US recorded COVID-19 cases, deaths fall to lowest levels since March 2020

Source: The Hill

COVID-19 cases in the United States have fallen to around 15,000 per day, part of a sharp decline in new infections as vaccination numbers increase, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Rochelle Walensky said Thursday.

The seven-day average of about 15,600 cases per day is the lowest level of new recorded cases in the U.S. since March 2020 - though comparisons to the first month of the pandemic can be tricky given that testing still lagged at that time.

"Our seven-day average is about 15,600 cases per day," Walensky said during a White House press briefing. "This represents a decrease of more than 30 percent from our prior seven-day average and more importantly it is a 94 percent decrease from the peak of COVID-19 cases we reported in January of this year."

"This is the type of news I like to deliver, and certainly these data are encouraging and uplifting as we battle this pandemic," she added.

1. Since deaths are a lagging indicator, they should drop sharply in a couple of weeks.

We're so close to beating this thing - just as long as the selfish antivax assholes don't screw it up.

4. I don't know if you have seen Twitter in the last couple of days..

But Fauci's e-mails have been published and now the fuck heads are claiming that they knew something about hydroxychloroquine that we didn't. Even though none of it is really true.

I am going to be very worried for his safety in the coming months...

7. They're trying to gin up some outrage every day now

(the Memorial Day "Disrespect" nonsense, for example) and failing miserably. They want some hashtag to take off, and when it doesn't work they move on to the next bit of crap.

It's pure desperation.

3. "prior seven day average" could mean yesterday's seven day average

but I think she's referring to the seven day average a week ago

5. Thank you Dr. Fauci

for being the beacon in the storm, and to all else who helped make this happen.
