Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Npr.org: “Coronavirus Cases Rise To Highest Level Since Late July”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

With coronavirus outbreaks picking up speed in dozens of states, the U.S is now climbing steadily toward a new peak in cases that may soon rival the summer surge — when the country hit over 60,000 infections on average a day for weeks in a row.

On Friday, U.S. cases surged higher than they had since late July, hitting nearly 70,000 in one day. The seven-day daily average is now more than 55,000 cases a day. New cases have gone up by nearly 30% from two weeks ago.

Last week, seventeen states — primarily in the Midwest and Great Plains — posted new daily records, according to the COVID Tracking Project.

Hospitalizations also increased in more than 40 states, with the numbers of people currently hospitalized reaching more than 36,000, which is more than half the highs recorded during the spring and summer surges.

Unlike during the summer when a handful of larger states drove up the numbers, the current growth is diffused across many states.
