Florida, one of the hardest hit states from the coronavirus, just registered its 10,000th death due to COVID-19. 

It came after the state recorded 174 new deaths Wednesday, giving it a total that's fifth highest among states around the country. It has recorded more than 584,000 cases of COVID-19 so far.

The virus, meanwhile, continues to play havoc with colleges' attempts to reopen classes.

A day after officials at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill decided to pivot to online classes after at least four clusters of outbreaks in student living spaces, North Carolina State University reported its first cluster of positive cases in off-campus housing. Also Tuesday, the University of Notre Dame said it was moving to online classes for two weeks in hopes that infections won't surge.
