U.S. Surge Sees 50,000 New Daily Covid-19 Cases


Two dozen states are now seeing an increase of more than 1,000 Covid-19 cases in the last two days, with a second wave threatening the Northeast. In Arizona, local masks mandates cut new cases by 75%.

The U.S. has reported more than 100,000 new COVID-19 cases every day for over a week straight. CBS News correspondent David Begnaud joined CBSN AM from Ohio, where hospital caseloads are exploding.
Ontario health officials project some 1,000 new COVID-19 cases per day in the first half of October, but Premier Doug Ford still won't say at what point the province could see rollbacks to Stage 2 of its reopening plan.
B.C. shattered its single-day record for new COVID-19 cases, confirming another 941 on Tuesday and 10 more deaths within the last 24 hours. 
Canada reported 5,713 cases of COVID-19 on Monday, a new single-day record. Both Ontario and Manitoba broke provincial records. Infectious disease specialist Dr. Isaac Bogoch says that's a very large number of cases for Canada's health-care system to absorb.
