US coronavirus: Experts fear new wave of infections

As most states in US, encouraged by president, lift their lockdowns, health officials fear new wave of infections.

US health officials are warning about the possibility of a new wave of coronavirus infections as more than two-thirds of states begin to open.

The death toll in the United States is nearly 90,000, making it the worst-affected country in the world.

And although the overall number of new cases in the country is on the decline, in some states, the number of infections is actually on the rise.
