The United States reported 1.34 million Covid instances on Monday, with the daily case rate surpassing global records as hospitals rose across the country. According to an NBC News calculation, at least 1,343,167 new Covid infections were reported on Monday, eclipsing the previous high of 1,044,970 instances set on Jan. 3. Due to several states not reporting over the weekend, daily case counts are often high on Mondays. The statistic still shows a sharp increase in infections in the United States as the highly transmissible omicron form spreads. According to Reuters, the United States has reported 61,490,917 cases since the Covid-19 outbreak began on Monday, the largest daily amount for any country in the world. On Monday, the seven-day average for cases in the United States reached an all-time high of 740,594 cases per day, with 24 states reporting their highest seven-day average ever.
