US hits record of 94,000 coronavirus cases in 24 hours
The US hit a record number of new coronavirus cases on Friday for the second day in a row, topping 94,000 infections in 24 hours, according to a tally from Johns Hopkins University.
The country, which has seen a resurgence of its COVID-19 outbreak since mid-October, recorded 94,125 new cases in the 24 hours up to 8:30 pm Friday (0030 GMT Saturday), according to a real-time count by the Baltimore-based school.
That broke the record of more than 91,000 cases set just one day earlier.
