Fewest Daily Average COVID Cases Since June 2020
COVID-19 case numbers continue to plummet. This week, averages are around 24,000 new cases per day, levels not seen since June 2020. Only three regions in the country show increased case numbers according to the 14-day average: Northern Mariana Islands (1 daily case), Wyoming (79) and US Virgin Islands (14). They each have low case counts, so even a minor uptick in cases can cause an increased average.
Cases are down 37%, deaths down 12%, hospitalizations are down 23%.
The country approaches a milestone this week. Nearly 50% of the adult population has received at least one shot. Currently, 49.5% of the US population has received at least one vaccine dose, while 39.5% are fully vaccinated. The states with the highest % population with at least one shot are Vermont, Hawaii, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine.
