The United States saw a dramatic decline in new COVID-19 cases on Sunday — 47,500, the lowest single-day figure in about a month.
The new cases raised the total U.S. caseload to 4.668 million since the start of the pandemic, according to updated data Monday by researchers at Johns Hopkins University. There have been 154,800 deaths.
The Sunday figure is the lowest since the 45,000 new cases were reported July 6. In between, the United States averaged about 60,000 new cases each day. More than 1.9 million new cases were reported in July alone.
Deaths were also down Sunday, according to the COVID Tracking Project, which listed about 500 — down from an average of 1,100 the week prior.
