Pennsylvania counted another 2,900 coronavirus cases on Thursday, the highest daily increase since the pandemic began.
Health authorities in the state said that another 47 deaths had also been recorded, bringing the total number of fatalities there to 8,937.
The new numbers came as infections continued to rise across the United States.
Maryland added 1,198 new cases on Thursday, its second consecutive day of announcing over 1,000 infections. The Navy-Tulsa football game, scheduled for Saturday in Annapolis, was postponed after positive tests at the Naval Academy.
In El Paso, Texas, 1,920 cases were announced -- a decline from the 3,100 recorded the day before, but still above the region's seven-day rolling average.
The cases are announced one day after the US recorded 102,831 new coronavirus cases -- its highest number yet, and the first time the nation has reached the six-figure milestone in daily infections.
New cases have increased 21% over the past week, according to Johns Hopkins University.
