COVID-19 Cases Trending Downward

The United States is making progress in the battle against the Coronavirus Pandemic. Confirmed cases are falling and more people are being vaccinated, but Officials warn it’s too early to be complacent with the deadly disease.

COVID-19 infections are trending down. Much of the U.S. is seeing cases drop significantly, according to Johns Hopkins University. However, Health Officials stress the Pandemic still poses a serious threat. The University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation projects another 130,000 deaths in the U.S. by June 1st.

CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky saying: “We really need to do the hard work to make sure that there’s universal masking, there is strict six feet of distancing between, that there’s cohorting or potting so that there’s restriction of disease if it were to be transmitted.” In addition to those preventative measures, the U.S. is focused on getting more Americans vaccinated. Former CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden adding: “Currently the U.S. is giving an average of a 1.5 million vaccinations per day but they’re only sending out about 10-to-12 million per week. That means nearly all that are getting sent out are now being used, in often a chaotic and disorganized way.”
