U.S. stock index futures gained late Sunday, amid a record surge in coronavirus cases. As of midnight Eastern, Dow Jones Industrial Average futures /zigman2/quotes/210407078/delayed YM00 +0.09% were up around 150 points, or 0.6%, while S&P 500 futures /zigman2/quotes/209948968/delayed ES00 +0.07% and Nasdaq-100 futures /zigman2/quotes/210219788/delayed NQ00 +0.08% were up around 0.4%. On Sunday, Florida reported a record 15,300 new cases in a day, as Disney World reopened in Orlando. Meanwhile in Houston, city leaders called on a return to a shutdown to slow the spread of COVID-19 as its hospitals neared capacity. Wall Street, though, has largely shaken off coronavirus worries, with two consecutive weeks of gains. Last week, the Dow /zigman2/quotes/210598065/realtime DJIA +0.17% finished 1% higher, the S&P 500 /zigman2/quotes/210599714/realtime SPX +0.06% booked a gain of 1.8%, and the Nasdaq /zigman2/quotes/210598365/realtime COMP -0.87% advanced 4%.
