Stocks had their first red week after their bullish run for almost a month. Investors have started worrying about the potential second wave of COVID-19.

Additionally, 21 US states reported an average daily increase in new cases according to The Washington Post. The Washington State Department of Health warns that the COVID-19 is spreading faster within the state. In the meanwhile, Brazil is now the second-largest country in the world in deaths and WHO worries about the situation there.
