More than 270,000 people in the USA have died from Covid-19, the most of any country.

The record daily death toll coincides with news of a record number of hospitalized coronavirus patients, topping 100,000 on Tuesday.

The COVID Tracking Project reported the number of COVID-19 hospitalisations in the USA topped 100,000 for the first time on Wednesday.

Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), on Wednesday addressed the ongoing pandemic, and warned that there will be tough times ahead.

"I actually believe they're going to be the most hard time in the public health history of this nation", he said.

In a letter on Wednesday, the American Ambulance Association said the 911 emergency call system was at a "breaking point".

"The reality is that December, January and February are going to be rough times", Dr Redfield said. Now, the CDC is recommending people cancel plans to travel for the Christmas holiday, with CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield predicting it will "be the most hard time in the public health history of this nation".
