More bad news as the U.S surpassed 200,000 case in a single day for the first time. We broke 100,000 cases in a single day a little over three weeks ago. Health experts are also warning, as the nation moves into the holiday season the numbers may become erratic, possibly giving the illusion the virus spread is easing when it may not be.
The U.S. reported more than 200,000 COVID-19 cases for the first time on Friday, an all-time high reached about three weeks after the nation first reported 100,000 daily cases on Nov. 4. The nation recorded 205,557 new cases Friday. That rapid doubling, as reported by Johns Hopkins University, is reminiscent of the virus' growth this spring, when exponential spread prompted widespread restrictions across the country in an effort to control the virus...But experts warn that coronavirus testing numbers are likely to be erratic over the next week or so as fewer people get tested during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend and testing sites observe shorter hours. The result could be potential dips in reported infections that offer the illusion that the spread of the virus is easing when, in fact, the numbers say little about where the nation stands in fighting COVID-19.

From an article in Forbes a month ago.
President Trump has said the United States is “rounding the turn” – or “corner” or “bend” – on the coronavirus pandemic with shocking consistency over the last two months, a period in which average daily cases have risen sharply. Forbes link
What the hell is trump saying now? If he has one shred of decency left, he needs to address this.
