More than 7,000 people were confirmed to have coronavirus in California on Wednesday, according to data from California Department of Public Health.
These 7,149 new cases obliterate the previous single day high of just over 5,000, a record set only the day before.
Hospitalization and ICU rates due to the virus are also at an all-time high in the state.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom plans to address the spike in a news conference starting shortly.
California is among at least 26 US states that have recorded higher rates of new cases compared to last week.
