CHICAGO (REUTERS) - Six US states reported a record one-day increase in Covid-19 deaths on Wednesday (Oct 21) including Wisconsin, a hotly contested state in the Nov 3 election, according to a Reuters analysis, as infections kept rising across the Midwest and beyond.

Polls show his handling of the pandemic has hurt his re-election prospects. On Wednesday, Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers said 48 people had died from the virus as he announced that a week-old field hospital in the Milwaukee suburbs has admitted its first patient.
