Coronavirus tally: Daily cases break out to 4 1/2-month high, as hospitalizations keep climbing


The U.S. is stocking up on COVID-19 vaccines and health regulators have recommended updating booster shots to fight the omicron subvariants, amid concerns of another surge in the fall and spring. There’s good reason for those concerns, as the seven-day average of new COVID-19 cases have broken out of a two-month range, and has risen 10% from two weeks ago to 114,000 on Thursday, according to a New York Times Tracker, the most since Feb. 16. And the daily average for hospitalizations have increased every day since April 18 to 33,077 on Thursday, which was up 10% from two weeks ago and the most since March 8. The daily average for deaths was 378 on Thursday, up 18% from two weeks ago, but down from a two-month high of 388 on Wednesday.
