Only in two states of the country does the coronavirus curve decline slightly: Missouri y Vermont, where the average number of cases reported last week saw a 10% improvement, in contrast to an increase of 50% or more that states like Florida and Connecticut are experiencing, according to data from the Johns Hopkins University.
In the United States, the current average number of daily cases is 55,000, which represents an increase of 60% with respect to the infections confirmed daily in mid-September.
Last Friday, 10 states reported their highest daily numbers since the beginning of the pandemic: Colorado, Idaho, Indiana, Minnesota, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
Overall, 27 states are experiencing a 10-50% increase in the number of confirmed cases.
In addition, on Friday 69,156 cases were registered in the country, the highest daily number since mid-July, so experts assure that the country is entering a new peak of the pandemic.
