US Records Highest Daily COVID Toll in 2 Months

Rich Pope Coronavirus has been found in several people in Florida

After hitting a plateau in the spring, the rate of new coronavirus cases has risen to staggering heights in a number of states across the South and West this summer.

California and Florida, two of the most populous states, reported a one-day record spike in deaths yesterday, together accounting for 362 of the 1,227 new deaths.

On Wednesday, Florida reported another record increase, with 217 fatalities in the last 24 hours, according to the state health department.

Almost 10,000 new COVID-19 cases were reported in the state, bringing the total in Florida to 461,379.

The state continues to be one of the epicenters of the coronavirus outbreak, although hospitalizations for the disease were down slightly Wednesday.

Economies around the globe reported record slumps on Thursday and companies from banks to vehicle makers warned of losses in the latest fallout from the pandemic that has infected more than 17 million people across the globe. "We needed state coordination, if not flat-out a federal mandate".

The US remains the worst-hit country with over 4.4 million infections, while its death toll exceeds 150,700.

The US accounted for the world's highest number of infections and fatalities at 4,424,806 and 150,676, respectively, according to the CSSE.

Some mitigation methods, such as widespread use of face coverings in public, have been undermined by the president, who only recently supported their use.

Around 1,000 deaths have been reported daily around the country for the past several days. The pandemic has killed at least 660 787 deaths in the world since the end of December, according to a report drawn up by the Agence France-Presse from official sources Wednesday. The county now has 54,312 known cases and 676 deaths. "Crowded indoor house parties are not smart or safe", Governor Phil Murphy wrote on Twitter.

A total of 8,187 people have now been infected since the pandemic started.

Belgium and Austria also said their economies shrank by 12.2 percent and 10.7 percent.
