The Centers for Disease Control is warning that as many as 30,000 Americans may die of COVID-19 in the next three weeks. The grim news comes as cases continue to rise in many states, including Florida, where 173 people died of the virus in a single day.
Coronavirus Task Force coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx talked about the disturbing resurgence on "Today."
"This is a signal to the American people: we have to change our behavior now, before this virus completely moves back up through the north," Birx said.
In Texas, 14 members of a single family were diagnosed with the virus. One died and another is on life support. They have started a GoFundMe to raise money for medical expenses.
There are so many people dying in Texas hospitals that refrigerated trucks are being used as mobile morgues.
