If you need a sign that the threat of coronavirus remains ever-present, look to Apple who is having to re-close an increasing number of its stores across the US due to the virus.

As Barron’s reports, the total for Apple Store re-closures how now reached 32 after it was confirmed yesterday that 14 more are closing in Florida. They follow 11 closures last week in Arizona, Florida, North Carolina, and South Carolina, and seven stores closing in Houston. If you planned to visit an Apple Store in Florida this weekend, of the 18 available, only two now remain open to the public (Jacksonville and Sarasota), although there’s no guarantee they will remain open for long.

Apple’s official statement on the store re-closures is as follows, “Due to current Covid-19 conditions in some of the communities we serve, we are temporarily closing stores in these areas … We take this step with an abundance of caution as we closely monitor the situation and we look forward to having our teams and customers back as soon as possible.”

According to Microsoft’s Bing COVID-19 Tracker, the US tops the charts for coronavirus. The number of active cases currently sits at 1,577,849, while 765,061 people are classed as having recovered and 126,277 people have died, brining the total recorded infections to 2,469,187. Worryingly, the rate of new infections seems to be growing on a daily basis in the US. On Monday just over 26,000 new infections were recorded, but by yesterday the new infection rate had hit nearly 39,000.
