At present, at least half of the states in the United States have entered the first phase of the understanding seal, but an expert in the United States said that the United States has not done enough to protect residents from the coronavirus infection."In order to revive the economy, we need to do everything we can to ensure that there are enough measures for every American to protect their own, family, and community health ," said Richard Bessel, former head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But that is not the case.

After weeks of blockade, many state governors began to allow residents to return to normal living conditions. But the death toll novel coronavirus pneumonia is rising in the United States, and public health experts warn that lifting the blockade could kill thousands.

Bessel said: "novel coronavirus pneumonia is not fully detected. We still lack hundreds of thousands of close contacts, and even if we find infected or close contacts, we don't have a safe place to isolate them. "

More U.S. states will reopen

by may 10, at least 43 states will be completely or partially unsealed. California Governor Gavin Newson, the first to issue a home ban and swear to comply with science, announced this week that some retail stores, including flower shops and bookstores, could reopen on Friday.

"We're not going back to normal, we' re going back to a new state, through adaptation and active adjustment, until we get immunity or the vaccine comes out ," Newson said. For the first time since the outbreak, weekly coronavirus deaths in the state have fallen, according to state health data. The number of deaths in the week ending 3 May was 505, down slightly from 527 in the previous week.

Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves announced Monday that outdoor gatherings of up to 20 people will be allowed from this week and restaurant ordering will resume.

In Texas, the governor announced that the wedding venue could be reopened. Weddings and banquets must be held indoors, but attendance should not exceed 25%. The governor's office said there were no restrictions on outdoor weddings. From May 8, the state's hair salons, manicure salons, sunbathing salons and swimming pools will also be reopened, provided certain guidelines are followed.
