In this April 28, 2020 photo, Eusebio Soria poses for a photo behind a glass door at the entrance of his home as he recovers from the new coronavirus in Cabrejas del Pinar, Spain, in the province of Soria. Soria said that at first his doctor diagnosed him with the flu until his fever wouldn't go away and he was sent to the hospital where he spent 11 days after being tested positive for the coronavirus. Many in Spain's small and shrinking villages thought their low populations would protect them from the coronavirus pandemic. The opposite appears to have proved true. Soria, a north-central province that's one of the least densely peopled places in Europe, has recorded a shocking death rate. Provincial authorities calculate that at least 500 people have died since the start of the outbreak in April. (AP Photo/Felipe Dana)

In this April 21, 2020, photo, a woman walks on Waikiki Beach in Honolulu. Hawaii has some of the lowest coronavirus infection and mortality rates in the U.S. As cases started to rise in March, the governor did something no other state can — effectively seal the borders. People who do come face a two-week quarantine. That's cut off the flow of tens of thousands of tourists a day. But it’s walloped an economy that relies on tourism, and officials say travel restrictions will be among the last to end. Of the few remaining places in the world with no confirmed infections, nearly all are islands in the Pacific. American Samoa, a U.S. territory west of Hawaii, is the nation’s only jurisdiction with no cases to date. (AP Photo/Caleb Jones)

In the fine print, next to “United States Census 2020,” it...
