Good vaccine news keeps rolling in, but more Americans are in the hospital with COVID-19 than at the peak of the outbreak in the spring. Thankfully, far fewer patients are dying. (

Even with all the excellent news about several vaccines, the White House coronavirus task force says daily US deaths from COVID-19 surpassed 2,000 for the first time since May. There is community spread of COVID-19 in more than 2,000 US counties. The U.S. is averaging about 173,000 new coronavirus cases per day in a fall surge that has also seen increases in deaths and hospitalizations. The pandemic is expected to worsen after the Thanksgiving holiday, when millions gathered, against the advice of public health officials.
