Medical personnel transporting a patient to the emergency room at University Medical Center in El Paso, Texas on Thursday, Dec. 10, 2020. With a current average of more than 2,200 deaths per day, COVID-19 is, for now, surpassing heart disease and cancer as the leading killer in the United States.

MISSION, Kan. - Just when the U.S. appears on the verge of rolling out a COVID-19 vaccine, the numbers have become gloomier than ever: Over 3,000 American deaths in a single day, more than on D-Day or 9/11. One million new cases in the span of five days. More than 106,000 people in the hospital.

The crisis across the country is pushing medical centers to the breaking point and leaving staff members and public health officials burned out and plagued by tears and nightmares.

All told, the crisis has left more than 290,000 people dead nationwide, with more than 15.5 million confirmed infections.
