Nearly 80,700 people were hospitalized with Covid-19 in the US on Thursday, an all-time high, according to the Covid Tracking Project. As of Friday, the US was averaging 74,063 current hospitalizations over the last 7 days -- up 19.13% compared to the week prior.

The US also set yet another record for new cases, with 187,800 new cases reported across the country, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.

1. As I sit here I hear a newscast saying, the vaccine 'when it comes it will not be a silver

bullet solution. Preventive measures will still have to be taken.'

[That will be a disappointment to many].
