Thursday’s declaration by Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra comes two weeks after the World Health Organization declared the disease a global emergency. The official U.S. case count rose to more than 7,100 by Friday morning, though the true toll is likely far higher due to severe shortages of testing.
