USA sets new peak of COVID-19 cases

US reports record daily number of new coronavirus cases

The WHD reports Johnson County has 54 cases recovered and has experienced 2 deaths resulting from the coronavirus.

In absolute terms, the United States has suffered the most deaths of any country, though not in relative terms.

The New York Times also reported the highest single-day balance sheet the day after the debate, with data showing "more than 82,000 cases".

Fauci has previously said he doesn't think a federal mask mandate would work but on Friday he said it might be time for it - even if such a rule would be tricky to enforce.

"When I look at the attitudes that are out there now about this vaccine, and about who would be interested in taking it - it's really, really troubling", Collins said at a National Press Club virtual event.

"We're going around the corner, we're going around the corner ... it goes away", said Mr. Trump. If only half of the country is willing to get vaccinated, Collins warned, Covid-19 could stick around for years.


Public health officials have attributed the rise in cases, in part, to cooler weather that is forcing people indoors, reported NBC.

Empty chairs are set up to mourn the lives lost in the USA from COVID-19 on the Ellipse near the White House in Washington, D.C., the United States, on October 4, 2020.

Experts fear the holidays might raise infections.

US Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said Friday that household gatherings have become a "major vector" of coronavirus spread. Hospitals in states like Missouri and Idaho say they'll soon be facing a crisis if hospitalizations continue to surge. "The best strategy to delay re-imposition of mandates and the associated economic hardship is to expand mask use".

The study notes that about 49% of United States residents report that they "always" wear a mask in public.

A leading World Health Organization official on Friday also urged country leaders to "take immediate action to prevent further unnecessary deaths, essential health services from collapsing and schools shutting again".
