Nationally COVID Continues Decline, With a Few Regional Outliers

June 9, 2021  ||  by Matt Albasi

COVID-19 numbers continue to decline across the country. Nationally, the country’s seeing 14,000 new cases per day, down from January’s high of nearly 26K. Deaths are down to 438 per day, a dramatic reduction from their peak of more than 3,300 per day in January. 

While most regions in the county are showing significant declines in case counts, there are three exceptions: Alabama, Montana and Nevada, all with cases increasing by more than 25%. These three states also have lower-than-average vaccination rates. Luckily, other metrics like deaths and hospitalizations are still declining.
