Covid-19: Rates of 'unpredictable' virus differ across country

US reports record-high daily COVID-19 cases of nearly 200,000 U.S. hospitals again under pressure with COVID-19 on the rise

On Wednesday, there were at least 1,893 American deaths from the virus, according to Johns Hopkins University - the highest daily death toll the country has seen since early May.

California Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly is set to hold a press conference on Friday afternoon to provide an update on coronavirus cases in the state, a representative from his office told NPR.

An average of over 900 people a day are said to die with the disease.

Case numbers are trending upward in 46 states and holding relatively steady in four, while no state is seeing a decline in cases.

The United States on Friday (Nov 13) recorded its highest single-day spike of COVID-19 cases, registering over 177,000 new cases, reported The Washington Post.

California has reached more than 1 million confirmed coronavirus cases, becoming only the second state to reach the bleak milestone since the start of the pandemic.

It's reported that some hospitals in Idaho and Missouri have had to turn patients away because they ran out of room.

There have also been ten additional deaths reported by the Department of Health there.

The U.S. contamination curve has undergone three notable waves: a first in the spring with an epicenter in NY, a second in the summer that hit the southern part of the country particularly hard, and a third since mid-October with records being set in the Midwest. "Given the experience in Europe, we expect that the increase in deaths will soon begin to match the increase in cases", said the report. The governor's order also includes private social gatherings, which must be limited to 10 people from three households or less.

The Covid Tracking Project says the number of hospitalizations has more than doubled since September.
