The number of new coronary pneumonia diagnosed in the United States exceeds 8.62 million, and the number of new cases exceeds 80,000 for two consecutive days
CNN reported that in the previous two days, the number of new cases in a single day in the United States exceeded 83,000, making it the two worst days since the outbreak. On the 23rd and 24th, the number of newly confirmed cases in the United States in a single day was 83,757 and 83,718 respectively. This set a record for the number of new cases in a single day since the outbreak in the United States.
Scott Gottlieb, former director of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, said on the 25th that the curve of the U.S. epidemic has begun to rise linearly,”we are now at a dangerous tipping point.” US media reported that in the past week, the number of new cases in 35 states in the United States has increased from last week.
CNN reported that the surge in cases is related to the cold weather and excessive family gatherings. Maryland Governor Larry Hogan said that the state’s top source of infection this week was family gatherings. (Li Zhiwei)
