58 Percent of U.S. Counties Are Experiencing COVID Peak This Month

The number of COVID cases in the United States is increasing at an alarming rate. Johns Hopkins University's Coronavirus Research Center reports that while some parts of the country endured high rates of Coronavirus infection in the spring and summer of 2020, most of the country is experiencing the worst of it right now.

Most American counties (58 percent of them) have seen the peak of their Coronavirus infections this month, and 76 percent of counties have peaked at some point in the fall -- based on Johns Hopkins University research.

To date, the Coronavirus has resulted in over 55 million cases worldwide (191 countries/regions), and 1.3 million deaths globally. Even with such numbers, there are those who simply refuse to wear a mask while in public. Too many people seem to believe that they are naturally immune, or somehow invincible. This pandemic has truly shown two sides of society... those who truly care about their fellow man and will do what is necessary to help prevent the spread of COVID, and those who simply go about life in a selfish bubble -- not wanting to be inconvenienced in order to help protect others from harm.
