U.S. reports 195,000 new COVID-19 cases in one day, a record

Source: CBS News

The United States reported more than 195,000 COVID-19 cases on Friday — a new daily high and the ninth time this month a record has been set for new confirmed infections, according to a tally from Johns Hopkins University. Hospitalizations topped 82,000 Friday, and there have been 1,300 deaths a day since Sunday.

Across the nation, more and more cities, counties and states are clamping down, issuing restrictions on restaurants and gyms and implementing curfews in a desperate effort to curb the surge, Tom Hanson reports for "CBS This Morning: Saturday."

For the estimated 50 million Thanksgiving travelers who are doing so against recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, giving thanks may also mean taking big risks.

"Anyone at higher risk of disease, we're encouraging please, it's better not to go. Don't take a chance right now," said Dr. Rob Danoff, director of Jefferson Health Northeast's Family Medicine Residency Program.

The Herman Cain effect, shall we say.

2. Study links Trump rallies to more than 700 Covid deaths

Even as hundreds of thousands of people have died and millions of people of fallen ill, Trump and Republicans remain focused on trying to engineer a coup.

President Donald Trump's campaign rallies between June and September may have caused some 30,000 coronavirus infections and more than 700 deaths, according to a new study by Stanford University economists.

The working paper, released late Friday, examined the impact of 18 rallies held between June 20 and Sept. 30 by comparing spread of the virus after each event to parts of the country that didn't host rallies. The findings illustrate the risks of not heeding public health warnings to wear masks and avoid large gatherings to mitigate the risks of Covid-19, the authors — including B. Douglas Bernheim, the chair of Stanford's economics department — wrote.

“The communities in which Trump rallies took place paid a high price in terms of disease and death,” they wrote. Fifteen of the 18 events studied were held outdoors.

Trump has drawn criticism for continuing to hold events with large, tightly packed crowds in states that are experiencing outbreaks. Many in attendance, including Trump, have not worn masks.

3. At least!

You see this pattern in numerous other countries where right-wingers call for "anti-quarantine" demonstrations (they all use that word - obviously focus-group tested as being the "scariest" ).

Every time nationwide protests are called, Covid cases spike - and later, the deaths.

The idea being, that the worse the pandemic gets, the more discredited any social-distancing measures (and the governments that promote them) become - or so they hope.

4. I started using a near hazmat level full face mask in stores today.

2 people with no masks and 3 with their noses sticking out.

I made a smart move.
