For those wondering, the United States is on its way to beating COVID-19. Over the weekend, for the first time since the start of the pandemic back in March of 2020, the state of Texas reported a day of zero deaths due to the coronavirus.
Now according to Tina Reed with Axios, three other states — Arizona, Minnesota and Massachusetts — have also seen at least one day with zero deaths as well. This news doesn’t mean that there haven’t been any deaths for multiple days, but seeing that number dip to zero — even for a day — is a positive sign.
Plus, there’s the news that U.S. weekly deaths due to COVID-19 have fallen to the lowest number in over a year. According to Reuters, the average number of COVID patients in hospitals has also decreased for the fourth straight week, dropping 12 percent nationwide.
In other words, we are on the right path and will soon get back to a sense of normalcy. The road has been long and sometimes difficult, but we here at OutKick will continue to push the good news as much as some have pushed the bad over the last 14 months.
