U.S. Cases Tick Higher; Trump No Longer a Risk: Virus Update

The U.S. saw 54,600 new Covid-19 cases on Saturday, the country’s fourth-consecutive day of infections exceeding 50,000.

Total cases now stand at 7,717,633. Another 628 people died, in line with recent increases.

President Donald Trump is no longer considered a coronavirus transmission risk to others and has met the criteria to end his isolation, his physician Sean Conley said.

Conley didn’t say if the president had tested negative for the virus. Trump returned to action on Saturday in a short campaign-style speech to supporters at the White House. He will hold campaign events in Florida on Monday, then move on to Pennsylvania and Iowa.
