The United States recorded more than 88,000 new cases of COVID-19 Thursday, marking a new single-day record high for the country.
The U.S. had 88,521 confirmed new cases of the coronavirus, according to a tracker by Johns Hopkins University. It passed the previous high of 83,731 set on Oct. 23.
The U.S. is likely to pass 9 million total coronavirus cases on Friday. It will come 14 days after the nation reached 8 million — the quickest per-million pace so far of the pandemic.
The U.S. continues to lead the world in deaths related to COVID-19 with nearly 229,000.
The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington, often cited by the White House, now projects the U.S. will have an additional 100,000 deaths between now and Jan. 1 if mask usage remains at its current level. That number can be reduced by 1/3 if there is universal mask use.
