Washington: The COVID-19 cases in the United States have crossed eight million on Thursday, representing one million raise in less than a month.
The country has experienced a surge in cases since the beginning of the fall.
Since May, over 217,000 people have died due to COVID-19 complications within the US.
On Wednesday, the country reported 60,000 new cases, which is the highest daily count since August 14.
The Midwest region of the US is currently experiencing a rapid increase in coronavirus cases, however, every region is suffering from the pandemic.
Health experts have warned against indoor social gatherings as the lowering temperatures drive people inside, promoting the spread of the virus.
The reason for the rising number of cases has not been pinpointed, however, experts have claimed that the increase can likely be attributed to fatigue with COVID-19 precautions and students returning to in-person schooling and college campuses.
