G*d willing, I will only feel the need to update this information for another month or two. The US is simply making great progress on all fronts, and there are no new outbreaks in any of the States.
Close to 40% of the entire US population is totally vaccinated, and almost 50% has received at least one dose:
As a result, both cases and deaths are lower than their troughs last summer, and are at 10 to 11 month lows. Deaths are down about 85% from peak, and cases down 88%:
At their current trajectory, there will be fewer cases than at any time since March 2020 in about 2 weeks. Deaths, which are declining at a much slower trajectory, may be there in 4 to 6 weeks.
And there are no States with rising caseloads. The 4 I showed last week - Colorado, Maine, Oregon, and Washington State - all are now in decline. And Michigan, which had a severe outbreak about 3 months ago, has seen a decline of 80% since then:
With some luck, I will be able to put up my last Coronavirus post, celebrating independence from the virus, on the 4th of July!
