US COVID cases to spike after Thanksgiving - Gottlieb

The number of COVID-19 cases in the United States will most likely spike after Thanksgiving, former Food and Drug Administration (FDA) head, Dr. Scott Gottlieb said on Thursday.

"I think after Thanksgiving, that’s going to be a turning point when the infection levels get high enough in many parts of the country that we start to see a policy reaction and also consumer behavior start to change. The month of December is really spent probably hunkering down a bit more, and hopefully we turn the corner as we get into the new year," Gottlieb told CNBC.

There were 73,240 new cases of the coronavirus registered on Wednesday, according to the Johns Hopkins University tally.
