U.S. records over 7 million COVID-19 cases

The number of novel coronavirus cases in the United States topped 7 million - more than 20% of the world's total - as Midwest states reported spikes in COVID-19 infections in September, according to a Reuters tally.

Freddie Joyner has more.

The number of COVID-19 cases in the United States topped 7 million Thursday, as states in the Midwest are seeing a spike in new infections.

All Midwest states except Ohio reported more cases in the past four weeks as compared with the prior four.

South Dakota had the biggest percentage jump at 166% with over 8,100 new cases, while North Dakota’s new cases doubled to over 8,700.

Many cases in those two states have been linked to the annual motorcycle rally in Sturgis, South Dakota, that yearly attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors.

California leads the country with over 800,000 total cases, followed by Texas, Florida and New York.

U.S. confirmed cases are the highest in the world followed by India and Brazil.

Months into the pandemic, over 700 people die in the United States from COVID-19 everyday, with the country averaging 40,000 daily new infections.

Top U.S. infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci has said he would like to see that number fall below 10,000 per day before flu season starts in October.

Health officials and President Donald Trump have presented different views about the nation's health crisis.

Trump, who is seeking re-election, claimed earlier this month that the United States was “rounding the corner” on the crisis.

Fauci contradicted the claim the next day, saying the statistics were disturbing.

The latest milestone comes just days after the nation surpassed over 200,000 COVID-19 deaths, the world's highest death toll from the virus.

The US Faces 3rd And Deadliest Wave Of COVID Yet

The US has entered its third wave of coronavirus infections. New cases are spiking in the Midwest, according to reports from Business Insider. Public-health experts worry this wave could be the largest, and perhaps deadliest, yet. A surge in cases and hospitalizations was expected since lockdowns have lifted. People are spending more time indoors and "pandemic fatigue" has set in. Seventeen US states have reported more new coronavirus cases in the last week than in any week prior.

COVID-19 cases are on the rise again in the US, according to Business Insider. This is especially true in Midwestern and western states. Experts predict this is the start of a second wave of the outbreak as the fall and winter season sets in. At least 36 states have seen an upward trend of cases this week. Meanwhile, countries like New Zealand have returned to mostly normal pre-COVID social behaviors. They attribute this to early action, taking isolation seriously, and trusting scientists.

Research: Sturgis Rally Likely A Superspreader Event For COVID-19

A new research paper on the spread of COVID-19 from the Sturgis motorcycle rally in South Dakota last month has generated both attention and skepticism. According to HuffPost, the paper claims that the 10-day event led to nearly 267,000 cases around the country. But that figure is far higher than the number of cases public health departments have linked directly to the festival, not to mention the state's Republican governor.
