The city confirms new infections – the highest tally in three months – with 50 cases linked to dance club infection cluster.
Forty-three states and the District of Columbia recorded more cases last week than the week prior. More than 1 percent of North Dakota’s population tested positive for the coronavirus this week, as did nearly one in 100 residents in Wyoming.
Twenty-seven states now have higher per capita infection rates than did Arizona during its summer surge. More than 83,000 people are in U.S. hospitals with COVID-19, the highest figure during the pandemic. And more than 80 percent of intensive care unit beds are occupied in 16 states.
The case surge has been most acute in rural communities, where health care options are fewer. Many small hospitals are full to overflowing, and patients can wait six to eight hours for a transfer to a larger medical center that can admit them — if those larger facilities aren’t overrun themselves.
“We’re full,” said Rob Davidson, an emergency room physician in a western Michigan hospital that has 25 beds. “The only time you get a bed is if someone dies.”

On Nov. 12, the N.L.D. sent a letter to 48 ethnic political parties inviting them to join it in building a federal democratic union and “ending civil war.” “The ethnic parties’ objectives are the same as the N.L.D.’s, and the N.L.D. will prioritize the ethnic peoples’ desires in the future,” the letter said. A party spokesman also said that new government “must be a national unity government.”
This is a welcome step, and it suggests that the N.L.D. is aware that even its apparently commanding mandate and ringing popularity have political limits in such a divided society. The risk, though, is that the party might only be gesturing at a government of national unity and will then try to co-opt the ethnic parties with various political rewards.
