June 29, 2020 -- In states with the highest surges in new coronavirus cases, such as Arizona, Florida and Texas, the testing lines are often long and sometimes unruly, according The New York Times.

In some areas, people seeking tests for COVID-19 are being turned away as locations reach capacity, the newspaper reported. Social distancing isn’t often enforced, and hours-long waits in the summer heat can build tension among the people in line.

Two sites at Houston stadiums hit capacity hours after opening. “JUST IN: Our Delmar Stadium #COVID19 testing site reached capacity for June 27,” the Houston Health Department wrote in a Twitter post at noon on Saturday.

On Sunday, the number of COVID-19 cases passed 10 million, with the U.S. at more than 2,535,000, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. Global deaths also ticked past 500,000 with the U.S. making up a quarter of the total with more than 125,000 deaths.
