According to forecasts, the United States is now grappling with the growth of the new Covid-1 surge – which could fill a hospital, kill thousands of Americans in a single day by January, and save young people from long-term complications.
“In early September, we reported about 1,000,000 to 55,000 new cases a day. Now we’re getting back about 1,000,000 new cases a day. And that will continue to grow,” said Dr. Peter. Dean Hotez of the Baylor College of Medicine’s National School of Tropical Medicine said Tuesday.

And Drs. Anthony Fawcett, the country’s top infectious disease specialist, sounded an alarm about test-positivity rates in some states, saying they could be a good indicator that steeper rates are rising in the case rate.

But in at least 13 states, the figure was above 10%: in Alabama, Florida, Iowa, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, South Dakota, Utah, Wisconsin and Wyoming, according to the COWID tracking project.
“You want to see (rates) less than 3%, the best 1% or less,” said Fawcett, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, at an event hosted by American College of American Pathologists.
