WASHINGTON: The US has recorded its biggest one-day rise in coronavirus cases as 84,218 people tested positive on Friday, according to a Reuters tally.

 Covid-19 cases in the US are nearing a daily record and the death toll is closing in on 224,000.

The US is the worst coronavirus-hit country with over 84 lakh COVID-19 cases.

Over the past week, the US has reported an average of 60,000 new cases per day, the highest seven-day average since early August.

More than two dozen US states are reporting rising Covid-19 cases, and new White House task force reports show a worsening of the pandemic across several regions of the country.

Meanwhile, the US Food and Drug Administration on Thursday approved Gilead’s antiviral drug remdesivir for treating patients hospitalised with COVID-19, making it the first and only drug approved for the disease in the US.

Remdesivir

Remdesivir was given to President Donald Trump this month when he was diagnosed with COVID-19. It was originally developed as a treatment for Ebola and Hepatitis C.
