The U.S. added 196,050 new cases so far Friday, a record, as some states resumed daily updates following the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday.

The increase brings the total for the country to 13.1 million. Deaths increased by 1,406 to 264,823. The CDC said in a tweet that forecasts predict as many as 21,400 new deaths may be reported during the week ending Dec. 19, with up to 321,000 fatalities.

It also warned that cases and hospitalizations are rising.

Many Americans appear to have ignored warnings to minimize travel and keep family gatherings scaled back this Thanksgiving as a way to slow the coronavirus's spread. Now some epidemiologists are anticipating that the pandemic, already surging before the holiday, will actually intensify in coming days as a consequence.
