The World Health Organization on Sunday reported a record-breaking jump in the number of new COVID-19 cases reported worldwide in a single day, with at least 307,930 new cases confirmed. The daily tally – reported Sunday – was largely driven by another near-record total out of India, along with a surge in new infections across the EU and the UK and – notably – Israel, which is now second only to Bahrain for highest infection rate globally (that’s cases/population). The US and Brazil also contributed their fair share of cases.
