It is assumed that the restrictions will affect states that recorded more than 100 new cases of infection for every 100 thousand people.

The White House believes that 18 American States should return to stricter sanitary restrictions due to the increase in the number of cases of coronavirus infection. This was reported on Friday by the portal the Daily Beast regarding a relevant document obtained by the Center for Public Integrity, based in Washington.

According to the Daily Beast, the document prepared for the government group established by US President Donald Trump to combat the spread of the coronavirus was not officially released, but it was distributed to Federal officials. States in the red zone for infection rates include Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Nevada, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Utah. They recorded more than 100 new cases of infection for every 100,000 people last week.

The White House has not yet responded to a request for comment from Free News.

In recent weeks, some American states, including Florida, Arizona, Texas, and California, have seen record rates of disease. In this regard, the local authorities have suspended the process of easing or lifting sanitary restrictions that were started earlier.

According to Johns Hopkins University, which conducts calculations based on information from Federal and local authorities, more than 3.5 million cases of coronavirus infection have been detected in the United States. More than 138 thousand people died.
