For a second straight day, Texas also registered an all-time high in the number of people hospitalised with the highly contagious respiratory illness 7,890 patients after 238 new admissions over the past 24 hours.

By comparison, New York state the U.S. epicentre of the outbreak months ago, reported just 844 hospitalisations on Saturday.
