Covid Deaths Are Starting to Drop in Every Part of the U.S.


Covid-19 deaths have begun to decline in every section of the U.S., the latest sign of relief as cases continue to drop and the vaccination push accelerates.

The virus has been receding in the U.S. for about three weeks, but reported deaths — the lagging indicator that’s the ultimate measure of Covid’s impact — had remained near record levels.

Now, the seven-day average has shown signs of having peaked in all four U.S. Census Bureau regions, even the laggard South. The declines will buy states time as they attempt an unprecedented vaccination effort to get shots to most of the country’s 330 million people.
