US record high of 45,557 new coronavirus cases in one day
Wednesday saw 45,557 new coronavirus cases in the U.S – a one-day record that topped the April 26 tally by more than 9,000 cases. Health experts traced the resurgence in the southern and western states to the Memorial Day reopening of businesses and loosened lockdown. The Northeast reported significant decreases in infection due to the authorities maintaining policies of social distancing and wearing masks. Visitors from US hot spots arriving in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut are now asked to quarantine for two weeks.
