The pandemic is devastating the United States worse than ever before, with several grim milestones coinciding: 100,000 people were admitted to hospitals for COVID-19, and 3,157 deaths were attributed to the virus - all in one day. The death toll surpasses the 9/11 attacks and shows no sign of reversing course in the weeks ahead, as Americans wait for vaccine distribution to begin.
