Missouri Reports Its Highest Daily Increase in Confirmed Cases of the Coronavirus

MISSOURI — Missouri is reporting the state’s highest daily increase in confirmed cases of the coronavirus, which health officials said is partly due to delayed reporting because of the holiday weekend.

Missouri reported another 773 cases of coronavirus Tuesday, a roughly 3.2% increase from Monday. There have been 24,629 reported cases total since the virus first struck the state. At least 1,042 people have died so far, including another 14 reported Tuesday.

Health department officials attribute the single-day hike partly to delayed reporting from labs to the state.

“We also had a high volume of case accumulation over the holiday weekend and expect some higher than average numbers tomorrow as well,” spokeswoman Lisa Cox said in an email.

On July 4, the state reported only 59 additional cases, for example.

Health department data show roughly 700 daily hospitalizations from COVID-19 in recent days. That’s up from the roughly 600 a day reported at the end of last month but lower than the more than 980 when hospitalizations peaked in May.


WASHINGTON (AP) — Anthony Fauci, former chief White House medical adviser, is expected to testify before Congress early next year as part of Republicans' yearslong investigation into the origins of COVID-19 and the U.
