While all eyes have been on the election this last week, COVID-19 cases have continued to soar in the United States. According to this article from The Wall Street Journal, the U.S. has reported more than 100,000 coronavirus cases for the seventh straight day. Nearly 120,000 cases were reported in the U.S. on Monday, as the total number of confirmed cases topped 10.1 million, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.

Hospitalizations have increased nearly 25% since the beginning of this month, and daily caseloads have hit record levels in Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Colorado, New Mexico, and Maine. The nation’s death toll surpassed 238,000 as 670 new fatalities were reported Monday. This number is higher than the 462 deaths reported for Sunday, and higher than the 498 deaths on the Monday a week earlier.
