Shortcut to the full report for Thursday.

Each day now produces a litany of worse horrors:

The USA’s number of new cases hit an all-time high, 91,000, 23% over last Thursday. It was the 27th consecutive day with an increase over the same day of the previous week. That result is completely consistent with recent trends. The last seven days have produced 24% more cases than the previous seven.

A record number of states (40 + PR and DC) appeared in the red zone for new infections (143 cases per million per day).

A record number of states (38) were in the red zone for fatalities (3 per million per day.) The country’s daily fatality count exceeded a thousand for the third consecutive day.

Also increasing on Thursday: the number of hospitalized COVID patients, now the highest since August 13th; the number of COVID patients in ICU beds, now the highest since August 14; and the number of COVID patients on ventilators, now the highest since August 18.

Fun fact: there are eight in the NL, NONE in the AL.
