HealthDay Reports: Brazil, United States Fuel Biggest One-Day Jump in Coronavirus Cases Worldwide
Experts say rising case counts reflect both more testing, as well as the spread of new infections.
MONDAY, June 22, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- The World Health Organization recorded the largest single-day worldwide increase in coronavirus cases on Sunday, with Brazil and the United States logging the biggest jumps in infections.
More than 183,000 new cases were reported around the globe in the past 24 hours, with Brazil's daily tally hitting 54,771 and the United States following closely behind with 36,617 new cases, CBS News reported. More than two-thirds of new COVID-19 deaths were reported in the Americas, the network reported.
Experts say rising case counts reflect both more testing, as well as the spread of new infections. In the United States, the resurgence in infections isn't a "second wave," but instead a continuation of the first wave of outbreaks, they noted.
