More than Half of U.S. States Set Records for Daily Coronavirus Cases in October

Twenty-nine states set new records this month for the number of new daily coronavirus cases.

The average number of daily new cases this past week increased 21 percent from the previous week, CNN reported, citing statistics from a Johns Hopkins University tracker.

As of Wednesday, 40 states had at least 10 percent more new cases this past week compared to the previous week, CNN reported. Missouri is the only state with at least 10 percent fewer cases, while the other nine states held steady.

“We’re rising quickly,” said Dr. Ashish Jha, dean of Brown University School of Public Health, CNN reported. “If we just go back about six, seven weeks ago to Labor Day, we were at about 35,000 cases a day. I wouldn’t be surprised if we end up getting to 100,000 new cases a day.”

The U.S. currently has roughly 8.8 million coronavirus cases and 227,000 related deaths, both tops globally, according to the Johns Hopkins tracker.
