Coronavirus death toll hits 10-month low

Over a year since the very first case of coronavirus was recorded in the United States, COVID-19 related deaths are down to about 600 a day across the country, the lowest since July 2020.

Back in January, the average daily death toll was 3,400.

Even confirmed infections are down lately. An average of 38,000 people in the states are reportedly infected. That is the lowest since September 2020. As recently as January, the country saw quarter millions of Americans infected daily.

The entire state of Massachusetts didn’t see a single death of coronavirus for the very first time since the pandemic started. Kansas didn’t see a COVID-19 related death all weekend.
