Coronavirus cases in the United States are headed toward a third peak, as cases continue to climb throughout the Midwest, Mountain West, Northeast, South and West.

Back in April, the country hit a grim milestone, logging a record seven-day average of 31,165 new daily cases, according to data from The COVID Tracking Project. Those high numbers eased off until July, when the country broke its record, logging a seven-day average of 66,143 new cases each day.

After a late-summer respite, the nation recorded a seven-day average of 53,282 new cases Oct. 16, meaning the U.S. is on track to break its daily infection record for the third time.

Infections are increasing in 38 states, with eight reporting record numbers of new COVID-19 cases on Oct. 15. Hospitalizations are trending upward in 39 states, including in Utah, where Dr. Eddie Stenehjem, an infectious disease physician at Intermountain Healthcare, said the uptick in COVID-19 hospitalizations is straining the health care system...

3. No surprise, Dr. Fauci has said the same all along

Fauci tells us it's going to be way worse for the holiday season (end of December-first week of January) than ANYTHING we've seen yet. Why aren't the Repukes paying attention?

5. Some of the most rural locations are finally going through their "first peak" while freaking out

...and doing so despite being aware of the unfortunate experiences of those of us in the NE and Mid-Atlantic, who fumbled around blindly, without any established testing protocols (and when there were some, it was extremely limited due to the lack of supplies, and thus entirely missing what we now know were "asymptomatic" carriers), and without the necessary PPE for even the medical front-line workers, let alone for the average person.

There is NO excuse now except for the selfishness and arrogance of the GOP and their ilk who have continued to throw up roadblocks to getting this damn virus under control.
