U.S. COVID-19 deaths near 190,000

Cases are surging in Iowa and South Dakota, and the top U.S. infectious disease expert warned "we need to be doing much better." This report produced by Zachary Goelman.

Coronavirus deaths in the United States approached 190,000 on Wednesday.

The rising toll comes amid a spike in new cases in parts of the Midwest, with Iowa and South Dakota emerging as new hotspots.

The surge in Iowa comes after that state reopened its colleges, and it now has one of the highest infection rates in the nation, with 15 percent of tests turning up positive last week.

In nearby South Dakota, a Reuters analysis puts the positive test rate at 19 percent, with many cases linked to a densely-packed motorcycle rally last month in the town of Sturgis.

"We're starting to see the beginning of surges in places like Montana, the Dakotas, Michigan, Minnesota, Iowa." The top U.S. infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, this week told a health forum the nation the situation was "very serious and very concerning." "If you look at the country as a whole, we need to be doing much better than we're doing that's for sure." New U.S. coronavirus infections have fallen for seven weeks in a row.

The U.S. has over 6.3 million confirmed cases of the disease - the highest in the world.

Roughly 6,100 Americans died each week from COVID-19 in the last month.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control forecast that the death toll would top 200,000 by the end of September.

A closely-watched metric from University of Washington last week predicted U.S. deaths from the coronavirus would reach 400,000 by the end of the year.

The US Faces 3rd And Deadliest Wave Of COVID Yet

The US has entered its third wave of coronavirus infections. New cases are spiking in the Midwest, according to reports from Business Insider. Public-health experts worry this wave could be the largest, and perhaps deadliest, yet. A surge in cases and hospitalizations was expected since lockdowns have lifted. People are spending more time indoors and "pandemic fatigue" has set in. Seventeen US states have reported more new coronavirus cases in the last week than in any week prior.

COVID-19 cases are on the rise again in the US, according to Business Insider. This is especially true in Midwestern and western states. Experts predict this is the start of a second wave of the outbreak as the fall and winter season sets in. At least 36 states have seen an upward trend of cases this week. Meanwhile, countries like New Zealand have returned to mostly normal pre-COVID social behaviors. They attribute this to early action, taking isolation seriously, and trusting scientists.

Research: Sturgis Rally Likely A Superspreader Event For COVID-19

A new research paper on the spread of COVID-19 from the Sturgis motorcycle rally in South Dakota last month has generated both attention and skepticism. According to HuffPost, the paper claims that the 10-day event led to nearly 267,000 cases around the country. But that figure is far higher than the number of cases public health departments have linked directly to the festival, not to mention the state's Republican governor.
