Despite the sombre milestone of 500,000 deaths being passed, the numbers in the US continue to move in a good direction. The average number of daily deaths and the number currently hospitalized have now dropped to about the values that they had at their peak in April of last year. We still have some way to go before we reach the lowest values that were arrived at around July. I just hope people will not relax but continue to be vigilant and follow the guidelines for safety.
Our daily update is published. States reported 1.2M tests, 53k cases, 55,403 people currently hospitalized, and 1,235 deaths. pic.twitter.com/o5Kz53SoS2
