More people were hospitalized for COVID-19 nationwide on Saturday than ever before during the months-long pandemic, with 91,635 patients currently admitted over the virus, data shows.

The new high on Saturday comes after hospitalization numbers dipped the day before for the first time in 30 straight days, according to the COVID Tracking Project.

“Hospitalizations have gone up every day since Oct 25 except for [Friday], and [Friday’s] decrease was probably related to holiday data reported on a one-day delay,” the group wrote on Twitter.

In total, the US has reported have been more than 13.3 million cases, including more than 266,000 deaths, according to figures from Johns Hopkins University.

There have been at least 4 million cases so far in the month of November, more than double the previous record of 1.9 million cases set in October, the New York Times reported.

Dr. Anthony Fauci on Sunday warned that these numbers will continue to skyrocket after millions of Americans traveled for the Thanksgiving holiday.

“What we expect unfortunately as we go for the next few weeks into December is a surge superimposed into that surge that we’re already in,” the nation’s top infectious disease expert told NBC anchor Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press.”
