Restaurants, bars and beaches in the world's worst-hit nation closed from California to Florida, as states reeling from yet another surge in the deadly virus braced for Independence Day festivities.

Global infections have hit their highest level in the past week, WHO data showed, with chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus saying new cases topped "160,000 on every single day."

With more than 52,000 new coronavirus cases in the United States alone in the past 24 hours, according to a Johns Hopkins University tally, several U.S. states imposed 14-day quarantines on visitors in the buildup to the long weekend's July 4 celebrations.

California suspended indoor dining at restaurants in Los Angeles and several counties, while New York scrapped plans to allow restaurants to seat customers inside from next week.

At least five states - Arizona, California, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas - had record-high totals of new case reports.
