No spike in coronavirus in places reopening, US health secretary says”

Mr Azar additionally said that various screening plans in between nations made it hard to count the variety of situations which death prices were reduced in the United States than a few other nations.

The top Democrat in Congress also said legislation passed by the House on Friday would provide for the keys to a successful reopening.

Almost all 50 states in the USA have started to reopen in some way, but only 14 have met federal guidelines for lifting measures in place to fight the spread of the virus, according to Reuters. Republicans have called the bill dead on arrival in the Senate.

He placed the responsibility on local governments with how they handle reopening plans.

"These are very localized determinations".

Azar noted that many counties across the country have yet to suffer a single death, and so, "There should not be one-size-fits-all approaches to reopening".

He added that there are many concerns as shutdowns continue in some areas, as there are serials health consequences from being locked down for extended periods, including people avoiding medical protections they need.

Asked to make clear whether he was condemning the American public for leading unhealthy way of lives, Mr Azar stated: "We have a significantly disproportionate burden of co-morbidities in the United States- obesity, hypertension, diabetes- these are demonstrated facts ... that do make us at risk for any type of disease burden". In response, Azar suggested that was the cost of freedom, saying: "I think in any individual instance you're going to see people doing things that are irresponsible".

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar is laying part of the blame for the coronavirus death toll on underlying health conditions many Americans suffer from.
