COVID Cases Dropping

(Atlanta) Since the Delta variant caused a surge last month, the number of COVID-19 cases in the U.S. has been on a downward trajectory, resulting in nearly a 60 percent drop.

That’s according to data released Wednesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which reveals the new seven-day average in the U.S. is around 69,000 — a significant drop from September 13th’s weekly case average of 164,475.

Since then, the CDC says the number of new cases has fallen across the board, with the exception of five states, Colorado, Michigan, New Mexico, Utah and Vermont.
