The CDC tweeted:
The latest CDC #COVIDView report shows the percentage of deaths attributed to #COVID19 increased during the first two weeks of October. While this measure is down in recent weeks, it will likely increase as more death certificates are processed.
Dr Ashish Jha of Brown University insists the increase during the holidays is due to more indoor family gatherings. He advises we all keep indoor gatherings to a minimum, keep activities outdoors and wear a mask.
