#Roommates, although the news for the last few months regarding the Delta variant of COVID-19 has not been the best, there appears to be some good news on the horizon. According to recent reports from medical experts, COVID-19 has peaked in the U.S., as the rate of new cases has declined to lows that haven’t been seen since the early summer.
@NBCNews reports, within the last seven days, the number of new cases of COVID-19 have declined to impressively low numbers that were last seen on June 23rd. This latest update from medical experts is hopeful news that many have waited for since the Delta variant became dominant months ago. According to recent data from various medical experts, COVID-19 cases reached an all-time high on September 13th with 166,807, but since then, new cases have continued to drop gradually across the country. Based on new projections from Johns Hopkins, COVID-19 cases are expected to continue to decline nationally until at least January 2022, as shown from recent estimates.
Speaking about the recent COVID-19 drop rate, Shaun Truelove, Assistant Scientist at John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, had this to say. “There’s pretty decent agreement that we’re at the peak in cases nationally. There’s quite a bit of variability between states, but as a whole, it seems that we’re at or near the peak of this thing. Barring any rapid new change to the virus, that’s kind of the direction we’re going to continue to go — downward.”
Additionally, while select hospitals with low vaccination rates should still be on high alert, overall hospitalization throughout the country has also dropped, based on new data from the Centers For Disease Control And Prevention.
The CDC also reports that more than half of Americans are fully vaccinated, translating to 182 million people and 55% of the U.S. population.
