Study: Almost Half Of US States Don't Have COVID-19 Pandemic In Check

According to Business Insider, that's despite all states having already relaxed their lockdown restrictions. Researchers modeled the basic reproduction number — a number that helps determine how quickly the virus is spreading — for each state. They concluded that most states in the Midwest and the South are still seeing relatively high rates of transmission.
