US Daily Deaths -- rising rapidly from a high base. US Daily Cases are at record highs. 2614 on December 1.

Update on November 26, 2020
The latest peak daily deaths came yesterday at 2332. The all-time peak was on April 21 at 2683. We will probably set a new record for daily deaths soon.

Update on November 14, 2020
New cases in the US are completely out of control. 183,527 new cases yesterday (Friday). Within a few days the US will pass 200,000 new cases per day. That's an average of 4000 new cases per day IN EVERY STATE.

It took 8 months to reach the level of 100,000 cases per day and two weeks to almost double that! We are 25 deaths short of a quarter million deaths in the US.

Update on November 12, 2020
Yesterday there were 142,906 new cases in the US. 1479 persons died from Covid.

NYC >>The coronavirus is tearing across the United States at a pace fiercer than ever. Hospitals are filled to perilous levels. More than 120,000 new cases are being identified every day. And ever higher and more miserable records — of states’ cases, of positive testing rates, of hospitalizations — are being set, day after day.

A pandemic that was once raging in New York and later across the Sun Belt is now spread so widely across the country that any number of cities and states might now be considered the worst off, depending on the measurement used.<<

October 31, 2020
To my knowledge no country in the world has recorded more than 100,000 Covid-19 cases in a single day. Before yesterday, that is. There were 101,461 new cases in the US on Friday, October 30, 2020 according to Worldometers. Their day begins and ends at 0000 hours GMT, 8 pm Eastern Daylight Time.

On October 9 I posted these numbers:
>The US has about 45,000 new cases per day and rising. India has about 73,000 new cases per day and falling. Call it 25,000 more cases per day in India.

I expected at that time that India would pass the US in total Covid cases. But India's daily new cases kept falling and the US cases kept rising. Yesterday, exactly three weeks later, India reported 48,120 new cases.

How is this possible? How can the US have twice as many new cases as an LDC with four times the population?

48 countries have more than 100,000 TOTAL cases of Covid-19. 170 countries have FEWER than 100,000 TOTAL cases including China with 85,940.

And this is by no means the end. We are seeing shocking and unprecedented incompetence in the United States.

Eleven doublings in 39 days. The number of daily deaths has not doubled since April 7.

Note the first distancing orders in the US came on March 15 &16. The first clear reduction in the rate of deaths came on April 11, 26 days later. This reflects the time from infection to death.

We can also look at doublings of total deaths in the United States.

Mar 31 ------ 5,000
Apr 04 ----- 10,000
Apr 09 ----- 20,000
Apr 18 ----- 40,000
May 9 ------ 80,000
Aug 5 ----- 160,000

Which puts us well past the prediction made by Inain Dogan on March 20.

"The total U.S. death toll by April 15th will be more than 20,000."
