United States Surpasses Four Million Monthly COVID-19 Cases for November

The United States has surpassed four million COVID-19 cases for November last Nov. 28, more than double the record of 1.9 million cases last October, according to data from Johns Hopkins University (JHU).

The United States has surpassed four million COVID-19 cases for November last Nov. 28, more than double the record of 1.9 million cases last October, according to data from Johns Hopkins University (JHU).

The surge came over Thanksgiving weekend and amid Black Friday as transportation authorities reported millions of American travelers. Retailers also reported massive crowds of shoppers and overnight lines.

Top government scientist Dr. Anthony Fauci told NBC News on Nov. 29 that officials tried to warn people to not have large gatherings. He now warns of another surge in the coming weeks.

“What we expect, unfortunately, as we go for the next couple of weeks into December, is that we might see a surge superimposed on the surge we are already in,” Fauci said.

Surgeon General Jerome Adams also warned on Nov. 29 that cases will continue to increase.

“The actions that we take in the next several days will determine how bad it is or whether or not we continue to flatten our curve,” Adams told Fox News on Nov. 29.

Data showed that over 1.1 million tested positive last week and the daily average has reached over 170,000, bringing the total number of cases nationwide to over 13 million cases.

Furthermore, deaths are at their highest levels since last April and May as 1,192 new deaths were reported last Nov. 28. The total number of deaths has reached over 260,000 nationwide.

Globally, cases have reached over 62 million and deaths have reached over 1.4 million.
