Florida reported 15,299 confirmed coronavirus cases on Sunday — a new single-day record for any state, according to its health department.
The big picture: The number smashes both Florida's previous record of 11,458 new cases and New York's record of 11,571 in April, at the peak of its outbreak. It comes just a day after Disney World reopened in Orlando, despite skyrocketing case numbers in Florida in recent weeks.
Worth noting: More than a dozen states have reported new highs for daily case numbers this week.
- The country's alarming rise in cases isn't just due to increased testing — particularly where the number of cases has grown fastest over the last month, Axios' Andrew Witherspoon and Caitlin Owens report.
