Deaths/day over the past week: 992.
Hospitalizations related to Covid are at an all-time high at 61,964–Nov 10 was the first time the hospitalization peak in April was surpassed.
Understanding who is dying is not easy. New York state, where Governor Cuomo was one of 6 governors to demand nursing homes take back Covid-infected patients, claims only 25% of Covid-related deaths occurred in people residing in nursing homes or similar settings, while New Hampshire reports that 81% of deaths occurred in such residents. Cuomo, who may face legal action over his decision, would benefit by reports of low death rates in this group.
