Cases rising again in the United States : COVID-19 updates.

New daily cases of COVID-19 are rising slightly in the U.S., and public health officials are concerned. The U.S. has reported more than 80,000 new cases in recent days – daily totals not seen since mid-February, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.

Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said Friday she was "deeply concerned" about the trajectory of cases in the U.S. The most recent seven-day average of new cases was up by about 7% from the prior week, while hospitalizations have increased slightly and deaths have hovered, Walensky said.

Meanwhile, Europe is seeing a surge in infections, and several countries are reimposing, tightening or extending restrictions. Italy reimposed lockdown measures last week. France and Poland reintroduced partial lockdowns this week. And the Czech Republic voted to extend its state of emergency.

Today's numbers: The U.S. has over 30.1 million confirmed coronavirus cases and more than 548,000 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University data. The global totals: 126.3 million cases and 2.7 million deaths. More than 180.6 million vaccine doses have been distributed in the U.S. and 140.1 million have been administered, according to the CDC.
