What may have seemed like a ridiculously high prediction weeks ago has turned into reality -- and much faster than health experts expected.
The US just reported its highest number of new coronavirus infections in a single day -- 102,831 on Wednesday, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
And it's not just due to more testing. New cases have increased 21% over the past week, according to Johns Hopkins. But testing has only increased only 4.52% over the past week, according to the Covid Tracking Project.
