New study projects up to 500,000 US Covid-19 deaths by February

Wearing masks could save more than 100,000 American lives in February, according to a new study

Iran's Health Ministry has reported 6,134 new coronavirus cases in one day, bringing the national tally to 5,56,891 in the Middle East's hardest-hit country, according to the latest available data.

A general view of the hospital at the Mayo Clinic Health System Luther Campus as the coronavirus disease outbreak continues in Eau Claire, Wisconsin October 22, 2020.

France, Germany, and the Czech Republic are among the several that have recently reported a new record in daily cases.

The United States on Friday hit a new one-day high for reported coronavirus infections with more than 83,000, topping the previous record set in July by more than 5,000, the latest data revealed.

"The key feature here is that a big winter surge is coming and our models have been showing it for months", Murray said Friday.

"Over the past week, the increase in daily cases has become very clear. The best strategy to delay re-imposition of mandates and the associated economic hardship is to expand mask use".

The U.S. also recorded 945 deaths due to COVID-19 Friday. But the company says the number of cases and deaths has increased across the United States.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Texas leads the country with the most new COVID-19 cases over the past seven days with 35,292 confirmations.

Early voting kicks off Saturday throughout county
Another 650 vote centers will open October 30 throughout the county, and will also remain open through election day. A short time later, a tally will be released of all in-person ballots cast at vote centers ahead of November 3.

About 400 thousand cases, registered on October 24, occur in North and South America, as well as in Europe.

The United States remains the hardest-hit country on the planet, and on Saturday it set a daily record for new Covid-19 cases for the second straight day, at almost 89,000, with a further surge expected as cold weather arrives.

The drug is now approved for patients over the age of 12 who are hospitalized with coronavirus.

"If we don't get that and we have such tremendous prevalence of Covid-19 in our communities, I don't see a great way out of this", Pothof said.

Chicago Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot announced a curfew on nonessential businesses beginning at 10pm yesterday.

Almost 2,500 people were hospitalized in IL, the state's top public health official, Dr. Ngozi Ezike, told a news conference.

Unlike past surges, where a few states drove up case numbers, the current high is being propelled by many states. Boston public schools shifted to online-only learning this week.
