US COVID-Related Death Numbers Continue To Plummet

As states continue to open and sports stadiums start to increase capacity, COVID-19 numbers continue to drop.

As The Associated Press relayed, deaths in the United States related to the virus have dropped to an average of about 600 per day — the lowest in 10 months. In fact, more than half of the states are regularly reporting zero deaths, the AP noted.

“The last time deaths were this low was early July, nearly a year ago,” the AP wrote. “COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. topped out in mid-January at an average of more than 3,400 a day, just a month into the biggest vaccination drive in the nation’s history.”

Per the CDC, 45% of America’s adults have received a full dose of the vaccine, with close to 60% receiving at least one dose.

“The overall U.S. death toll stands at about 583,000, and teams of experts consulted by the CDC projected in a report last week that new deaths and cases will fall sharply by the end of July and continue dropping after that,” the AP reported.

Basically, restrictions are lifting, mask mandates are easing, fans are returning to sports arenas and ballparks in droves, and the data shows that positive cases are dropping anyway.

  1. Unless you live in the People’s Republik of Oregon, where Comrade Kate has mandated 70% vaccination rate in order to return our Constitutionally guaranteed freedoms to us and lift worthless restrictions.
