The United States for the first time has eclipsed the 150,000-case mark for a single day, according to updated data Friday, as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to worsen nationwide.
A record 153,500 coronavirus cases were added on Thursday, tracking data at Johns Hopkins University shows. The new mark is 10,000 cases higher over the previous record on Wednesday.
The United States has now set new daily records for three consecutive days, during which there have been almost 440,000 new cases.
Since the first major spike on Nov. 3, there have been almost 1.3 million new cases nationally. At the start of the pandemic, it took the United States three and a half months to accumulate that many cases.
