New reported coronavirus infections in the United States surpassed 50,000 on Wednesday for the first time, with California reporting record 9,740 new cases, the highest in the state since the pandemic began, according to the latest tally.

Total infections in the United States on Wednesday was 51,097, with Texas, Arizona, North Carolina and Georgia also reporting records for new cases, according to virus tracker worldometers.

New infections in the United States have been exploding in the past one month. There were more than 800,000 new cases in June alone.

About 2.6 million people have contracted the coronavirus in the United States and around 130,000 fatalities have been recorded, the data show.

With new infections exploding, some states have been delaying reopening. For instance, California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) on Wednesday announced he was reviving parts of the state’s sweeping lockdown, and ordered bars to close and a range of other service-sector businesses in 19 counties to cease indoor operations. Pennsylvania also began mandating that face masks be worn in public.
