California’s COVID-19 deaths continue to drop


Fewest fatalities in a week since the end of May; average daily deaths have fallen 57% in 2 weeks

Daily deaths from COVID-19 in California continued to plummet Tuesday as many other statewide metrics held steady, according to data compiled by this news organization.

Counties around California reported 65 new fatalities from the virus, sinking the daily average further to about 56 deaths per day over the past week. The 394 total deaths reported over the past seven days were the fewest in the span of a week since the end of May.

California is also one of just a handful of states where there are fewer new cases now than there were two weeks ago, albeit not by much.

The Golden State has been stuck in a plateau between 3,000 and 3,600 cases per day for about a month. On Tuesday, counties around the state reported another 4,345 cases of COVID-19 — the highest single-day total in three weeks — which increased the daily average slightly to about 3,340 cases per day over the past week.
