Florida has registered its highest number of daily coronavirus cases Sunday, with more than 15,000 new infections.

15,299 new coronavirus cases reported in the last 24 hours surpasses the previous one-day high of 12,274 set at the peak of the outbreak in April.

It is also the highest single-day total by any state since the start of the pandemic, erasing the previous daily high reported in California.

It takes the state's total cases to 269,811, according to Johns Hopkins University's latest data Monday. With an additional 45 deaths, total death toll in Florida reached 4242.

A surge in transmission of the virus has put Florida's hospitals under immense pressure. Intensive care facilities reportedly reached capacity in more than 40 hospitals in the state, which is one of the COVID-19 hotspots in the U.S.

Nationally, new daily cases continue to rise above 60000.

With 482 additional deaths, total deaths in the United States reached 135205. Total cases in the country rose to 3,304,942.
