  • My name is Coral Jesus.

  • We're happy to have you watching CNN.

  • 10.

  • The fight against coronavirus continues as the disease itself continues to spread.

  • The Cove in Tracking Project, an organization that gathers data from across the United States, says almost 62,000 people with co vid 19 were in the hospital on Tuesday.

  • That's the highest number of covert related hospitalizations it's recorded this year.

  • And some hospital systems say they're running low on available beds for sick patients, in part because so many people are there with coronavirus.

  • Health officials say the pandemic is spreading in every state, though not at the same rate everywhere.

  • Most people who catch coronavirus do recover.

  • We told you the other day how more than 99% of those who get infected are estimated to survive.

  • But since the pandemic began, American states, like other countries, have struggled with finding the balance between enforcing safety restrictions and allowing people to live freely in attempts to slow the spread.

  • The governor of Nevada is urging residents to stay home and not host any dinner parties.

  • The governor of Wisconsin wants people to cancel gathering sleepovers and playdates.

  • And the state of California is requiring people to hold any get togethers outside where face coverings and not host any events where people come from more than three different households.

  • With the Thanksgiving holiday approaching, these guidelines and requirements have received a lot of criticism by people who want to see friends and family members and accept the risk themselves.

  • Amid all this tension is talk of mawr lockdowns when people aren't allowed to leave their homes except to go to certain jobs, the grocery store or the doctor.

  • But an increasing number of health officials say that's not the answer.

  • Many of them are pushing for more testing and tracing of coronavirus cases, and they're concerned the public won't go along with another locked down anyway.

  • On the positive side, there is a new antibody treatment available.

  • The pharmaceutical organization that developed it is Eli Lilly and Company.

  • The US government says the treatment will be free, but it has to be given in a hospital or doctor's office.

  • The U.

  • S.

  • Food and Drug Administration issued an emergency use authorization for it, which will speed up its availability.

  • It hasn't been proven effective for people who are already hospitalized with serious cases.

  • Officials say the therapy will be used to treat adults and Children with mild or moderate cases of Cove in 19 12th Trivia.

  • Which of these geographic features is about 1580 miles long.

  • Great Barrier Reef, Mariana Trench, Grand Canyon or Mississippi River?

  • It's the Mariana Trench, the deepest point of the ocean that's a little less than 1600 miles in length.

  • Diving deep in our next story, China says it's broken its own record for deepest man dive into the ocean.

  • Yesterday morning, a Chinese Submersible landed on the sea bed of the Mariana Trench, its depth 35,790 ft.

  • That's more than six miles below the waves, and it's only 63 ft shallower than what's believed to be the world record depth that was reached by an American explorer last year.

  • This isn't just about bragging rights, though.

  • China says it's about resource is new.

  • Diving equipment can help researchers draw quote treasure map of the deep, according to the designer of the Chinese Submersible and the Pacific Ocean, is said to be a treasure trove of rare earth elements.

  • China wants to keep its dominance in the production of rare earth materials, with Japan and India making investments to explore and extract their own.

  • They are everywhere.

  • You'll find them in your phone, your car, even in wind turbines without rare earth elements.

  • A lot of the technology we have today wouldn't exist in its current form their mind in places like this and then milled into a concentrate before being processed into the pure metal.

  • Global appetite for rare earth elements is surging.

  • There's actually about 50% rare earth contained in this concentrate.

  • But what are they were contrary to the name.

  • They're not actually that rare, rare earth elements or a collection of 17 metals there found here on the periodic table with names that are almost impossible to pronounce.

  • And while they're abundant, they're not often found in quantities that make extraction economically viable.

  • They're known for having similar properties and are mostly used in magnets, catalysts or in hybrid car batteries.

  • Even some military equipment requires rare earth elements.

  • China is by far the biggest producer.

  • It has a third of the world's deposits on accounts for more than 90% of global production and supply.

  • And while there are a handful of other countries with deposits, mining them is only half the battle.

  • Bigger issue is processing, and purifying that's a dirty process can involve handling radioactive waste.

  • Up until now, most countries have been happy to leave that work to China.

  • The US has one rare Earths mine, but it's still exports its product to China for processing.

  • As more and more technology appears, that relies on rare earths, and demand for that technology grows.

  • So does the dependency on China.

  • It's been said that technology is growing smaller, with the camera in your pocket on Lee a fraction of the size of this beloved antique.

  • But it's also being utilized on a much larger scale.

  • The walking building we told you about last week is one example of how robot legs controlled by computer sensors moved a £15 million schoolhouse in China.

  • There's another type of building on the move in New York City.

  • It's a $500 million structure that aims to make the most of its space by physically expanding to create new ones.

  • Way really wanted to do was to think about spaces that could respond to needs as they change, and two people as the demographic changes.

  • So everything that we think about has to have a future life, whether that's moving or just being reused.

  • I think what might happen is that these buildings that you see around us will actually begin to open up and we'll breathe.

  • Will have Green will become much more about nature and less about concrete and glass.

  • So imagine if it's a building of a simple concrete frame.

  • There could be chunks taken out in those chunks.

  • Could be replaced with green spaces.

  • Residential to be popped in on this floor office buildings to be here, a park to be here, shopping down here, Hospital here and then that could all be changed over time.

  • What's driving the Smart City is a idea about sustainability, so the road would know when it's rush hour in one direction.

  • And another change.

  • How many lanes or going in that direction.

  • It would know when peak demand for electricity is, and so it would shut off its own cooling systems and run them on Lee a night when there's less demand going in and remaking the things that we already have around us to be better, I think, is one of the opportunities that we have and something I'm really excited about the future.

  • For 10 out of 10, you don't have to be a fan of the Smashing Pumpkins to be a fan of Smashing Pumpkins Every year after Halloween, the Discovery Center Museum in Rockford, Illinois, helps people creatively dispose of their guards.

  • Sometimes it works.

  • Sometimes it doesn't, but the organizers say their mission isn't Onley positioned on pumpkin pulver ization.

  • It's also about helping people learn, find joy and have fun.

  • That's fun for adults and guillotines alike.

  • They had a smashing good time.

  • It's no fun kin for the pumpkins, though.

  • I mean, they already have to endure being carved up, and they just don't see what Gord could come of being catapulted into the spotlight.

  • Hey, speaking of the spotlight, we want to shine the spotlight on Toha, Julie Community School and all of our viewers watching into Haji Ali and Laguna, New Mexico.

  • We hope you'll come back tomorrow for more CNN.
