Some states in the United States of America have begun reintroducing restrictions on businesses again after the country’s cases passed 2.5 million.

Florida, which is one of the hardest-hit states recorded more than 9,500 new cases on Saturday, June 27, over 500 more than what was recorded on Friday.

Florida’s 9,585 new cases has taken their infections to 132,000 with some 3,300 deaths.

As a result, Florida and Texas have tightened their measures and reimposed restrictions on businesses, just when things were getting back to normal.

According to the Miami Herald, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis imposed new restrictions, ordering bars in the state to stop serving alcohol on their premises although it was not clear how the new measures would affect restaurants.

Miami Mayor Francis Suarez told the BBC on Saturday that the “sheer numbers are so high” that they are putting a huge strain on the city’s healthcare system.

“Right now we are penalising those who don’t wear masks. We may have to, at some point, implement a stay at home order,” he stated.

Texas Governor, Greg Abbot also told bars to close and limited restaurants’ indoor seating capacity to 50%.
