Trump apparently wants to show that the United States is returning to normal as he seeks reelection in November. He added, "May cut off funding if not open!"

Local authorities reversed course on a reopening plan, issuing an emergency order to shut down gyms, party venues and restaurants, with exceptions for takeout and delivery, which will go into effect on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, Trump threatened to "put pressure" on governors who resisted. More States are reporting a record number of infected and Florida may face a shortage of hospital beds in intensive care units.

As the USA emerged from a July 4 weekend of picnics, pool parties and beach outing that health officials fear could fuel the worsening outbreak, more states are reporting a troubling increase in the percentage of COVID-19 diagnostic tests that come back positive - a key indicator of community spread that experts refer to as the rate of "positivity".

Governor Gavin Newsom said state regulators visited almost 6,000 bars and restaurants over the weekend to ensure compliance with rules barring indoor seating or the reopening of any establishment that serves alcohol without food.

During Wednesday's news conference, reporters confronted the vice president on Trump's tweet and asked "Do you also disagree with those guidelines, and are you concerned that you may be putting the health of students and teachers at risk trying to meet the president's demand to reopen?"

He later added that it was "important that we don't react emotionally, but we act based on data".

"I did not expect it to grow this quickly" in the US, says Bob Bednarczyk, assistant professor of global health and epidemiology at the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University in Atlanta.
