Lenient restrictions on indoor businesses such as gyms and restaurants are seen as the culprit behind the increase of COVID-19 cases. Many businesses have also been caught not abiding by social distancing protocols and proper face mask coverings. Despite more testing kits being administered, it is shown that the increasing positive cases are attributed by more social contact and family gatherings, particularly among younger people ranging from ages 18-49 that are asymptomatic in California. Hospitals in Arizona are now dealing with short supplies on bed spaces to accommodate new patients, with 88% of ICU beds and 84% of hospital inpatient beds being occupied. The World Health Organization is implementing that states should have a positive case rate at or below 5% for two weeks before they loosen restrictions on movement.
