According to Johns Hopkins University 40,135 were infected on Friday, thus leading to 2467510 the total of positives in all the USA – with a percentage between 5% and 8% of Americans infected – while the deaths now exceed 125 thousand. Texas is among the hardest hit states: the number of hospitalized people for Covid-19 in two weeks has more than doubled and the peak was hit on Thursday 6 thousand infections. So the Republican governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, signed a executive order in which it closes the bars and reduces the capacity of the restaurants to 50%.
