The coronavirus is spreading rapidly across the United States, recording over 99,000 new cases on Friday. No states are reporting improvements. 

Based on NBC News’ count, 9,241,708 cases have been confirmed in the United States as of Oct. 31. The total death count is up to 231,915. 

The outbreak continues to look differently across the country. Wisconsin, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota are just some of the states experiencing their highest level of cases so far. New York’s cases are increasing, but the state is not considered a hot spot as of now.
