Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, South Carolina, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

Fall and winter quickly take people indoors and bring with them the flu season, experts say Americans will need to comply with the guidelines recommended below. Experts say wearing a mask, staying away from social distance and avoiding large crowds will be key, while officials say testing has increased as the infection progresses.
The Johns Hopkins figure shows that the U.S., Brazil, India and Mexico account for more than 0% of the world’s deaths.
Some states fight spikes while others ease sanctions
U.S. With a variety of trends changing in, some local leaders are returning to normal while others are trying to fight the spread of the virus.
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfet announced Monday that “due to substantial progress in the fight against Covid-19, Chicago’s bars, restaurants, gyms and personal services will be allowed to expand service on October 1st.”
“Over the past six months, we’ve asked a lot from our business community,” Lightfoot said in a press release on Monday. But each time, our businesses have moved to the plate. “This next step in our reopening is good news for business owners as well as the communities they serve and the thousands of residents who work for them.”
And California, the state hardest hit by the epidemic, is seeing new cases of coronavirus positivity rates, hospital admissions and declining trends, government Gavin News said Monday – but he warned that numbers would rise if residents did not stay awake.
Meanwhile, the governor of New York. Andrew Cuomo said the state, which has seen an increase in cases registered in homeless camps, would issue guidelines earlier this week for the reopening of “covid safe” homeless shelters. Cases in parts of Brooklyn and Queens are also growing at an “alarming” rate, the New York Department of Health said.
Nearby, New Jersey is preparing to receive 2.6 million rapid coronavirus tests from the federal government to help fight spikes.
Coronavirus and children
Children have about 10% of cases of coronavirus, but people should pay attention to the virus that spreads in that age group, said Dr. Anthony Fawcett said Monday.
“Children get infected. And we’re just more concerned about rejecting the infection in children,” Foci told CNN’s Brian Stelter. “It’s unclear how they transmit the virus.”
Some studies suggest they don’t do it “effectively” as adults, said Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force.
“But it’s an evolving situation,” and “you have to be open-minded when it comes to issues like what the role of children is in transition.”
U.S. Department of Disease Control and Prevention The centers released a report on Monday stating that Covid-19 is almost twice as common among adolescents aged 12 to 17 as children between the ages of 5 and 11.
The report includes data on 277,285 laboratory-confirmed cases in school-age children in the U.S. from March 1 to September 19. In these cases, 37% were between 5 and 11 years of age and 63% were adolescents.
The true incidence of the disease in school-age children is underestimated, as testing was often preferred for people with symptoms, the researchers noted.
CNN’s Holly Yan, Gregory Lemos, Christina Sigglia, Cherry Mossberg, Shelby Lynn Erdman and Mirna Alsharif contributed to the report.
