The United States reported 153,496 Covid-19 cases on Thursday, according to Johns Hopkins University -- the country's highest daily caseload and the first time the number of coronavirus infections have exceeded 150,000 in a single day.

A total of 10,015 people have died of Covid-19 in the US state of Massachusetts since March, according to state Department of Public Health data.

Governor Charlie Baker said earlier this week that Covid-19 infections have increased by more than 300% and hospitalizations by 200% since Labor Day. The state is preparing for this surge by increasing hospital capacity and building field hospitals "where and when the needs are,” Baker said.

These numbers were released by the Massachusetts’s health agency, and may not line up exactly in real time with CNN’s database drawn from Johns Hopkins University and the Covid Tracking Project.

Dr. Larry Corey of the University of Washington and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, who is leading the coronavirus vaccine trials network in the United States, told CNN he thinks it will take about 10 days for the FDA to review Pfizer's clinical trial data.

California just became the second state to surpass 1 million Covid-19 infections since the start of the pandemic -- closely following Texas, which hit the grim milestone earlier this week.

More than 5,000 new cases and 18 new deaths have been reported so far on Thursday, for a total of 1,000,631 confirmed cases and 18,126 deaths statewide, according to Johns Hopkins University data.

Like most other states in the country, health officials are reporting that California's Covid-19 numbers are trending in the wrong direction.

The United States currently has more people hospitalized with Covid-19 than ever before, according to the Covid Tracking Project (CTP).

Eighteen states and one US territory reported record high Covid-19 hospitalizations Thursday, according to the CTP.
