Americans are not going to stay home for Thanksgiving

Americans do not hear the authorities

The authorities called on Americans to stay home on Thanksgiving weekends and to cancel traditional holiday travel around the country. These recommendations are due to record hospital admissions across America putting medical facilities on the verge of disaster. Meanwhile, government data shows that such requests have been widely ignored. In recent days, millions of Americans have rushed to airports and motorways, resulting in the busiest period of travel to the USA since March.

Meanwhile, the number of patients treated for coronavirus in US hospitals on Tuesday exceeded 86,000, the highest number since the pandemic. In addition, 30 of the 50 states have reported a record number of COVID-19 hospitalizations this month. Over the past seven days, an average of 171,000 Americans have been tested positive for infection and more than 1,500 patients die of COVID-19 every day.

After an initial wave of infections in major U.S. cities in spring and summer, the COVID-19 pandemic has now spread to rural and small American cities. The incidence rate has increased significantly in the Midwestern states, exceeding that in any other region. Many hospitals in the Midwest report a shortage of hospital beds as well as equipment and clinical staff. Hospitals are asking staff to work harder to adapt to wave 3 of the pandemic, Reuters reports.

The most serious situation with COVID-19 is in the states where the population has been the most resistant to wearing masks and social distance practices in recent months. Kentucky Governor Andrew Graham Beshear said: "We are on fire with COVID". He said these words in support of the isolation measures imposed by state authorities last week, including new retail restrictions and school closures.

Chief Surgeon in the USA Jerome Adams said: "We just need you, the American people, to hold out a little longer".
