The United States shattered its daily record for coronavirus infections on Thursday, reporting more than 77,000 new cases as the number of deaths in a 24-hour period rose by nearly 1,000, according to a Reuters tally.

The loss of 969 lives was the biggest increase since June 10, with Florida, South Carolina and Texas all reporting their biggest one-day spikes on Thursday.

More than 138,000 Americans have died from COVID-19, a toll that experts warn will likely surge following recent record spikes in case numbers and an alarming rise in hospitalizations in many states.

The hardest-hit areas in Texas and Arizona are running out of places to store bodies as their morgues fill up and are bringing in coolers and refrigerated trailers.

U.S. deaths peaked in April, when the country lost on average 2,000 people a day. Fatalities have steadily fallen, averaging 1,300 a day in May and under 800 a day in June before rising again in July, according to a Reuters tally.

Americans have become increasingly divided on issues such as the reopening of schools and businesses and wearing face masks in public, hindering the fight against the virus.

The current tally of 77,217 cases surpasses the previous record set on Friday when cases rose by 69,070. In June, cases rose by an average of 28,000 a day, according to a Reuters tally. In July, they have risen by an average of 57,625 a day.

On Thursday, Texas reported over 15,000 new cases, according to a Reuters tally of county data, while Florida reported nearly 14,000 new cases and California almost 10,000.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the government’s top infectious diseases expert, has warned that cases could soon top 100,000 a day if Americans do not come together to take steps necessary to halt the spread of the virus.

  1. cases but just how many survive….the percentage of deaths is low…time to hold china accountable …..and the governors of the democratic states that have killed innocent people, lied about covid numbers should be held accountable…enough nonsense…

  2. Pretty soon the left won’t have the virus to scare people with any longer, it will have run it’s course and fade away.

  3. Why, is anyone at all surprised? That we continue to get these outrageously high numbers? I mean if you just walk down the street, go to the mall, or whatever one continues to see mask-less people…just about everywhere! Especially, these young people! Who, frankly in reality couldn’t care less! So, again I’m not at all surprised whatsoever that the numbers are increasing! And, to add these numbers may “de facto” may not even be being accurately reported! This news outlet says one thing, while six others say something completely different! Who’s in really is truly saying what’s really going on?

  4. Almost 6 times as many people will die from cancer than from COVID 19 this year, but none of the news station will even raise an eyebrow!!!! News reporters need to start focusing on bigger issues than COVID 19!!!!

  5. Cases are not synonymous with hospitalizations and when you are testing 77,000 people a day you are going to have many more asymptomatic people identified. That in itself shows you that the virus is not as dangerous as people make it out to be and that perhaps the advocates of herd immunity are correct. Furthermore, the stats for both cases and deaths due to the virus are probably over stated because of many reason and in particular politics. Also, in places where they do a nasal test and a blood antibody test if the same person comes up positive on both some places are counting that twice not as a single case. Go figure. Its unfortunate that this virus has been turned into a political football. And like all other issues there are legitimate differences of opinions and the science is not as precise as people would have you believe otherwise there would not be all these different “expert” opinions.

  6. Is this the number of people that were not tested, but had a positive result. Or a group of 12, where one was positive, so the other 11 were positive also? That number?

    Or the motorcycle driver who died from injuries sustained in a motorcycle wreck, and was considered a Covid-19 death? Those death numbers?

  7. Nope, no we didn’t. most of those deaths were from cancer, tuberculosis, suicides, murder, traffic accidents and various other tragedies, but definitely NOT Covid-19. This is just more of the leftist lies being spewed by evil people who will burn in Hell for their foul deeds.
