The US reported more than 60,000 new COVID-19 cases in the last 24 hours, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. Total cases now exceed 7.9 million, with more than 216,858 deaths and over 3.1 million recoveries, according to Johns Hopkins.

Iran PressAmerica: Worldwide, more than 38.2 million people have been infected and nearly 1.1 million have died, the data show.

The number of people hospitalized for COVID-19 in the US as of Tuesday was the highest since Aug. 29, according to the COVID Tracking Project.

The seven-day moving average of new US infections, which smooths out day-to-day fluctuations, was 51,038 as of Tuesday, the highest since mid-August. The 14-day average stood at 47,498. When the seven-day average is higher than the 14-day average, as it has been since Oct. 5, it suggests cases are rising.

While circumstances differ locally, 44 states and Washington DC, have a seven-day average of new cases greater than their 14-day average, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of Johns Hopkins figures. That is the most states at that level since mid-July.

The total number of coronavirus cases in the United States in the next month will reach 10 million 57 thousand 496 people and the number of victims in this country will reach 237 thousand 954 people, Covidusa.net reported.
