And by “over,” I mean “peaking.”
BREAKING NEWS: The United States has for the first time surpassed 100,000 new coronavirus infections in a single day, as a steadily rising number of hospitalizations threatens to again overwhelm some health systems…
Four states — Maine, Minnesota, Idaho and Indiana — set new single-day records for infections Wednesday.
And seventeen states —Kansas, Tennessee Virginia, Oklahoma, Montana, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, Ohio, Nebraska, Minnesota, Indiana and West Virginia, among others— have reported record-high numbers of current covid-19 inpatients, according to data tracked by The Post.
The COVID Tracking Project says there were some 103,000 cases, to be more precise, and that that is indeed a new daily record. More than a thousand Americans died. Cases are up nationally by 21 percent since last week and hospitalizations are up by 13 percent, with WaPo noting that some hospitals in St. Louis and Omaha have begun postponing elective surgeries again because they need the beds.
