[Experts urge people to avoid traveling on Thanksgiving Day]

  On the 20th local time, the United States reported more than 195,000 new cases of new crowns, setting the highest number of new cases in a single day in the United States, far exceeding the level a few weeks ago.

According to data from Johns Hopkins University, during the surge in summer cases in the United States, the highest number of new cases in a single day occurred in July, slightly higher than about 77,000.

  According to statistics, less than a week after the cumulative number of new crown cases in the United States reached 11 million, the number of cases exceeded 12 million.

  Compared with the past few weeks, the new coronavirus has spread faster in recent days. It took about two weeks to increase from 8 million cases in the United States to 9 million cases, and it took 10 days to increase from 9 million cases to 10 million cases. It took only 6 days to reach 11 million cases from 10 million cases.

  Almost every state has reported a sharp increase in the number of cases, and the number of cases nationwide in the United States is climbing faster than ever.

Since the beginning of November, the number of new coronavirus infections reported nationwide has reached approximately 2.9 million.

  The surge in the number of cases has put tremendous pressure on hospital systems across the country, and has led many states to re-implement restrictions on businesses and gatherings, including night curfews, store closures, school closures, and mandatory mask regulations in some states.

  Public health officials warned that as social activities are increasingly being moved indoors, the virus is more likely to spread in indoor environments, so it will be very difficult to respond to the epidemic in winter.

Experts also expressed concern that national travel during Thanksgiving may cause the virus to spread more quickly. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended this week that people avoid Thanksgiving trips and gatherings.

  "The CDC and other agencies estimate that more than 50% of all infections are transmitted through people who do not show symptoms." The guidelines stated.

According to data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, among the cases of spreading the virus to others, 24% have never had symptoms, 35% have not yet had symptoms, and 41% have contracted other people when they have symptoms. people.

  The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that five days after people were infected with the new coronavirus, their infectivity reached the highest level.
