Summary (IA Generated)

More than 2 million airline passengers were screened by Transportation Security Administration personnel on Friday and Saturday, while Americans were supposed to be curbing Thanksgiving holiday travel to help stem the skyrocketing spread of COVID-19.

More than 1 million flyers were screened Friday, only the second day since March to hit a million airline passengers, according to the TSA.

The real toll of Thanksgiving travel and gatherings won’t be known for weeks, but heedless Americans will further fuel the pandemic as it spirals further out of control heading into colder weather and the December holidays, Fauci said on “Face The Nation” on CBS.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned this month that virtual holiday celebrations would be safest, especially as COVID-19 cases and deaths surge to new records.

“As we’re seeing exponential growth in cases, and the opportunity to translocate disease or infection from one part of the country to another, leads to our recommendation to avoid travel at this time,” Henry Walke, the CDC’s COVID-19 incident manager, said in a call with reporters.

Travel on Friday was 40% of the number of flyers the Friday before Thanksgiving last year ― but that was before COVID-19.

The nation hit a single-day record Friday, with nearly 200,000 new confirmed cases.

It also reached a single-day record for hospitalization on Saturday, with more than 83,000 people checked into hospitals with COVID-19.
