On a day the United States registered another record for Covid-19 patients in hospitals, the country passed 21 million cases of the coronavirus, according to Johns Hopkins University, APA reports citing CNN.

The US, with 21,007,694 cases as of Tuesday evening, has almost as many as the next three nations -- India, Brazil and Russia -- have combined.

The US has added 1 million cases in the past four days.

That's as the record number of hospital patients Tuesday topped 131,200, according to the Covid Tracking Project.

And some states are warning the worst may be ahead. Experts have said holiday travel and gatherings could help fuel another surge of Covid-19 infections.
