  • Bloomberg QuickTake: Now published this video item, entitled “Trump Says U.S. ‘Rounding the Curve’ on Coronavirus Even as Cases Surge” – below is their description.

    President Donald Trump said on Tuesday, October 28, that the U.S. is “rounding the curve” on the coronavirus, even though cases continue to rise across the U.S. He made the remarks at a campaign rally in West Salem, Wisconsin. Covid-19 hospitalizations have risen at least 10% in the past week in 32 states and the nation’s capital as the month-old viral surge increasingly weighs on America’s health-care system. Current hospitalizations soared 68% in New Mexico, 50% in Wyoming and 38% in Connecticut, among other notable increases, according to Covid Tracking Project data. South Dakota, Montana and North Dakota have the most current patients per capita, the data show. Nationally, current hospitalizations with Covid-19 have climbed 37% to 42,917 in the past three weeks, after months of decline. But they are still about 28% lower than they were during July’s Sun Belt surge, even as cases have risen to a record. About 6% of America’s inpatient beds are occupied by Covid-19 patients, according to data from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Coronavirus patients are taking up 10% or more of beds in North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana and Wisconsin.
