The big picture: The virus is not under control, or anywhere close to it.
That’s especially true in Washington, D.C., where the outbreak tied to the White House appears to be increasing the caseload. The District experienced a 26% increase last week, rising from about 40 new cases per day to about 50.
By the numbers: Nationwide, cases were up 6%, compared to the week before. The U.S. is now averaging roughly 43,700 new infections per day.
Increases continue to span every region of the country.
