25 States Broke their All-Time Covid Cases Today. US Sets World Record. EPIC Vax Failure!

US sets WORLD record 489,267 COVID cases in 24 hours as country risks grinding to a HALT

The United States has hit a record of nearly 500,000 daily coronavirus cases – the most any country has ever reported – and risks grinding to a halt as experts say that the latest surge of infections will only get worse in the next month.

On Wednesday, 489,267 positive Covid cases were reported. According to data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), anywhere from 40 to 70 percent of new cases in America are of the Omicron variant, which was first discovered last month by South African health officials. The U.S. is now averaging 300,387 new Covid cases per day, a pandemic record and the first time the 300,000 mark has been reached in America.

More than 500,000 Covid cases were reported on Monday, though that was a result of a large backlog of cases from the Christmas holiday. Wednesday’s total is the largest increase from only a single day.

America is already at risk of being paralyzed by this latest surge as companies implement their own de facto lockdowns: Restaurants, bars and businesses – including big chains like Walmart and Costco – have been forced to close as they battle staff shortages due to infections. In New York City, tech giant Apple has shut all its stores. Broadway has also been forced to temporarily shut down some of its shows, including Hugh Jackman’s The Music Man, and others, like Waitress and The Rockettes shut down entirely for the season.

Pro sports leagues have also been forced into postponements. The NHL, for instance, has been forced to reschedule 80 games on both sides of the US-Canada border since the season started. The NBA, meanwhile, postponed its 10th game of the season on Wednesday due to a breakout within the Miami Heat locker room.

Travel is also becoming increasingly frustrating for Americans, with hundreds of flights canceled every day since last week. On Thurdsay alone, more than 1,000 flights were canceled and more than 600 were delayed.
