(CNN)In the latest sign that the coronavirus pandemic is far from under control, Sunday ushered in a global record for new infections, with more than 230,000 cases reported in a 24-hour period by the World Health Organization.

The biggest portion of those new infections were in the United States, where a staggering 1 in 100 people has now tested positive and individual states are in worse shape than some countries.

The three countries at the top of the pandemic chart -- the United States, Brazil and the UK -- are those in which people still resist wearing masks.

Meanwhile, President Jair Bolsonaro is being sued for removing his mask during an interview in which he announced that he had tested positive for the virus.

So if you test positive, it means that you had Covid-19 in the past and you probably have some immunity to it.

Florida Rep. Donna Shalala, a freshman Democrat and former secretary of Health and Human Services under President Bill Clinton, said the virus was out of control partly because the governor, a Trump ally, would not tell everyone to wear masks and telling CNN: "this is an American tragedy".

In a statement Saturday, a White House official told CNN that "several White House officials are concerned about the number of times Dr. Fauci has been wrong on things. " The official went on to provide a lengthy list of examples, citing Fauci's comments early in the pandemic and linking to past interviews.
