On Thursday, 943 deaths were recorded, taking the death toll to 138,358.

Worldometers.info however estimated the death toll, much higher, putting it at 141,118.

With virus surge being recorded in many states, the US is moving closer to the alarming benchmark of 100,000 cases per day which Dr Anthony Fauci has warned that the US could reach if it fails to bring the crisis under control.

Florida and Texas both suffered record death tolls on Thursday.
