The earlier document excessive in 24 hours was on September 6, so the pattern seems to be quickening. 

Sunday was the brand new document with 307,930 new instances reported globally. The leaders:

  • India 94,372 new instances
  • United States +45,523
  • Brazil +43,718.

The US has the world’s largest financial system, thus attracts a lot of the eye. Renewed exercise and large-scale gatherings (loads of political rallies for instance) are driving new instances and conserving the pipeline full for hospitalisations and deaths forward. No less than new case numbers within the US are off their every day peak of 77,000 or so again in mid-July. 

The previous record high in 24 hours was on September 6, so the trend appears to be quickening.
