Days after the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention expressed concern about “significant increases” in coronavirus cases, the United States surpassed 50,000 daily cases twice this week, a new daily high.

Little did he know that the coronavirus was likely already gestating inside him. The following morning, Rodriguez felt lousy when he woke up. Initially, he chalked it up to a few too many beers. But as the day progressed, Rodriguez wasn’t feeling better. “I took my temperature and I had a fever of 99.9,” he said. “I knew I had to get tested.”
