The United States set a record on Monday when it recorded more than 1 million new COVID-19 cases.
That figure is more than double the previous record that was set five days ago.
Despite the rise in cases, some experts believe the focus should be on COVID-19 hospitalizations, which aren't climbing as fast.
Hospital admissions were up 63 percent from the previous week, but still short of the peak that was seen a year ago.
Meanwhile. deaths have remained stable over the past two weeks and well below the record levels that were set last January.
