In the United States, the number of COVID-19 deaths reported daily fell to its lowest point in more than a year on Sunday, and the country recorded 222 deaths.
The United States recorded 676 deaths on Saturday, resulting in a drop in the daily death toll. According to statistics from Johns Hopkins University. Data show that the daily death toll has reached its lowest point since the beginning of the pandemic on March 23, 2020, when 192 deaths were recorded.
Data from Johns Hopkins University usually shows that the number of deaths from the coronavirus on Saturday and Sunday has fallen in the case of different reporting methods for state and county COVID-1
A spokesperson for Johns Hopkins University said in response to Hill’s question about low totals: “Many states either did not report on the weekend or did not have any deaths to report.” “About 37 days did not report any. New deaths, or no new deaths due to holidays. The California data portal closed yesterday and we are distributing data in the reverse direction.”
According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the number of deaths on Sunday fell from an average of seven days to 804 deaths per day on Saturday. This is down from 968 the previous week.

Rochelle Walenksy, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said that at the White House COVID-19 response team briefing, the average number of deaths in seven days has fallen compared with last week’s data.
But she warned that the country is entering the fourth week of “trends and case increases,” which includes CDC data, which recorded a 7-day average of approximately 64,000 cases per day and 4,970 hospital admissions per day.
When the news broke, Varensky had already achieved balance It warns of the risks that still exist in the pandemic and encourages the progress of vaccination work in recent days.
She said in a briefing on Monday: “Although we are watching these increased numbers of cases, the good news is that millions of Americans are stepping up vaccinations every day.”
On Monday, health officials celebrated that nearly a quarter of American adults (nearly 60 million) had been fully vaccinated, and 40% of them had received at least one dose.
Last week, Varensky warned that if people do not take health precautions, COVID-19 cases will rise and “doomed to death”.
