one American dies every 107 seconds

Unread post by AHE »

The U.S. set a record this week for new coronavirus cases over a seven-day period with more than 500,000 infections. An American is testing positive every 1.2 seconds.

Daily deaths are also climbing – one of us is dying every 107 seconds, according to Johns Hopkins data.

And daily hospitalizations have been rising steadily for more than a month, from 28,608 on Sept. 20 to more than 44,000 on Tuesday.

"There's no way to sugarcoat it: We are facing an urgent crisis, and there is an imminent risk to you, your family members, your friends, your neighbors and the people you care about," said Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers, whose state is seeing one of the nation's worst outbreaks.

"A national mandate from the federal government for universal masking is more likely to achieve the greatest impact to reduce deaths in the next several months," said Robert Glatter, an emergency physician at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City.

"It's a nightmare scenario, frankly, that this could get quite a bit worse in the next several weeks or months before it gets better," said Ryan Westergaard, chief medical officer for the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.
