The resurgence of coronavirus cases across the Midwest, as well as President TrumpDonald John TrumpJudge rules to not release Russia probe documents over Trump tweets Trump and advisers considering firing FBI director after election: WaPo Obama to campaign for Biden in Florida MORE’s return to the campaign trail this week are expected to dominate the Sunday talk shows this weekend. 

According to The New York Times coronavirus tracker, there have been an average of about 56,000 new cases per day in the U.S. over the past week, a 29 percent increase from just two weeks ago. 

As of Saturday afternoon, a total of more than 8,122,800 people have been infected with COVID-19 since it first hit the country earlier this year, with at least 218,900 dead as a result of the virus. 

Several Midwestern states, including North Dakota, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Kansas and Indiana, have reported record numbers of cases this week. 

On Tuesday, Wisconsin had its highest number of newly reported infections in a single day with 3,279 cases, and broke its single-day death toll record with 34 deaths due to the virus. 

The surge in cases across these states has prompted some experts to believe that the anticipated fall and winter wave of cases is already here. 

“We’ve been talking about the fall surge for a long time now. I think that is the beginning of that reality,” Scott Gottlieb, Trump’s former Food and Drug commissioner, told CNBC on Friday. 

Gottlieb is scheduled to appear on CBS’ “Face the Nation” this Sunday. 

The president is also back on the campaign trail after his bout with COVID-19. 

Several Trump family members and campaign officials are expected to be on multiple Sunday talk shows while Trump is set to hold various campaign events over the coming weeks, including in Wisconsin Saturday evening. 

These appearances come despite warnings from various local leaders that the rallies could lead to rises in coronavirus cases in these areas. 

Ahead of Trump’s Wednesday rally in Des Moines, Iowa, the city’s mayor, Frank Cownie (D), told the Des Moines Register that the president’s event caused him to become “worried about the spread” of the virus.
