As of 8:30 p.m. Saturday (00:30 GMT), the United States counted 61,262 new infections in the new virus in 24 hours, according to the Johns Hopkins University census.
This is the fifth day that the United States has recorded more than 60,000 injuries, according to the University of Baltimore. 1,051 deaths were recorded on the same day.
The total number of injuries in the United States reached more than 4.6 million in addition to 154,319 deaths, making it the most affected country in the world.
The new figures come as Florida prepares to welcome tropical storm Isaias, which is expected to turn into a hurricane as it approaches the southeastern part of the state swept by Covid-19.
Of all US states, only California, with a population of 21 million or nearly twice the population of Florida, has recorded more cases of coronavirus.
And Saturday, Florida recorded 179 new deaths, bringing the total number of deaths to a record number among other states reached 6,843 deaths.
In the face of the hurricane, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis declared that it is better to “just take shelter” than to send people to overcrowded shelters where it is difficult to maintain social separation, unless the situation becomes more threatening, he said.
