The pandemic has been causing vast economic consequences, with unemployment figures comparable to the great depression of 1929. Check out what happened below.
The previous record was held by the city of New York with over 12.000 cases in one day. Just in Florida there has been over 269.000 cases and the restaurants are starting to close again. Experts think there is a direct relation between the opening of Walt Disney thematic park and the rise of coronavirus infections.
Ron DeSantis has imposed a $50 fine for not wearing a mask but it is not enough.
