The Trump administration is silent as COVID-19 cases surge to highest level yet
The number of new coronavirus cases recorded in a single day just skyrocketed to an all-time high. The Trump administration has said nothing about this disturbing new record.
According to The Washington Post, there were more than 36,000 new COVID-19 infections reported Wednesday by state health departments, “surpassing the previous single-day record of 34,203 set on April 25.”
The top three states with the most infections – more than 5000 each – are Texas, Florida and California.

There have now been more than 2.3 million cases recorded in the U.S., and at least 119,000 coronavirus deaths, The Post adds.
Other trackers have higher death rates.
