“We are filling the stockpile in anticipation of a possible problem in the fall,” Navarro told Jake Tapper on CNN’s “State of the Union.” The United States had reported at least 2,270,000 cases and 118,000 deaths as of late Sunday.
Here are some significant developments:
- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and other Democrats condemned comments by President Trump at his Tulsa campaign rally, where he suggested that he had told officials to decrease testing efforts to suppress increasing case numbers.
- China on Sunday halted imports from an Arkansas meatpacking plant where more than 220 employees tested positive for the coronavirus.
- Spain reopened to most European tourists on Sunday, after weathering a brutal outbreak that killed more than 28,000 people.
- Despite lower-than-expected attendance, a top health expert at Johns Hopkins University warned on Sunday that Trump’s rally in Tulsa could be a “superspreader” event, potentially spiking case numbers in Oklahoma, where rates already have been on the rise.
