Covid cases are declining; deaths may drop soon

New COVID cases are declining across America, and the death toll in Omicron is slowing.

Nationally, the U.S.'s average number of new cases is now nearly 240,000 per day — a 61% drop over the past two weeks.

Some states like Maryland and Washington, D.C., have the lowest number of cases in the country, each with fewer than 30 cases per 100,000 people on average.

Meanwhile, Oklahoma has seen the most significant improvement over the past two weeks, averaging about 70 new cases per 100,000 people.

Deaths are still on the rise, but those increases are slowing considerably - a sign that they may begin to decline soon.

The average death toll in the United States is now around 2,500 new deaths per day. These deaths can be almost completely avoided with vaccines. Smaller-scale outbreaks will also help save lives.

The total number of COVID deaths in the United States has exceeded 900,000.
