The fall coronavirus surge continues. Daily infection rates are setting records and the number of hospitalized patients has increased. Friday, November 6, the United States tallied 1,140 deaths from the virus, the fourth straight day where deaths were over 1,000. By Sunday, November 8, the United States was approaching ten million cases and by November 9, the United States passed the 10 million case mark.

To date, over 236,000 have died from the coronavirus and projections show that over 100,000 could die in the next two months. And experts warn that the trends will continue. States have taken measures to slow the virus and experts are recommending masks.
