September is on track to be the deadliest month in the pandemic since the winter surge in February.

An average of more than 2,000 Americans are dying from the virus each day.

The rise in deaths comes as the CDC says 99% of all the COVID-19 cases in the United States were from the ultra-infectious delta variant.

The variant has caused sudden spikes across the country, forcing some hospitals to limit care, along with leading to the highest numbers of children’s infections since the start of the pandemic.

Pediatric cases are up 240% since July.
