Coronavirus cases in the United States surpass 3 million

After shattering a daily record this week and recording more than 60,000 new coronavirus cases, the United States has now passed the 3 million mark in the total tally since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

The US has seen 131,594 deaths related to Covid-19, according to the count, maintained by Johns Hopkins University. Florida is starting to see pressure on its health system, as are parts of Texas.

Both of the populous states are seeing surges. California, Arizona and Georgia are also facing serious challenges amid sustained spreads.
