Abstract: A well-known theorem by H. Corson states that if a Banach space admits a locally finite covering by bounded closed convex subsets, then it contains no infinite-dimensional reflexive subspace. We strengthen this result proving that if an infinite-dimensional Banach space admits a locally finite covering by bounded $ w$-closed subsets, then it is $ c_0$-saturated, thus answering a question posed by V. Klee concerning locally finite coverings of $ l_1$ spaces. Moreover, we provide information about massiveness of the set of singular points in (PC) spaces.
