Leaked CDC chart says COVID-19 cases in the U.S. jumped 36.5%

A CDC document first obtained by Yahoo News shows infections in the US have jumped 36.5% in new COVID-19 cases between June 6th and June 9th.

The percentage is taken from a rolling three day chart. Cases averaged by the CDC have been 21,191, but in the three day window examined, totaled for 28,918.

It’s a jump in average difference of 7,727 new cases.

The chart also lists the worst ten countries working to fight major COVID-19 outbreaks.  That list includes Peru, Russia and India, all of which have had a small percentage in changes.  Meanwhile Brazil, Spain, Italy, Germany and Iran have had some of the worst. 

The U.S. leads all countries in the worst hit since the pandemic began. Earlier this week, Brazil removed months of coronavirus data stunning health experts.

All 50 states have ended their lockdowns and vary in their restrictions from state to state.

The case spikes seen by the CDC could be attributed directly to massive social injustice protests seen across the globe which started on May 25th.  Thousands of Americans have marched since then in cities, towns and small communities to protest the death of George Floyd.

Traveling has also increased, with visitation increasing at a local level with trips to local parks and more regular trips out, increasing variables for exposure.

At this rate, experts predict the US will see another 100,000 deaths by September.

On Tuesday, top US infections disease expert Anthony Fauci said experts are “at almost the beginning of understanding” the virus, saying coronavirus “isn’t over yet.”
