The past November can be said to be the worst month of the epidemic in the United States. The number of infections has increased alarmingly, and many data have set new record highs.
New cases accounted for one-third of the cumulative cases in November.
In terms of new cases, data from Johns Hopkins University in the United States showed that the number of new cases in the United States in November accounted for about one-third of the total number of cases in the United States since the outbreak of the epidemic. According to CNN on December 1, 47 of the 50 states in the United States and Washington, D.C., showed an increase in the COVID-19 epidemic.
The number of hospitalized patients doubled in November
According to the data of inpatients, the number of single-day hospitalizations reported in the United States reached a record 96,039 on November 30, twice the number of patients hospitalized on November 1 and three times the number of hospitalized on October 1. In mid-November, 34 states in the United States reported a record number of hospitalizations at least once. The surge in patients has nearly paralyzed the hospital system across the United States.
On average, one person died of COVID-19 in 70 seconds in November.
Judging from the death data, CNN reported that nearly 37,000 deaths in the United States in November, with an average of 1,231 new deaths per day, which is equivalent to 51 deaths per hour from COVID-19 in November, or an average of 1 death from COVID-19 per 70 seconds. In the last week of November, more than 10,000 new deaths in the United States. Dr. Jonathan Reiner of George Washington University has predicted that the number of new deaths in the United States in a single day may rise to 4,000 in the next few days.
The positive rate of virus testing in 29 states exceeds 10%.
In addition, the national epidemic tracking project launched by Atlantic Monthly shows that the positive rate of COVID-19 in the United States is currently too high, with the positive rate of more than 10% in 29 states. The highest positive rate in Iowa is about 50%. The World Health Organization has previously said that more than 5% of the positive rate will be worrying, because it shows that there are still a large number of cases in the population that have not been detected.
