KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The United States has topped nine million coronavirus cases, smashing its own record for daily new infections.

A tally from Johns Hopkins University shows the infections in the US has soared to 9,034,295 cases, AFP reported, citing a real-time count by the Baltimore-based school.

A day earlier, the US set a record for new daily infections of more than 94,000 in 24 hours, shattering Thursday’s record of 91,000.

As hospitals are once again filling up, the American healthcare system has come under strain.

Italy, meanwhile, has reported 31,084 new infections over the past 24 hours, the healthinfo-icon ministry in Rome said. It is highest daily tally since the start of the crisis.

The ministry also reported 199 Covid-related deaths, compared with 217 the day before.
