The U.S. reported more than 44,700 coronavirus cases on Tuesday, the second-highest daily increase since the beginning of the nation’s outbreak, according to a CNBC analysis of data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.
The newly reported cases bring the nation’s total to more than 2.63 million cases, roughly a quarter of the globes’ near 10.5 million infections, according to Johns Hopkins.
As of Tuesday, the U.S. reported an average of 41,132 new cases, based on the previous seven days to eliminate fluctuations in daily reporting. Tuesday marked the sixth day that average exceeded previous highs set in April, when some officials thought the U.S. reached its peak.
New cases rose by 5% or more in 40 states across the U.S., including in states like Florida, California and Texas.
