COVID-19 is killing a Texan every 6 minutes, 16 seconds

The U.S. death toll from COVID-19 was nearing 150,000 on Tuesday as several states set weekly fatality records and Florida reported a one-day record for deaths. Further confirming the Sunshine State's troubles with the coronavirus, the Miami Marlins' season was temporarily suspended after 15 players and two staff members tested positive.
Dr. Anthony Fauci of the president's coronavirus task force said the Marlins’ outbreak could endanger the Major League Baseball season, although he told ABC’s “Good Morning America” he doesn’t believe games need to stop now. 
Florida's 186 deaths raised the toll there to more than 6,000. Gov. Ron DeSantis, who three weeks ago ordered in-classroom learning when schools reopen next month, has eased his rhetoric in recent days. He now wants schools to ensure parents have "the choice between in-person and distance learning" for their kids. 
In Tennessee, Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House's coronavirus response coordinator, urged Gov. Bill Lee to shut down bars and limit indoor restaurant dining to help curb an explosion of infections among young people. Lee said no.
Several states on Monday set seven-day records for virus deaths; others set records for new cases. Tennessee set records for both.
Here are some significant developments:
  • Senate Republicans unveiled a $1 trillion coronavirus stimulus package Monday that includes another round of $1,200 payments -- and a proposed sharp decrease in the $600 weekly unemployment bonus.
  • The head of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention says he has been injected with an experimental COVID-19 vaccine in an attempt to persuade the public to follow suit when one is approved.
  • The U.N. says coronavirus-linked hunger is leading to the deaths of 10,000 children a month because of fears of contamination and movement restrictions.
