The daily rise in coronavirus cases set new records worldwide and in six states in the U.S. Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma and West Virginia all had record single-day increases in cases on Friday, according to NBC News’ tally.
The World Health Organization meanwhile announced that 350,766 new infections were reported Friday, surpassing by nearly 12,000 a record set earlier in the week. The new cases include more than 109,000 from Europe alone.
So, maybe we should keep wearing masks, washing our hands and social distancing. And stop meeting in large gatherings.
“We’re sick of wearing masks, we’re sick of all of this, and I get it, but we’ve got to hang in there for our kids. We’ve got to hang in there for ourselves,” Gov. Mike DeWine, a Republican, said.
You know, til people stop getting infected and dying.
