The United States has just crossed two very depressing thresholds. The first is the fact we’ve reached four million cases of COVID-19 and we are approaching 150,000 cases. If there’s any good news, it’s that cases may start reaching a plateau.
After weeks of sharp increases, there are some signs that new coronavirus cases in the United States may be plateauing at a high daily rate.
Nationally, the seven-day daily average of new confirmed cases was just under 66,000, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. That is still a startlingly high number of infections, but it’s the lowest it has been in the US in 10 days.
The trend can be seen more clearly in new case totals in Arizona, Texas and Florida. In these states, which reopened without effective safety protocols and saw rapid case spread since June, new cases have flattened or slightly decreased recently.
With that said, plenty of celebrities are also feeling the wrath of ‘Rona. July was a particularly active month for people battling the virus.
