The number of COVID-19 patients hospitalized for treatment of coronavirus continues to rise in the Untied States — reaching 85,700 hospitalizations in another record-high on Monday.

The news comes as the Transportation Security Administration reported on Monday that more than 3 million travelers boarded planes in a three day period — it’s highest number of weekend passengers since March in spite of warnings from health experts to avoid large gatherings and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention not to travel for Thanksgiving as cases surge nationwide.

According to the Washington Post’s data tracker, daily new coronavirus cases shot up by nearly 14 percent over the past week.

Nearly 12.4 million coronavirus cases and 256,000 deaths related to the virus have been reported in the United States since February.
