Coronavirus Cases Reach Record Levels in U.S.: Data

New cases in the U.S. of the coronavirus reached historic levels over the weekend, with deaths shooting upward in most states, even those outside of the Sun Belt that has been hard-hit by the virus.

The Washington Post reported that testing has remained flat nationally, with 20 states and Puerto Rico showing a record-level average of new infections over the past week. Arizona, California, Florida, Mississippi and Texas also surpassed records for average daily deaths during that time, with at least 3,290,000 cases and more than 132,000 deaths in the U.S. reported.

A landmark development occurred on Sunday with New York City marking its first day with no confirmed or probable deaths due to the coronavirus for the first time in months, down from nearly 600 deaths on April 7.
