The U.S. has added more than 56,000 new coronavirus cases, including at least 15,000 in the state of Florida, resulting in 3.3 million cases with more than 135,000 deaths nationwide. This is because President Donald Trump is pushing schools to reopen and threaten to cut funds for those who oppose politics.

However, experts say that the actual number of cases could be far greater than the test delays.
