U.S. sees record surge in coronavirus cases
"Today. We have had what is the largest number of new cove infections in this country on any single day? Since the pandemic hit, we just hit a new record. This is the screaming headline right now the Washington Post America hits highest daily number of coronavirus cases since pandemic began nation is poised to enter its worst stretch yet of the pandemic with hospitalizations rising in thirty eight states. Wanted. To show you those statements tonight from Caldo Doshi in the ICU nurse and emily caps the. In part because of where they're from. Mr Dotion is an ICU nurse working at what is now converted into a full Cova D- unit in Duluth. MINNESOTA. But Emily Cops, the CNA she's in, as I said, a town called Quinta Kansas. Quinta Kansas is population one thousand. That's Work Winter Kansas's. It's four hours, drive north west of Wichita. If you're trying to find it on the map, it is as rural as rural America gets. That's what's happening. Now, that's what's driving this in the country. The last time we had case numbers anywhere near this Hai literally, most of the cases in the country at that time were from a handful of large population states for Florida and California and Texas and Arizona now, it's a handful of states it's everywhere. And there's something else I want to point out about where we are right now. Can we can we? Put the national graph back up there for a second. Look at look at where we've been not just where we are right now. But where we've been that I peek that we got in early April of terrible right when up to like thirty thousand cases day just atrocious thousands of Americans died hundred thousand people dead by the end of May because of that peak in new cases that we saw in early April. But? Look. How we got to that peak, we got to that peak from here on the graph look at the baseline we built up from in that case, right? We got to that I we were starting at zero it was a new virus, the no, the novel coronavirus we started with basically zero cases in this country in January February, and we went in that first peak from zero cases up to thirty thousand cases today. But then after that I peak and we started to come back down we didn't come all the way back down. We didn't go all the way back down to zero. We never actually got below an average of about twenty thousand new cases every day so that we started to surge again, we were searching from a higher point. There was tons more virus circulating in the country at a baseline level, and so because we were building on a bigger base line. When we had a second surge while there was higher amounts of virus circulating out there every day our second peak ended up being that much higher. Our second peak ended up being twice as I in terms of the peak rate of new infections because our baseline started higher. Right and in that second peak. Tens of thousands of people died right that's when we hit that second peak in high summer. All those cases stacked up with a high summer. We ended up with two hundred thousand Americans dead by the third. Week of September. After we saw that huge pecan cases in the high summer. But now, here's our problem right now because after that second scary second peak in the high summer when we drop back down again, not only do we not go down to zero wouldn't even go back down to where we we're. We're our baseline had previously been. When we drop down after that second peak, our new baseline didn't spend much time low forty, thousand new cases a day. and. Now that huge high baseline number is where we are climbing up from. So how high are we going to get this time I? Mean our peak number of infections keeps getting higher with each subsequent surge because with each subsequent surge, we're building on an increasingly large baseline. An increasingly large baseline of virus circulating in the country and that is happening over time as time moves from left to right on this graph, you can see our country increasingly failing overtime. And getting worse and worse and worse at stopping the spread of the virus, which is why peaks keep going up. If we can't get our baseline down ever if each new baseline between these surges is higher than each. Peak is going to be higher to and that many more Americans are going to die with each search. So, right now, we never got low right right now, this new search that we've got right now is coming out of a baseline. Of Forty thousand cases a day with a ton of virus circulating in the country. And where we are right now heading back up to a new peak, who knows how high it's going to be we've got a forty percent rise on hospitalizations in this country in the past month. In. The past week at least fourteen states have set hospitalization records. And we're just getting worse and worse and worse than even trying to contain it in some places yesterday in one county in. Idaho. Regional Health Board meeting they heard from their regional epidemiologist that the hospitals in that region of northern. Idaho.
