Coronavirus Pandemic in the United States is intensifying. Washington, the capital, has stepped up anti-import measures, requiring people from other states to provide a certificate of negative virus test results and even be tested again after arrival.

According to the travel reminder updated by the Washington City Government on the 5th, people who come to Washington from a high-risk state for at least 1 day should undergo a virus test within 72 hours before departure, and those who intend to stay in Washington for more than 3 days should arrive within 3 to 5 days after arrival. Do the test again.

Washington has listed 42 states as high-risk areas for the pandemic. On July 27, it began to require people from these states who are engaged in non-essential activities to self-isolate for 14 days upon arrival. 

However, this requirement is not compulsory and “all depends on consciousness.” Mayor Muriel Bowser admitted on the 5th that many people may not self-quarantine, “We still call on everyone to reduce travel, but we know that people will come here, and they may not self-quarantine for 14 days.”

According to the new regulations, private facilities and institutions such as hotels, universities, businesses, and hospitals in Washington can require people from high-risk states to show a negative test result for the virus.

However, the government will not intervene in checking the test certificate. “No one will ask you to show a certificate at the airport, station, bridge or road.” Bowser said.

In addition, there are many exceptions to the new rules. For example, people from neighboring states of Maryland and Virginia do not need to be tested; people who stay in Washington for less than 24 hours do not have to do it.

Coronavirus Pandemic in the United States continues to worsen. Data released by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on the 5th showed that on the 4th, there were more than 100,000 new confirmed cases of Coronavirus, reaching 106,537. The cumulative number of confirmed cases nationwide exceeded 9.46 million; there were 1141 new deaths in a single day, and the cumulative number of deaths exceeded 233,000 people. 

pandemic from Johns Hopkins University in the United States showed that as of the evening of the 5th, the cumulative number of confirmed cases in the United States exceeded 9.6 million, and the death toll exceeded 234,000.

The Washington pandemic data also deteriorated rapidly, but slightly better than the worst period of the pandemic in May. On the 5th, the city reported 81 new cases in a single day, with a total of 17,682 cases; a total of 650 deaths.
