According to one study, Louisiana, with nearly 1,800 cases as of Thursday morning, is experiencing the fastest growth in new cases in the world; Gov. John Bel Edwards said on Tuesday that the current trajectory of case growth in Louisiana was similar to those in Spain and Italy.

This week, President Trump approved the governor's request for a major disaster declaration, which unlocks additional federal funding to combat the outbreak.
