Some epidemiologists predict that the number of deaths in the coming weeks could exceed the spring peak, despite improved treatments.

Over the past week, the United States has added an average of 173,000 new cases daily. If this pattern of growth continues, the total number of reported cases for the entire month of November will likely reach 4.5 million. This would be more than double the number of any previous month.

With several days remaining in the month, around 3.3 million people in the United States had already tested positive for the coronavirus as of November 23.

North Dakota continues to experience the nation’s worst outbreak after adjusting for population, a position it has maintained since early September. Nearly one in 10 North Dakota residents have tested positive for the virus since the outbreak began, a large majority in the past two months.

But cases there as well as other parts of the Upper Midwest and Mountain West that caused the initial fall rise have leveled off slightly, as cases multiply on both coasts and in the south. and the southwest.

The New York City metropolitan area saw more new cases in April than any other month. And many counties along the Gulf Coast, as well as Arizona and California, have had more cases in July or August than in November so far.

But with more than 40 states recording a sustained increase in the number of cases, it is likely that more of those counties will set a record this month.
