Three million people are reported to have travelled through US airports from Friday to Sunday
The fall coronavirus surge in California entered a critical moment on the eve of the Thanksgiving holiday, with the state shattering a daily record for new cases: The state recorded 20,654 cases Monday, significantly surpassing a previous record of 13,400. Hard-hit Los Angeles County recorded more than 6,000 new cases, which was also a daily record: Officials are hoping restrictions imposed over the last week will slow the unprecedented spread of the virus and that residents will avoid big Thanksgiving gatherings that experts fear could spread the virus further: Last week, state officials announced a new order prohibiting most nonessential activity outside the home from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. in counties that are in the strictest “purple” tier of the state’s color-coded reopening road map. Roughly 94% of Californians — including all those in the southern third of the state — are subject to that order, which lasts until Dec. 21, though it could be extended.

Dr Anthony Fauci, the country’s top infectious diseases expert, told CBS News that people in airports “are going to get us into even more trouble than we’re in right now”
The number of people flying in the US is the highest since mid-March, when the virus started to spread rapidly in the country.
Cleavon Gilman, an emergency doctor in Arizona, tweeted: “Our pleas for help have fallen on selfish deaf ears.”
On Monday, the US – the worst-hit country in the world – recorded a further 150,000 cases of coronavirus, according to the Covid Tracking Project.
The number of people admitted to hospital with the virus has increased by nearly 50% in the past two weeks, while more than 257,000 have now died of Covid-19 nationwide:
- There are concerns in Los Angeles that some hospitals could run out of beds as the pressure of patients infected with Covid-19 becomes too much
- Texas Senator Ted Cruz has caused controversy by tweeting an illustration of a turkey with the words “come and take it”, with the Republican adding: “Wait till they find out we won’t give up Christmas either”. This comes as huge queues have formed at food banks, and morgues in the state become overwhelmed with bodies
- A large Pentecostal church in California ignored public health orders on Sunday by staging packed indoor services with conservative activist Charlie Kirk. Very few wore masks at the event
