CNN on the 24th, a model at Washington University in St. Louis predicts that the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the United States may increase from the current 12 million to 20 million by January 20 next year. The report also quoted data from Johns Hopkins University in the United States. Since the beginning of November, more than 3.1 million new cases of COVID-19 have been reported in the United States, breaking the previous record of single-month cases. More than 1.2 million new cases have been reported in the last seven days, breaking the record for new cases in a single week.
The average number of new cases per day in the past seven days has reached 172,118, which is also the highest since the epidemic. New cases are on the rise in 30 states in the United States. New Mexico has seen cases rise by more than 50% in the past week, and only four states have shown a downward trend in new cases.
As the number of new confirmed cases in the United States surges, the number of patients hospitalized for COVID-19 in the United States is also soaring. On the 23rd, the number of hospitalizations in the United States broke the record for the 14th consecutive day, reaching more than 85,000. At the same time, the number of COVID-19 deaths is also rising, with an average of 1,529 deaths per day in the United States in the last seven days, the highest level since May 11.
