Los Angeles is becoming the new coronavirus hotspot in the US as the state of California announced a record jump of 7,418 new cases on Monday.

The number in LA, the second-biggest city in the US, exceeded 100,000 despite strict curbs on nightlife and a requirement to wear masks in all public areas.

“The alarming increase in cases … signals that we, as a community, need to take immediate action to slow the spread of COVID-19,” Barbara Ferrer, director of public health for Los Angeles County, said in a statement.
