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.

Oklahoma passes bill banning majority of abortions from ‘moment of fertilization’
Oklahoma’s Republican Governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill into law on Wednesday which bans virtually all abortions “from the moment of fertilization.”
“I promised Oklahomans that as governor I would sign every piece of pro-life legislation that came across my desk and I am proud to keep that promise today. From the moment life begins at conception is when we have a responsibility as human beings to do everything we can to protect that baby’s life and the life of the mother,” Stitt said in a statement. “That is what I believe and that is what the majority of Oklahomans believe.”
The state legislature first approved the bill, which goes into effect immediately, last week. It bans abortions from the moment of fertilization, except for in cases where rape or incest occurred, or where the mother’s life is in danger.
The law also allows for private citizens to sue doctors or those who participate in “producing an abortion for up to $10,000, mimicking the enforcement mechanism in Texas’s fetal heartbeat law” reports National Review.
Under the new law it is a felony offense to perform an abortion, “which will take effect in August unless a court challenge blocks it.”
