The United States reported more than 56,000 new coronavirus cases Thursday surpassing Wednesday’s record of 52,789 cases, previously the largest single-day total since the start of the pandemic, according to data collected by The Washington Post.

Florida on Thursday reported 10,109 new cases of covid-19, marking a new single-day record for the state, which reported 6,563 cases on Wednesday. There were 68 new deaths, for a total of 3,718. It’s the 25th consecutive day that Florida has set a record high in its seven-day rolling average.

Georgia reported 3,472, up greg abbott Customfrom 2,976 on Wednesday.

In Texas, Gov. Greg Abbott (R), right, on Thursday issued a statewide mandate requiring Texans to wear masks in public in any county with 20 or more positive covid-19 cases — a dramatic move that comes as cases in the state continue to climb. The decision comes as a reversal after Abbott had previously barred local governments from penalizing people who didn’t wear masks in public. On Wednesday, Texas reported 8,076 new cases of the coronavirus.

Lines snaked out the doors, some polling locations didn’t open on time, and others had no working voting machines in several counties in the first hours of voting in Georgia’s primary elections Tuesday, a potential preview of how new voting procedures Democratic-Republican Campaign logosbrought on by the coronavirus pandemic could affect the presidential election in November.

“This seems to be happening throughout Atlanta and perhaps throughout the county. People have been in line since before 7:00 am this morning,” Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms tweeted barely 30 minutes after polls opened Tuesday.
