  • Covid-19: US records most coronavirus deaths in single day, passing April mark

The number of Americans in the hospital with the coronavirus likewise hit an all-time high Wednesday at more than 100,000, according to the COVID Tracking Project.

One-day death totals can draw from delayed reports across several days. A private research group says more than 100,000 people are being treated at hospitals. That's more than the number of people killed on 9/11 and shattered the old mark of 2,603, set on April 15, when the NY metropolitan area was the epicenter of the US outbreak.

"The reality is December and January and February are going to be rough times". That's 20% above the record of 2,603 recorded on April 15, CNN reports, noting the total death count stands at 273,799.

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

"Without additional relief, it seems likely to break, even as we enter the third surge of the virus in the Midwest and West", the letter said.

Figures have continued to soar in recent weeks, with around one million new cases per week in November - equivalent to 99 every minute.

Health authorities had warned that the numbers could fluctuate strongly before and after Thanksgiving, as they often do around holidays and weekends.

States across the USA are racing to catch up with the skyrocketing number of coronavirus hospitalizations. The peak came on Friday, when Johns Hopkins says the USA saw more than 205,000 new cases - though those numbers may have been skewed by the Thanksgiving holiday when some local governments chose not to report new info.

The mountainous increase in cases has resulted in a frightening increase in hospitalizations and hospital resource use.
