"We're alarmed," Dr. Henry Walke, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Covid-19 incident manager, said during a press briefing Thursday where the agency urged people not to travel over Thanksgiving.
The U.S. first crossed 100,000 new Covid-19 cases on the Nov. 3, Election Day, and infections have continued to climb to all-time highs ever since.
In the U.S., a record 80,698 Covid-19 patients were in the hospital Thursday, according to the Covid Tracking Project, which is run by journalists at The Atlantic.
The White House coronavirus task force's latest weekly report, obtained by NBC News, painted a bleak picture.
