  • COVID-19 Deaths and Hospitalizations Set Records In New Single-Worst Day

The U.S. set the record for the most coronavirus deaths in one day since the pandemic began, as 2,777 coronavirus-related deaths were reported on Wednesday (December 2). The staggering figure coincided with the single-worst daily hospitalizations total which topped 100,000 on Wednesday as the nation reels from spiking cases nationwide. The Covid Tracking Project reported that 100,000 people were hospitalized across the country.

Since the pandemic began, there have been 274,311 deaths reported. In the last two weeks that surge has been most acute in New Mexico, where the percentage of new cases has risen by 109 percent; Arizona, at 90 percent; and California, 75 percent, according to NBC News data. So the data we see early next week will reflect not only actual increases in cases, test, and deaths, but also the potentially very large backlog from the holiday.

The United States set a grim new record for active Covid-19 hospitalisations on Wednesday, almost a week after the Thanksgiving holiday. But it's not going to work if half of us do what we need to do.
