Spanish news agency EFE reported this Sunday that the U.S., the epicenter of the pandemic, exceeded the 5 million infected.

As for the death toll, it registered 162 635.

The most affected states are California, with 555 797 cases, Florida, 532 806, and Texas 497 915.

Regarding the deceased, New York is the most affected territory with 32 773, followed by New Jersey 15 874 and California 10 316.

Plunged in such a dark panorama there’s a debate on the economy between Democrats and Republicans due to Trump's decision to unilaterally sign four executive orders.

He signed them Saturday at his golf club based in Bedminster, NJ.

With an unavoidable electoral scent, these documents include additional benefits for the unemployed, delayed payment of payroll taxes, moratorium on repayment of student loans, and suspension of evictions in federal houses.

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, told Fox News television:

"In fact, what the president did is unconstitutional slop."

EFE commented that the Democrats threatened a lawsuit if they marginalized Congress from approving federal expenditure.

Both Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, the Democratic leader in the Senate, did not specify if they will finally sue Trump's actions.

Asked about the legality of those decrees, Schumer told ABC News: "Well, I'll leave that to the lawyers."

According to EFE, during the past week, Democrats and Republicans held a round of negotiations that ended with mutual accusations.

Thus another infernal tune started to sound from the White House.
