US authorities record highest one-day rise in Coronavirus infections ever, Florida overwhelmed

Another grim Covid-19 record in the United States, as the country records its highest daily number of infections since the start of the pandemic. On Thursday, that figure reached 60,500, an increase from the already-high Wednesday, when it stood at 60,000. Over the past two weeks, infections have been rising in no fewer than 41 of US’ 50 states, and among them, Florida is one of the worst-hit.
