COVID-19 Deaths and Hospitalizations Set Records In New Single-Worst Day

The remaining 11 people died following a positive test in a setting other than hospital.

New York State reported 34,618 fatalities, at the top of the U.S. state-level death toll list.

News of the record-breaking statistic comes the same day the United Kingdom announced a major step in its race to develop COVID-19 vaccines, formally approving Pfizer and the German company BioNTech's vaccine for emergency use. Nationwide, the coronavirus is blamed for more than 275,000 deaths and 14 million confirmed infections. The average daily death toll was 145.43 in November.

Over 270,000 deaths from the virus have been confirmed in the United States since the start of the Pandemic.

Half a million COVID-19 deaths were reported in just the last two months, indicating that the severity of the pandemic is far from over as vaccinations are set to begin in December in a handful of developed nations. About a fifth are in intensive care. The figure has more than doubled over the past month.

A top health official said emergency approval for a vaccine is coming soon. Pfizer says the vaccine is 95% efficient.

"No corners have been cut", he said. "We're not defenseless. The truth is that mitigation works". "You know it also is just unacceptable that the president of the United States is trafficking in this and doing it."Once again, an exposé meant to make Zucker and CNN look bad has only revealed that they are simply adhering to reality.Project Veritas' CNN Sting Uncovers Explosive News That Tucker Carlson Is RacistRead more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day".

U.S. officials have said they expect infection numbers to continue rising over the next few days because many people travelled over the Thanksgiving holiday, ignoring government advice."Travel volume was high over Thanksgiving", said Cindy Friedman, chief of the travellers' health branch at the CDC.

According to the new data, California became the first state to report over 20,000 new cases, the highest total recorded by a U.S. state in one day throughout the entire pandemic. Wisconsin also set a single-day record for deaths.
