The US has now tallied 4,813,647 cases and 158,365 deaths, making it by far the hardest-hit country in the world.

Florida has the second-highest caseload of all states except California -- which has double the population.

On Sunday, Florida reported 77 Covid-19 deaths, down from a record 179 the day before, bringing its death total to 6,920.
