Let's talk about the resurgence in coronavirus cases in the U.S. and what that means 

There are 7.5 million cases of the coronavirus worldwide, with over 421,000 fatalities.

In the U.S., there are over two million cases of the virus with over 113,000 deaths.

Texas now has over 81,000 cases, with over 1,920 deaths.

As of Thursday, Texas saw a spike of over 1,800 cases in a 24 hour period.

Houston officials said they were “getting close” to reimposing a stay-at-home order and could reopen a COVID-19 hospital set up but never used at a football stadium as virus cases rose, Bloomberg reported.

And Arizona’s case count totals 31,200 after reporting 1,412 new cases on Thursday. CNBC reported that cases in Arizona have climbed by nearly 300% since May 1, and have about doubled since Memorial Day.

The state’s hospitals, as of Wednesday were at over 80% capacity.

And North Carolina says that only about 13% of the state’s ICU beds are available due to the rise in coronavirus cases.

North Carolina has around 39,000 cases of the virus, with over 1,100 deaths.

Coronavirus cases have climbed in nearly half the states in the U.S. as businesses reopen following lockdown measures and stay-at-home orders, per an analysis from the Associated Press.

Jim Cramer, however, is looking at the airlines rather than the case count increases in states.
