U.S.’s Daily COVID-19 Death Toll at Highest Since April

The U.S. on Tuesday had its second-highest total of daily coronavirus-related deaths since the onset of the pandemic in mid-March.

There were 2,597 new deaths reported Tuesday, just shy of the record-high 2,603 set on April 15, according to a Johns Hopkins University tracker.

Tuesday also marked a new high in coronavirus-related hospitalizations, according to The COVID Tracking Project. The project recorded 98,691 hospitalizations on Tuesday — more than twice the 47,531 reported on Nov. 1, CNN reported.

The project estimated that within days, 100,000 people could be hospitalized as a result of the coronavirus.

As of Wednesday, the U.S. has approximately 13.8 million coronavirus cases and 272,000 related deaths — both tops globally — according to the Johns Hopkins tracker.
