More than 6.6 million people worldwide -- including nearly 1.9 million in the United States – have been infected with the new coronavirus, and the number of deaths from the outbreak continues to rise. While efforts to contain the COVID-19 outbreak continue, states have begun to shift their focus toward reopening their economies. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is tracking cases in the U.S. here. Live updates for Friday, June 5, continue below: Trump to speak about unemployment figures Update 8:50 a.m. EDT June 5: President Donald Trump said Friday that he plans to speak at 10 a.m. about the May unemployment figures released by the U.S. Labor Department. Earlier Friday, Trump heralded the “really big jobs report.” US unemployment rate dips to 13.3% Update 8:40 a.m. EDT June 5: The unemployment rate in the United States slipped to 13.3% in May, down from the 14.7% reported in April, according to data released Thursday by the U.S. Labor Department. The figures include an addition of 2.5 million jobs in May, as state governments eased restrictions on businesses prompted by the coronavirus pandemic. The job gain suggests that businesses have quickly been recalling workers as economies have reopened. Other evidence has also shown that the job market meltdown triggered by the coronavirus has bottomed out. The number of people applying for unemployment benefits has declined for nine straight weeks. And the total number of people receiving such aid has essentially leveled off. The overall job cuts have widened economic disparities that have disproportionately hurt minorities and lower-educated workers. Though the unemployment rate for white Americans was 12.4% May, it was 17.6% for Hispanics and 16.8% for African-Americans. Even with the surprising gain in May, it may take months for all those who lost work in April and March to find jobs. Some economists forecast the rate could remain in double-digits through the November elections and into next year.
