Many Americans are set to head to airports to travel for Thursday's Thanksgiving holiday despite coronavirus cases surpassing 12 million in the United States and health officials' warning people to stay home.
The country has more than 12,019,960 cases and 255,410 deaths, by far the worst global tolls and coming six days after the 11-million case threshold was breached.
Many cities reimposed lockdown measures just as the holiday - when Americans usually travel from coast to coast to be with their families - nears.
There are signs of hope: regulators gave emergency approval to Regeneron's antibody therapy, which was used to treat Donald Trump. And Pfizer and partner BioNTech said they will seek approval to roll out their vaccine early.
