Us Daily Death Average Falls Below 2,000 For First Time In A Month

The daily average of COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. fell below 2,000 for the first time in nearly a month over the weekend.

In the last week, the average has declined by about 15.3% to approximately 1,920 virus-related deaths every day.

Although the average remains high, experts say deaths are a lagging indicator and the country may finally see sharp drops after several weeks of increases.

Additionally, the daily average of COVID-19 cases has fallen to 103,000 per day, reaching its lowest average since early December.

Since the country’s peak in early January, the average of new infections in the U.S. has dropped by 87%.
