The United States endured yet another record daily high in new coronavirus cases Tuesday—58,146, the biggest jump since the pandemic hit the country, according to John Hopkins University data. In recent weeks, the U.S. has hit daily records in case jumps again and again, reversing a national decline in case numbers hard won through widespread statewide lockdowns in spring. States in the South and West that reopened for business as usual are grappling with the consequences of increased transmission and a populace that has become accustomed once again to their normal freedoms. At least 56 ICU units in Florida have hit capacity, and Texas set a single-day record with 10,000 new cases Tuesday; as did California, with the San Francisco Chronicle reporting 9,018 cases, with several counties still left to report their daily numbers. More than 130,000 people have died from COVID-19 in the U.S.
