States Announce Restrictions Due To 2nd Day Of Covid-19 Infections; Topping 100K

On Thursday, 121,000 new cases of COVID-19 were reported, topping the record-breaking report marked the day before.
For the first time, the U.S. saw a six-figure total on Wednesday. In just two days, the country has confirmed over 220,000 new cases. According to CNN, the past week’s tally reached more than 660,000 cases of Americans with the virus.

This spike has resulted in more than 53,000 citizens hospitalized across the nation, the COVID Tracking Project purports. Doctors have warned the public that deaths are likely also to spike.

State leaders are pushing for new restrictions to slow down the spread, including New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who requests visitors traveling through its airport to present a negative COVID-19 test, regardless that the state is doing “extraordinary well” when compared to other states.

Connecticut officials have decided to put limitations on restaurants, religious ceremonies, and event spaces. Its governor placed private gathering restrictions through Thanksgiving as well.

Gov. Gina Raimondo of Rhode Island has implemented a stay-at-home advisory. It will go into effect Sunday, starting from 10 pm to 5 am during the week, and on weekends people shouldn’t be out after 10:30 pm.

Officials share the same sentiment, that private gatherings are helping to spread the virus. Raimondo has threatened to come back with a shutdown order if residents don’t stop.

According to data received from John Hopkins University, for three consecutive days, America has lost more than 1000 people per day. On Thursday, 1210 people died. This number is quickly going up.

Tennessee, New Mexico, and North Dakota have the highest reports of deaths from Thursday. The Midwest is currently a hotspot, where hospitals are “following the region’s sharply accelerating case surge.”

“Reported deaths from the Midwest are rising as well, several weeks into that region’s case surge,” the project said.
Early Friday, there were 21,133 new reported cases and another 144 deaths.
