Coronavirus cases in California continue to skyrocket, reaching 9,740 in a single day —by far the highest recorded in the state since the beginning of the pandemic, according to data from the California Public Health Department.
Today’s case report smashed the previous high of 7,149 set one week ago today.
The total number of cases in California is roughly 232,657.
In the past day, 110 people died as a result of Covid-19. California has not seen that many fatalities since the end of April when 115 people died in a single day.
