According to Johns Hopkins University's tally, 31,746 people tested positive for the COVID-19 in the United States in the past twenty-four hours, bringing the nation's cumulative number of cases to 2,310,334.

Additionally, the data showed virus-related deaths rising by 425 to 120,384, with the total number of tests distributed by health workers across the nation reaching 27.5 million. In the meantime, the number of people released from hospitals after fully recovering from the disease reached a total of 640,198.

Several areas of the country saw a spike in coronavirus infections as of late after lifting some of their COVID-19 containment measures, with Louisiana delaying its next phase of reopening over a spike in cases, while Texas governor noted the "unacceptable" spread rate must be "corralled."
