Some of them broke in addition to records of hospital admissions, as it happened in North Carolina and South Carolina.

California, the most populous state, reported more than 7,100 new cases. The count in Florida grew by 5,500 in a day, an increase of 25% compared to the record of the previous week and three times the level just two weeks ago.
