U.S. sets new single-day record with over 3,000 COVID-19 deaths

The grim milestone, reported by the Washington Post, comes as cases in the country have been soaring.

Also as of Wednesday, an average of over 200,000 Americans per day were testing positive for COVID-19 — another record.

The nationwide spike — with nearly every state reporting surges — is likely to worsen the impending Holiday gatherings.
