The US registers more than 3,100 deaths from viruses in a single day

The United States recorded more than 3,100 deaths from coronavirus in a single day, breaking the record suffered in the spring as the number of hospitalized is passing 200,000 a day, the government reported Thursday.

The figures reflect a country increasingly in crisis and experts expect the situation to worsen, in part due to the fact that last week the Thanksgiving holiday was celebrated and many people participated in family gatherings despite warnings from experts and authorities.

Across the country, the rebound has overwhelmed hospitals, leaving them understaffed and leaving doctors and nurses exhausted.

“The reality is that December, January and February will be difficult months, probably the most difficult months in the history of public health of this nation,” said on Wednesday Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. of Disease (CDC).

The health authorities had already warned that the figures could fluctuate around the holiday, as usually also happens after weekends, since it takes time to report cases. For this reason, initially the numbers seem to decrease, but when the health agencies finish registering the cases, they increase again.

Even so, cases, deaths and hospitalizations have been on the almost constant increase for several weeks, to the point that they are breaking records day after day.

On Wednesday, the United States registered 3,157 deaths from coronavirus, according to the Johns Hopkins University count. That number exceeds the death toll from the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and left behind the previous high of 2,603 ​​on April 15, when the New York metropolitan area was the epicenter of the pandemic.

The number of people hospitalized also reached an unprecedented number on Wednesday, according to the COVID Tracking Project. In the past month it has more than doubled.

Separately, the number of confirmed infections rose to more than 200,000 on Wednesday for the second time in less than a week, according to the Johns Hopkins tally.
