U.S. states in chaos as the government pulls back on reopening

A new rise in cases followed the anti-lockdown nationwide riots in the US. The COVID-19 pandemic, which has already taken the lives numbers exceeding 125,000 citizens, is on the rise again. Hospitals are bending over backward to meet the needs of the people, and are under extreme pressure.

While the US President Donald Trump himself doesn’t take to wearing the mask, local governments are calling the shots to impose restrictions. States of Oregon and California have made masks mandatory. While some state Governments are imposing restrictions and preventive methods, many others are opposing it.

The South has been among the first to reopen, and the cases rebounded. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, amid the new spike in cases, whistled for the ban of alcohol. He described the recoil in the cases in the past few weeks as  “the very swift and very dangerous turn”. Gov. Doug Ducey, state of Arizona, ordered the complete shut down of bars, gyms, movie theaters, nightclubs, and water parks for a total of 30 days. According to FoxNews, Ducey said his state was “going in the wrong direction”. In Oregon, the Governor necessitated that face masks should be worn indoors. This was in regard to the rising number of patients hospitalized due to the virus.

“Modeling from the Oregon Health Authority shows that if we don’t take further action to reduce the spread of the disease, our hospitals could be overwhelmed by new COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations within weeks,” the Democratic governor said. “I do not want to have to close down businesses again like other states are now doing. If you want your local shops and restaurants to stay open, then wear a face covering when out in public.”

Reopening put off indefinitely in states of  Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Idaho, Louisiana, Maine, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Washington and New York.
