U.S. sets global record number of daily cases
Washington, January 4 (RHC)-- The United States recorded more than one million COVID-19 cases on Monday, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. There were 1,080,211 new cases in the country, a global record, with the number of cases doubling on the previous week.
U.S. pandemic advisor Anthony Fauci said the country was experiencing “almost a vertical increase” in cases, adding the peak may be only weeks away. Rates of death and hospitalizations in the US have been far lower in recent weeks than during previous surges.
