COVID-19 Cases Rise After Thanksgiving

Jessica Saravia

With 2020 already being crazy itself who knows how these holidays are going to be like. Many will follow COVID-19 guidelines but others won’t even think twice about the rules. Thanksgiving is such a joyful holiday in which people spend time eating and watching football with many of their family members in which they may not alway get to see. This year for many families that won’t necessarily happen but, for some they will stick with their traditions and celebrate as they would if there wasn’t a pandemic. Which as predicted lead to a rise in COVID-19 cases and deaths after the thanksgiving holiday.


After the holiday the new COVID-19 cases have reached to a whopping 200,000 new cases and 3,000 deaths per day. Which has led the United States in the wrong direction compared to other countries in the world. Hospitals are already having shortages of rooms for patients who have the virus. A solution has been made and is active in many states including Massachusetts which are field hospitals. They are being used in the act to reduce the number of cases. With Christmas and other holidays approaching there will be no doubt that those number will rise.
