U.S. Records Highest Incidence of COVID Cases in 24-hour Period

More than 63,000 coronavirus cases were reported

On Thursday, a whopping 63,200 coronavirus cases were reported in the United States, marking another all-time, single-day high for new confirmed infections. The previous high was on Tuesday, when 60,000 cases were reported across the country, according to figures from Johns Hopkins University.

Three of the hardest-hit states — California, Texas and Florida — just recorded their highest daily death tolls yet. There's growing evidence the surge is linked to reopenings. 

Still, much of America is pushing ahead with its reopening plans. There's no bigger symbol of that than Walt Disney World, which started welcoming passholders Thursday for "previews" and will reopen to the general public on Saturday, with new safety rules in place, amid Florida's surge in cases.
