The United States reached a grim milestone on Wednesday as the number of confirmed daily coronavirus cases soared past 50,000.

On Tuesday, the U.S. had about 2,635,780 active coronavirus cases, according to the Johns Hopkins COVID-19 tracking project. That number swelled to 2,686,480 on Wednesday, an increase of 50,700 active cases.

The daily increase between Tuesday and Wednesday is the biggest single-day spike since the COVID-19 pandemic began. And it’s clear that a handful of states, especially ones with large populations, are driving the spike.

Texas, Florida, Arizona, California, Washington, and many other states are experiencing a surge, underscoring the reality that relatively lenient enforcement of social distancing and other public safety measures—as well as premature reopening of businesses in states like Florida and Texas—has put America on a backward trajectory for containing coronavirus, according to Dr. Anthony Fauci, who leads the NIH’s infectious disease unit.

The governors of Texas and California, as well as local officials in Florida, have imposed renewed restrictions such as closing down bars, indoor dining, and mandating residents to wear face masks in public.
