when public officials thought the virus was hitting its peak.

“What we have in the United States, it’s hard to describe because it’s so many different outbreaks,” said Schuchat.

“There was a wave of incredible acceleration, intense interventions and control measures that have brought things down to a much lower level of circulation in the New York City, Connecticut, New Jersey area.”

“But in much of the rest of the country, there’s still a lot of virus. And in lots of places, there’s more virus circulating than there was,” Schuchat added.

On Monday, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey ordered bars, gyms, movie theaters, water parks and tubing operators to close for at least 30 days.

This comes following weeks of steady increases in positive COVID-19 test results in the state. The order will go into effect Monday at 8 p.m. and last through at least July 27.

Arizona is the latest state to re-institute strict social distancing guidelines as it battles a new wave of infections. Over the weekend, Florida, Texas and California also clamped-down on residents and businesses.

Statewide positive tests for COVID-19 rose by 7,418 in California Monday to nearly 223,000, the biggest one-day increase since tracking began.

As of Monday, there have been 74,533 positive cases in Arizona according to the Arizona Department of Health Service.
