  • COVID cases in US reach record high due to new wave of infection

Until that time, the record was the number of COVID-19 cases on October 23 - 445 thousand new cases, and before that the highest result was considered on October 22 - more than 429 thousand infected. According to data from the World Health Organisation, Wednesday saw a new record high in reported cases worldwide, with over 443,000.

The number of cases reported on Saturday surpassed by more than 6,000 cases the tracking project's previous record of 76,842 on July 17.

The study was carried by the Covid-19 forecasting team at the University of Washington's Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME).

"We are heading into a very substantial fall/winter surge, so the idea that the pandemic is going away. we do not believe is true", Christopher Murray, IHME director and a lead author of paper, told reporters.

Over the last week, the U.S. has tallied 441,541 new infections - its largest seven-day increase since the end of July.

Asked about President Donald Trump's claim that the United States was "rounding the turn" on the pandemic during Thursday night's presidential debate, Azar told CNN that Trump was trying to provide hope to Americans waiting for a vaccine. More than 8 million people in the US have been infected with the virus, and more than 223,000 people have died from the disease since the pandemic began, according to Johns Hopkins University. Two peer-reviewed studies recently showed a drop in mortality among patients hospitalized with COVID-19, suggesting health care workers have gotten better at helping patients survive the disease.

There were more reported coronavirus infections in the United States on Friday than at any other time during the pandemic, according to an analysis of state-level data by the New York Times.

About 400 thousand cases, registered on October 24, occur in North and South America, as well as in Europe.

Dr Jeff Pothof, an emergency medicine physician at University of Wisconsin Health in Madison, expressed worry about a lack of compliance with public health measures in the state, where some groups have challenged Democratic Governor Tony Evers' COVID-19 restrictions in court.

Almost 2,500 people are in hospital with COVID-19 in IL, the state's top public health official, Dr Ngozi Ezike, told a news conference. While the survival rate of COVID-19 has likely improved since the spring, many of those surviving coronavirus infections are requiring significant stays in the hospital.
