This was predicted as the worst-case scenario.

The US recorded a staggering 102,831 new Covid-19 infections Wednesday — the first time since the start of the pandemic it has reported a six-figure number.

The new high, as harrowing as it is, is only one part of a number of grim indicators pointing to what experts have already projected: an unprecedented fall and winter surge that will likely continue to get worse.

In just the past week, the US saw its top five days with the highest case numbers, with the country’s previous record set at 99,321 infections on October 30. The nationwide 7-day average of new infections is now about 89,859, up by about 108% in just a month.

Now more than 9.4 million Americans have been infected with Covid-19 since the start of the pandemic and more than 233,000 have died, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.

Do you remember who predicted 100,000 new cases a day?

Dr. Fauci, that’s who. 

And he was not alone, and yet the Trump Administration ignored their advice, so here we are. 

It did not have to be this way.
