Summary

WASHINGTON (AP) — The coronavirus is touching all levels of society and increasing tensions as governments start to ease restrictions that health experts warn should be done gradually to avoid a resurgence of the illness that has killed more than 165,000 people.The mounting pressure was evident in the United States. Yet some state leaders say woefully inadequate federal action, like a lack of testing supplies, is hindering their response to the illness.After insisting the country’s virus testing system was without fault, President Donald Trump said Sunday evening he would be using the Defense Production Act to compel increased manufacturing of testing swabs. Tens of millions of workers have lost their jobs and millions more fear they’ll be next.A few countries are acting to ease restrictions and resume economic activity, but most of the world agrees the steps must be gradual.China, where the pandemic began, has lifted travel and other restrictions, but customer traffic has been slow to return.
