US reports 42,018 new virus cases, 313 fatalities

The John Hopkins University's compiled data revealed on Monday the number of infections registered in the United States since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic increased by 42,018 in the previous 24 hours to surpass 31.67 million. The number of cases registered daily thus maintained its downturn trend noted during the weekend.

The figure for death related to coronavirus recorded daily almost halved in comparison to Sunday, landing at 313 and taking the total count to 567,217.

Earlier in the day, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Rochelle Walensky stressed that, despite a successful pace of mass vaccination, the numbers of cases and hospitalizations were rising and urged the public to stick to measures imposed to curb the spread of the virus.
