Even as Arizona, California, Florida, Mississippi and Texas breaking records for average daily deaths, the White House focused on the data of states where the situation is improving.

As Florida is rapidly becoming the epicenter of the national outbreak, an infectious-disease specialist from the University of Miami Health System warned, "What we were seeing in Wuhan six months ago, now we're there."

Dr. Lilian Abbo was referring to the Chinese city, where the killer virus originated, and spread across the country and beyond its borders.
