New record for virus cases
The U.S. shattered its record for the number of new infections of Covid-19, with 77,300 recorded on Thursday. That took the total number of infections above 3.5 million in the U.S.
Covid-19-related deaths rose to an estimated 924, their highest since early June.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott said, however, that “there is no shutdown coming.”
Further afield, the number of cases in Brazil passed 2 million, while India’s topped 1 million. Both figures are likely under-reported due to less-than-comprehensive testing in those countries.
