The United States has almost 50,000 people currently hospitalized because of the coronavirus in almost every state in the country, with just under 10,000 currently in intensive care units, according to The Atlantic's COVID Tracking Project.

The project found the current number of hospitalizations, which has not been seen since mid-August, almost matches the number seen at the pandemic's height back in April and July. Both hospitalizations and deaths due to the coronavirus are at an all-time high in Wisconsin, with 1,500 patients in hospitals and an average of 38 deaths each day.

"We're right at the beginning of what looks like exponential growth in a lot of states, the Midwest, the Great Lakes region, even states like Texas, where you see 6,000 cases, Illinois, 8,000 cases, Florida 5,000 cases, Wisconsin 5,000 cases reported Friday," former Food and Drug Administration commissioner Scott Gottlieb told CBS's "Face the Nation" on Sunday.

"This is very worrisome as we head into the winter," he added.

Johns Hopkins University's coronavirus tracking states the U.S. has as least 9 million coronavirus cases, and at least 231,000 people have died from COVID-19. The U.S. reported almost 100,000 new cases last Friday, which is the highest number reported in a single day of any country.
