Masks, travel restrictions, testing as virus cases surge
BANGKOK (AP) — From New York to the suburbs of Melbourne, Australia, governments and businesses are ramping up precautions as coronavirus case numbers surge. Infections are rising to dire new levels, wiping out two months of progress. Several states have set single-day case records this week, including Arizona, California, Mississippi, Nevada, Texas and Oklahoma. Indonesia surpassed the 50,000 mark for confirmed infections Thursday. In Melbourne, health workers planned to test more than 100,000 residents in a coronavirus hot spot. Door-to-door screening was also planned for the Indian capital of New Delhi, which has reported more than 70,000 cases.
