The number of COVID-19 cases in Bangladesh hit a record daily high since the outbreak of the pandemic with 7,626 new infections being reported in a span of 24 hours, pushing the nationwide coronavirus tally to 6,59,278, so far.

The death toll rose to 9,447 with 63 new fatalities, third highest in a single day as the virus was first detected on March 8 last year, Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) said in its routine daily statement today.
