(CNN)Dr. Deborah Birx on Sunday said the US is in a new phase in its fight against the coronavirus pandemic, saying that the deadly virus is more widespread than when it first took hold in the US earlier this year.

"What we are seeing today is different from March and April. It is extraordinarily widespread.
It's into the rural as equal urban areas," Birx, the White House coronavirus task force coordinator, told CNN's Dana Bash on "State of the Union."Birx's comments come as the US has reported more coronavirus cases and deaths than any other country.
    As of Sunday, the US had reported more than 4.6 million cases of Covid-19 and at least 154,449 Americans have died, according to data from the Johns Hopkins University. This is a breaking news story and will be updated.

    RNC Announces Plans to Livestream Trumps Nomination

    The Republican National Committee (RNC) has made the decision to livestream President Donald Trump’s formal renomination as the GOP’s presidential nominee amid the coronavirus pandemic.

    The RNC said in a press release issued on Tuesday, six delegates from each state and territory would be permitted to attend the event in Charlotte, North Carolina, totaling 336 delegates.

    According to the RNC, a limited number of reporters would be allowed to attend.

    “Given the flexibility indicated by the N.C. Governor’s team upon receiving the RNC 2020 Health Protocol Plan, the COA has worked with the Congressional Press Galleries who will select a limited group of reporters to cover Monday’s formal nomination,” the RNC said.

    It added, “However, given the in-person capacity limitations by the state of North Carolina due to COVID-19, the group will be small as to meet capacity and social-distancing restrictions in place.”

    Television coverage for the event will be provided by C-SPAN and other major news networks.

    The RNC’s announcement comes just days after Trump indicated he may accept the party’s nomination from Washington, D.C., as IJR previously reported.

    He acknowledged this would be the “easiest from the standpoint of security” and “the least expensive from the country’s standpoint.”

    During his daily White House coronavirus press briefing on July 23, Trump revealed the Republican convention in Jacksonville, Florida, had been canceled as a result of a surge in the number of coronavirus cases across the state.

    On Aug. 10, at least three new coronavirus related deaths and 754 new cases were reported in North Carolina.

    The state reported an average of 1,464 coronavirus cases per day over the past week, which amounts to a 24 percent decrease from the average number of infections two weeks prior.

    Since the beginning of the outbreak, there have been more than 138,000 coronavirus cases and over 2,000 deaths as of Tuesday evening.
