Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “CDC Issues Thanksgiving Guidelines as Covid U.S. Deaths Surpass 250,000” – below is their description.

U.S. deaths from the coronavirus surpassed 250,000, marking a grim milestone as the nation struggles to contain a new surge in cases. New York City, the country’s early virus epicenter, said it will shut schools after infections crossed a critical threshold. Pfizer Inc. said a final analysis of clinical-trial data showed its vaccine was 95% effective, paving the way for the company to apply for the first U.S. regulatory authorization for a coronavirus shot within days. With the number of cases rising in Tokyo, the governor said preparations are being made to embrace measures if necessary. Japan’s daily Covid-19 cases rose to a record of more than 2,000 on Wednesday, according to local media tallies, while infections in Tokyo jumped by 493, surpassing a previous daily high set in August.

  • In This Story: Thanksgiving

    Thanksgiving is best known as a holiday celebrated in the United States on the fourth Thursday of November every year, usually through feasting, parades and travel to see family and friends, though celebrations were scaled back during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic.

    The roots of the modern celebration lie in settlers celebrating their arrival in the Americas in the early 1600’s. It has been a public holiday since 1941 due to federal legislation, an annual tradition in the United States by presidential proclamation since 1863 and by state legislation since the Founding Fathers of the United States.

    Traditionally, Thanksgiving has been a celebration of the blessings of the year, including the harvest. What Americans call the “Holiday Season” generally begins with Thanksgiving. The first day after Thanksgiving Day—Black Friday—marks the start of the Christmas shopping season.
