(Reuters) – The United States continued to break dismal records in its fight against the coronavirus pandemic on Wednesday. A worsening outbreak in the north-east of the country puts pressure on an already volatile Midwest.
According to a Reuters balance sheet, the reported new COVID-19 infections reached an all-time high of 142,279 for a second day in a row and over 100,000 on an eighth day in a row.
The number of people hospitalized with the virus rose to at least 64,939 by late Wednesday, the highest level ever during the pandemic. The death toll rose by 1,464.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was the youngest state official to impose a new round of social distancing restrictions on Wednesday to protect a state that was the epicenter of the US outbreak in its early stages.
The United States reported about 10.4 million cases and 241,809 deaths during the pandemic.
