Experts from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention urge Americans to give up Thanksgiving trips, as the spread of coronavirus is getting worse every day.
According to Johns Hopkins University, the coronavirus outbreak in the U.S. has worsened significantly in the last week, with more than 1,700 new cases reported across the country on Wednesday. The CDC now predicts that “the number of newly reported deaths from COVID-19 is likely to increase over the next four weeks, with between 7,300 and 16,000 new deaths reported during the week ending December 12, 2020.
On Thursday, the CDC issued another recommendation that calls on Americans not to go anywhere for Thanksgiving to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
Dr. Henry Walke, manager of the CDC with COVID-19, said, “There is no time more important than now for every American to redouble our efforts to fight the virus, keep an eye on distance, wash hands and, most importantly, wear a mask. It’s also better not to travel at all now.
