The US has registered more than 99,000 coronavirus cases in the past 24 hours, a new daily record. This emerges from a balance sheet by Johns Hopkins University.
The country reported 99,660 new infections and 1,112 deaths between Tuesday 8:30 p.m. and Wednesday 8:30 p.m. (1:30 p.m. GMT). The Baltimore-based school’s record showed a day after Americans voted to elect their next president.
More than 9.4 million people have been infected and 2.33,000 have died in the US so far during the pandemic. This is by far the absolute worst number in the world.
