US record for new COVID cases yesterday: 42,158
As of Wednesday, 2.3 million Americans have been infected with the coronavirus, and 121,979 of them have died, according to data collected by Johns Hopkins University.
Daily records were set in the country’s three most populous states — California, Texas, and Florida — on Wednesday, with all three breaking records that had been set just days before.
Nationwide, cases are up 30 percent compared to the beginning of this month, while more than half of U.S. states have seen coronavirus caseloads increase over the past week, according to data gathered by Axios.
New York and other states imposed quarantines on visitors from states with high coronavirus numbers on Wednesday, while hospital authorities in Houston warned of an impending crisis in ICU wards as cases mount.
But in the White House, a smiling Donald Trump greeted Polish President Andrzej Duda, and continued to say the crisis was over.
