According to a count by Johns Hopkins University, nearly 2.51 have tested positive for the coronavirus in the US and at least 125,500 patients have lost their lives.
The hot spot areas in the country have shifted from the start of the virus pandemic in late February. In the beginning, New York and New Jersey saw massive virus outbreaks, but Texas, Arizona and Florida among other states, have seen rapid spikes in cases this month following their re-openings.
The spike in cases has prompted local leaders in some states to backtrack on their reopening efforts.
Since April, the US has been the worst-affected country in the world. Public health officials estimate the actual numbers are much higher, considering some people who contract the deadly disease are asymptomatic and others lack access to coronavirus tests.
The increase in cases come as President Donald Trump and members of his administration have sought to move on from the threat of the coronavirus and resume campaigning before the 2020 election.
Globally, more than 9.99 people have tested positive for COVID-19 and over 499,000 people have died.
