Earlier today COVID-19 deaths passed 14,000 in the US. Despite those numbers this was followed by the revelation that overall cases in the US actually dropped and recovery was up.
Deaths due to COVID complications will not reach an all time peak until around Sunday according to the most recent metrics. Going along with that Metric, it is important to note that not all states have seen their apex hit as of yet.
States like Montana, New Jersey and Texas (to name a few) probably will not see their apex until some time later in the month.
Nonetheless, this has not stopped officials and leaders from sharing more optimistic news about the spread of COVID. Previously insisting that we could be seeing COVID complicated deaths range from 80,000 to 120,000. That number has since dropped down to 60,000 which is a sizable improvement overall.
Trials, vaccines and antibodies are increasing the fight
Similarly, Dr. Anthony Fauci the leader of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said that projections are improving. We could be seeing a return to relative normalcy sometime around late August. Meaning we’re on track to see some re-openings sometime in mid to late summer.
