Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services reported Wednesday a record single-day increase in Covid-19 cases.
The state reported 1,301 new Covid-19 cases, bringing the statewide total to 36,063.
"This month, we have been experiencing an increase in both testing and positive cases. The increase has caused a backlog of data processing and entry at the state level. Our team is working diligently to address our backlog with the support of newly-trained team members," the department tweeted Wednesday.
