Covid News: US Daily Record for Cases Is Broken

United States has broken a record for average daily infections, according to the The New York Times, which reported 267,000 fresh Covid cases in the country.

It comes after the hard-hit country decided to shorten the recommended Covid-19 isolation and quarantine period from 10 days to five, drawing criticism from some medical experts who said it could create more confusion and fear among Americans.

"The previous US daily cases record was set on January 11, 2021 when the seven-day average was 251,232," Times reported, adding Mid-Atlantic areas like Washington, Maryland and Virginia broke records for daily cases a day ago.
