WASHINGTON, July 6 — The United States recorded 39,379 new coronavirus cases in 24 hours, a tally by Johns Hopkins University showed yesterday, as infections continue to trend up around the country.
The country’s total number of cases now stands at 2,876,143.
The world’s largest economy also recorded a further 234 fatalities, bringing the death toll to 129,891, the Baltimore-based institution’s tracker showed at 8:30pm (0030 GMT Monday).
Sunday is the fourth consecutive day of surging numbers of new infections, including a high of 57,683 on Friday.
The lower number could be attributed to less reporting on the July 4th national holiday weekend.
