US counts 13M Kovid-19 cases, November marks its fourth million-milestone

The US reached 13 million diagnosed cases of Kovid-19 on Friday, sparring with them for another milestone in a month.

This was the fourth such marker counted by the country in November, which has seen 3.8 million cases of coronovirus. The US alone has a hearing speed of more than 4 million cases this month, more than doubling the previous record of 1.9 million cases scheduled in October.

More than 264,000 people in the US have died of the disease, according to NBC News.

The US crossed the 12 million-case limit in less than a week on 21 November.

The most recent million were inspired by the count cases in Texas and Illinois, each of which saw more than 80,000 new cases in the past six days. More than half of the states counted more than 10,000 cases in that time.

Thanksgiving Day saw Arkansas and Nebraska setting one-day case count records, part of a boom that has touched most of the country. Outbreaks have been reported everywhere from weddings to nursing homes, and while vaccine news brings hope, experts say this is the first step in a long process.

The CDC recommended Americans refrain from traveling for a Thanksgiving holiday, but US air travel reached a new epidemic peak on Wednesday, peaking in the prewar weekend.

After urging residents to stay home, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock went on vacation.
