COVID-19 DEATHS IN THE UNITED STATES DROP FOR FIRST TIME IN FOUR WEEKS

The US death toll from COVID-19 fell 16 percent to about 7,200 people last week, the first decline in deaths after four weeks of increases, according to a Reuters tally of state and county reports.

The country posted more than 376,000 new COVID-19 cases for the week ended Aug 9 or an average of roughly 53,000 per day.

New cases have fallen for three straight weeks, though the United States still accounts for a quarter of 20 million cases.

Last week’s decline in new cases came largely from recent hot spots.
