“Hospitalizations have doubled since November 1 and tripled since October 1. We should see 100k hospitalizations in the next couple of days,” The COVID Tracking Project wrote on its Twitter account Monday night.
The group called November the “worst month of the pandemic outside of April,” as the nation recorded a record 4.28 million new cases of COVID-19, over 72,000 new hospitalizations and 36,256 new deaths.
