Elsewhere, Louisiana’s spike in coronavirus cases measured at the highest rate in the world, with Governor John Bel Edwards calling on students and retired medical workers to volunteer. Louisiana now has over 2,300 confirmed cases.
Detroit has emerged as another hot spot, with about 1,400 reported COVID-19 cases in Michigan’s Wayne County.
Chicago has seen a surge, too, with more than 1,400 confirmed cases in Cook County. Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has closed Lakefront Trail and the Riverwalk after crowds of people defied a stay-at-home order.
